    New guy and my first Suburu

    Hey guys, just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Dan I live in NJ and I just picked up a 2014 WRX Premium hatch in WR blue. Im coming from a Hyundai Veloster Turbo most recently and a bunch of mustangs. Im looking forward to browsing and learning alot from you guys Im really outside my realm here with the AWD but im really enjoying the car so far. Going to try and keep it as stock as possible but I have a sickness that im sure alot of you are familiar with with so we will see how that goes. So far I ordered the extended armrest, planning on probably an SRI then a few cosmetic odds and ends then almost definitely a head unit. I need to do more research about what I get to keep factory wise I know the stereo buttons but as far as the bluetooth. Well here are a few of my past cars and the Subaru.



















    and the bikes

    Congrats! I just picked up my 2013 SWP WRX Limited Sedan a few weeks ago and I did a ton of research on the headunit replacement.

    You CAN keep everything but your one Handsfree speech button, but you can reassign it to a mute button for your aftermarket deck.

    I ended up with a Pioneer AVH-X5600BHS...has everything but NAV. I didn't want NAV because I use my phone with a dash/windshield mount and it's much better because you don't have to update maps and you can save $300+ on the initial cost of the deck.

    AE64.com (David Carter) explains everything on his website. Also make sure to get the AVOJDM 2 Din radio bezel replacement for a complete factory appearance.

    Good luck!

    I like the blue on the Hyundai, it makes it very aggressive, and I like the Kawa.
