    VERY COOL! Clean install. how does the iPod function with the head unit? I'm not familiar with the Alpine/iPod deal.

    for the most part it works very good, but it is a little confusing(for people like me who dont read instructions), And its very fast scrolling and playing. It also makes the stock speakers sound alot better. Hope it answers your question

    Do you have to have a "play list" for when it's being used in the head unit? Or does it allow you to control your iPod from the head unit? Also, is that a forester box under the head unit?

    Thanks!

    Where did you get that little spacer right below the cd player? I have the same cd player that i want to put in but it obviously doesnt fit without that spacer or install kit or whatever it is.

    do all aftermarket HU's fit flush like that???

    I always though that when you get aftermarket HU's they stick out because of that stupid bezel. is that some special mounting setup or do ALL aftermarket HU's fit like that into a Subaru....if that's the case I'm going to go get one tomorrow.

    what do you mean you used double-sided tape, does that DIN pocket not open?

    To keep it in place. The double sided tape is located on the back (or sides). This is instead of drilling holes.

    I put in my Alpine head unit with no modification whatsoever. I ended up using the Forrester DIN Pocket and it workes great. Only problem is the button to open it is very close to the trim, you get used to it and it becomes second nature.

    did you have to get a different bracket for the head unit or did you just re-use the stock one and just mouned the radio and DIN pocked in it?
