  1. Thanks for clearing that up, real shame the higher end option didnt include bluetooth whereas the standard radio did. Cheers for the help
  2. Thanks for the help. Do you know if the Mic is the OEM one from subaru? Are you able to play music via the bluetooth or is it calling functionality only? Cheers
  3. Yeah the MPG seems to be a mixed bag when i researched it, i do think however i couldn't stop myself from having a bit too much fun if i had gotten the WRX. Ill get some pictures up later today, bit too dark by the time i got home yesterday. Cheers
  4. No CD Changer under the seat and i also have the MPG next to the clock in the upper display. I Have seen videos online of people connecting their phones and having a phone option on the menu screen, however i do not have that at all. I Tried using an RCA to 3.5 jack, however the only issue i found is that i cannot seem to have both the mpg display AND RCA audio playing. I Have seen that there was a blutooth mic that was an optional extra, apparently released shortly after the car came out. I Cannot seem to find much info of the operation of the mic, but it is listed as the blutooth kit, and an older US forum post i came across made it sound like the mic enabled the bluetooth functionality. Annoyingly still is that i have found one for sale, but the forum post is about a kit that includes the install disc with a different part number. So even with blutooth, is it strictly for phone call usage only, am i right in thinking no music can be played?
  5. Hi all, just purchased an 09 Impreza RX with the touchscreen headunit. Not used to having the MPG shown and really appreciate it where my previous cars had aftermarket single din units. My question is about blutooth connectivity. I Had purchased the car with the understanding that blutooth came standard on the touchscreen models, but it seems that i am wrong, and annoyingly the car i have has old RCA connectors in the armrest for the DVD player functionality. Ideally i do not want to go third party as i want to keep the trip computer, but can anybody advise on if a blutooth model can be purchased and if its a straight swap, or if there are any connectors that enable the blutooth function. Cheers Chris
  6. Hi all, just introducing myself, im Chris from somerset, just purchased an 09 2.0 RX model Impreza. Used to have a great Corolla T Sport that i parted with towards the end of its life and had a 98 Jeep Wrangler for the last 8 Months. Well that was silly as the MPG on that puts most cars on the road to shame and it was just not practical or fun to drive more than 5 miles in it, especially motorway driving. Managed to free myself of that just before Christmas and wanted a WRX, but couldn't justify the high road tax cost, and i wanted something on the cheaper side with low mileage (not to mention i had enough of crappy MPG with the Jeep), luckily i found found a nice low mileage RX near Birmingham. Drove it home today and had a blast. Its not as fast as my old TSport but its filling the gap it left and is very smooth. Annoyingly the car seems like it has been sat for some time, and has only done about 800 odd miles in the last three years (with it being advertised as "only serviced 750 miles ago"). Still it was a good deal and i look forward to driving it more. Mostly joined for the odd technical issue, part purchasing and advice. Cheers Chris
