    TR headrests to standards

    Ok the deal is I want to swap my 07 TR headrests with a standard wrx headrest. I'm cheap/broke so buying the whole pair of seats would set my pockets on fire. I have some questions tho...

    1) Would the inserts in a standard wrx headrest line up with my seat? and still go all the way in?

    2) If they did (hopin so but doubt it), would other years/eyes fit to my year?

    any help would be appreciated

    The "standard" WRX didn't have headrests... it was a one-piece seat.

    They look a little cooler, but offer absolutely no more support or comfort than the TR seats.

    You'd have to swap the entire seat, and it would be strictly an appearance upgrade.

    Those are seats from a bugeye, not an 06/07.

    Agreed... those are bugeye seats.

    Yes, the posts will probably fit... but no, the color will not match your seats.
