Just a note about DIY. We have fixed a lot of DIY merges in the last year and it ends up costing more than 2x the price because most of the time we have to replace both the RS and WRX harnesses because they are damaged beyond repair and 4-6 weeks turns into 4-6 months.
Please be 100% sure you know exactly what to do from start to finish before cutting anything.
I'm not saying you can't do it yourself, as plenty of people have completed on their own successfully. I'm just putting the warning out there because I don't want to see any more people in these situations.
