    2015 WRX Side Mirror Swap???

    Hey guys, anyone know if it is at all possible for the 2015 wrx to have a side mirror swap to STI side mirrors or any other aftermarkets with turn signals built in? is it even wired to do so? I am still waiting on my order to come in and this is a mod that I would really like to do if it's realistic. Thanks in advance for any input!

    I work at a car dealership that sells Subies and I just asked the service advisor if it is even possible. His response was that anything you want to do to your car (within reason) is possible, depending of course on how much you're willing to shell out for it. To re-wire a side view mirror to have the turn signal light inside of it is not cheap plus the cost of the actual assembly. So to answer your question, I do believe it can be done but I don't think it would make sense to do it for the cost. Again this is just coming from my service department, I'm sure there are people that can do it for less and maybe even make it cost effective, but just passing along the info I was given. Hope it helps.

    They probably already have the wiring harness in it. Can't tell you for sure but subaru usually does that. The trunks in the previous gen came with both for the sti wing for the 3rd brake light and the wrx for the low rise wing led

    I'm willing to bet the wiring is already there. You just need the proper mirrors to connect to it. Subaru is known to leave wiring in all models. For example; non fog light models have all the wiring...you just have to get the fogs and the proper switches and install.

    Ya from the looks of it it may also be swappable. It's on connector so since the sti has the light the wiring will already be in place

    2015 Subaru wrx or 2015 Subaru STi?
    This question is for any true Subaru enthusiasts... Would you rather go for a 2015 WRX or 2015 STi? Is the STi worth it this year? I know the new WRX has a the new FA20DIT engine while the STi is still using the EJ25 motor.. I would plan to do mods and upgrades to either or, but does the FA motor have more tuning potential then the EJ? Is the hydraulic steering of the STi worth the extra price over the electric steering you get in the WRX? Any opinions are appreciated. Thank you!
