    Help on interior modification.

    I'm contemplating doing a 05-07 center console coversion on my 03 WRX. This is where the help is needed. Is there any modification/fabrication and or re-wiring needed to be done to have a successful install? Just curious if anyone has done this(I no someone has) and how it turned out and what Lind of problems you ran into if any. All help is needed and very much appreciated. Thanks fellow subers!!

    hey dabiznas nice to meet you this is the best i can do for you

    It is not a hard swap my any stretch.

    1.) there is rewiring for the power mirror switch, because it moves to the door in 2005

    2.) the barking brake must be swapped for a 2005+ model & requires a lil tweaking so sit level on the 02-04 trans tunnel.

    3.) getting all the parts can be tough used or very pricey new.

    4.) In order to fully functioning the Auto climate is impractical, unless you plan to remove the ENTIRE dash & swap in all the HVAC from a complete donor car. This is NOT for the meek @ heart.

    4.a) Edit: ok miss worded: you can use the auto climate control panel, the auto feature won't work.

    Will the whole center console fit without replacing the dash, aside from the mirror controls, I've contemplated doing this in my 03 but haven't looked onto it very in depth yet

    Its a complete pain in the ass and can get expensive as finding used parts is tough. Why not do what the rest of us do and paint it black and get a JDM red hazard button
