here is a short install photo sesh of my new to me 2011 radio
So as most know i got a 2011 wrx radio from Grestch

dont it look purdey

the issue i ran in to was this newer radio has the new 20 pin connector and my car had the older 14 pin... so with some research i found

THIS web site Subaru radio and radio wiring harness information (david) he makes harness for subarus. check out the parts list he can make - Subaru Radio Wiring Harness - Order Form

I had him make the correct pin to pin connector with extra wire for the steering controls because i plan to put a wheel with controls in at some point. So those wire will sit dormant till then...

while the face of the radio look larger then a normal double din the body is normal sized... SO it fits in the regular radio slot

It fits in nice and tight

Had to trim the molding so i took some tin snips and cut little sections out at a time to not mess it up too much

Then i took my bigg ass cutting blade (only thing i had) and cut out the sides and lower area so the radio would pop threw

Not the prettiest thing but it does the job

All put back together

every thing works good.. just need to get the usb cord and il be good to go...only issue i have is during the day i can not read the display that well due to it being lower then where it would normally sit.

other then that its running well next to do it update the speakers to match the quality of the radio
