    New Head Unit with GPS/Aux/Bluetooth/iPod and Dash trimmed & painted 06 Wrx

    I still need to hook up the rear view camera on this unit, but everything else is finished. I plan to paint hazard switch and shift panel gloss black in the future. Not sure what to do about the A/C knobs yet..............

    I like it.
    Paint is clean, smooth, and no lumps.

    How much of a headache was wiring the HU?
    I'm going to start wiring a new HU in mine this weekend.
    Do you have steering wheel controls or a mic in the headliner?

    I had to purchase an adapter wiring harness, that's all. After splicing the wires with ease, then it was just a matter of using the existing stock brackets and making sure all the wires go to the correct ports. I did have to saw and file the trim around the unit in order to use all of the controls. I do not have steering wheel controls and a mic in the headliner.

    Yup, it took me a lot of sawing, filing, and sanding to make the trim around the stereo more flush.

    Sweet install man. I just wired in my AVH-4400 about a month ago..
    Head unit was easy, as was the bluetooth mic.. but DAMN that rear view camera wire was a butt to run.

    If I remember I'll post pics when I get home. Didn't have to cut or modify anything on the front end, fit nicely.
    When in doubt, frag out.
