    2012 Subaru WRX

    Does anyone know what the two sensors or whatever they are called on the front pillars near the windscreen?

    I was told these are for the security system but cant find anything on them in the manual

    Could you take a picture of them possibly? I can't quite figure out what you are talking about.

    No idea. Mine does not have that. However, I have a base model. I can't imagine which of the features the more upscale models have that something like that would be part of.

    I have a 2011 & nothing like that in the car. I think the antenna for satellite radio is supposed to be somewhere under the A pillar. Maybe that?

    I thought satellite antennas went on the roof/exterior?

    Edit: To clarify, I mean that I thought the sat antenna is integrated into the roof antenna.

    I live in Australia so the models differ I believe it is the tweeter as i have the base model as well and it comes with standard 10 speaker system, so it is part of that, only thing I can think it is.

    It must be, but man that is a tiny tweeter! Quite the way to claim 10 speakers haha.

    Have you tried the Owners Manual? whats it look like in the dark park. is at a mesh or is it like an eye.

    if its a tweeter then it has to be a subwoofer. lol

    I have a 2012 STi and I don't have that. However I think that is maybe a Mic of some sorts. Seems a bit too small to be a tweeter.

    I have never seen that before.
