    Maybe you can swap out the cupholder piece with a JDM piece since it's on the other side? I'm just guessing.

    To my knowledge no one has attempted this yet. As mentioned before the e-brake was moved and everything from the top vent on the dash all the way down to the armrest extension/compartment was changed, so the mounting holes might not even line up.

    IIRC the 05's (apart from the RS) have fully auto climate control, so you might have to buy that system as well if you want the HVAC knobs in the picture below. (The 05 RS has knobs like the 04s.) STi owners will also have to move their DCCD switches and relocate their power mirror control switch to the armrest on the driver's side door.

    This conversion might be on the pricey side, but if Subaru decided to use the same mounting holes it might not be too bad. If somebody does go through with it and everything does work out I may be tempted to try it myself.

    Hmm...good idea. I forgot about that. If everything lines up, it should make things ALOT easier.
