    Interchangeable clocks

    Hi all, I'm new to Subaru so bare with me please.

    Bought myself a x reg (2000) wrx sti impreza, the bugeye shape.

    I don't like that the rev gauge is bigger than the speedo and seen a 2003 bug eye with a bigger speedo than rev gauge. Are these compatible and how tough are the clocks to come out.

    Cheers to all in advance

    what?

    "the bugeye shape" was only 2002 and 2003, the clock is on the top of the dash in the middle. the interior was the same from 2002-04 (not sure on start date), 05 introduced a new center console. I have a 2003 wrx wagon, and the speedo is in the center, tachometer on the right side, temp and gas on the left.

    I believe 2004 changed the location of speedo/tach so that the tachometer (rpm) is in the center and the speed on the right.

    I don't entirely understand what you are asking. also, there was no STi (in the US) until 2004. Do you know what kind of car you have?

    You're thinking of cars in your locale. In most of the world they arrived and were gone a model year earlier. The OP is correct and knows what car it is.

    OP: pull out the clock and see whether the three harness clips match the clock on the donor car. If both donor and recipient don't have the STi extras (or if they both do) then you are probably OK.

    If you want to go from plain (no rev buzzer) to fancy look for how-to threads for STi cluster swaps, these are popular in the US. If you need km or miles and must switch units too talk to a local shop though.
