    STI Exterior Mirrors on WRX

    Hey all,

    I have a 2012 WRX and would prefer the mirrors on the STI with the signals. Have not taken apart to check what is compatible, but thought i would ask here:

    - i assume its the same harness and should clip in
    - would need the exterior plastic cover
    - do i need the entire mirror assembly?

    I would probably source the parts through SubaruPartsWarehouse and figured since someone backed into my passenger side fender while parked on the street in Brooklyn where I live, I would get the mirror plastics painted too if this conversion is cheap and simple.

    For those wondering about the fender, i refuse to put bondo on anything new and bought a new fender for respray. Yes, serious OCD issues.

    Thoughts?

    Looks like you can also retro-fit the JDM folding mirrors (with some work)

    Do you happen to have a "limited" WRX? If you do it will be an easier upgrade since they are wired for it.

    Hit up Monkiboy (might be on here, I know he's on what used to be 3GWRX (WRXForums IIRC)), he is QUITE experienced with doing this setup.

    I thought some premiums and limiteds are pre-wired? or all? I read it's a real PITA if you have the base model WRX

    I would've thought the same. makes more sense from a cost perspective to make the harness the same for the same car / different models

    Lol, yeah, eventually I'll update it, gotta get some good pics first. And that'll be after I get some lift in there, since I prefer the desert pics. Could always go to my downed chopper spot and do some pics though.
