    Your STi had a stock stereo? Mine just had a blank panel. Are you talking about R&Ring the head unit? That is relatively easy. Pull out the cup holder, undo the screws, and remove it. Then pry off the center surround. You can then see the 6 screws holding the DIN rack.

    Check out Cockpit and Cabin for a LOT more detail. The STi is just an Impreza inside.

    The STi does not come from the factory with a radio, or speakers...

    You *can* get a stock radio in an STI. Just a ~$750 to ~$1250 option depending on how "premium" you go.

    Anyone else actually seen one with a factory option stereo in it? Wonder how many of those came from the factory. Or is this maybe a dealer installed thing?

    It's a dealer thing. You can do much better in the after-market.

    pls help

    Is there a code for the stereo? for the 03 impreza wrx?

    Because i both my brother a car it’s a Volvo…when we remove the radio and then re-installed it, it was asking for a code. Now the reason im asking this is because I don’t want it happened to my WRX and i dont want to replace the system on my WRX I want to keep it the way it is. I just want to make sure and confirm before taking action.

    pls help..
