    Yes I did a complete install.New wiring,new speakers,amp,,sub,sound processor,the works.

    I didn't find any guides to do the wiring.Its a simple job,you just have to get everything you need.I did start a thread about my install.

    I'll add pics to it tomorrow.

    Bulb specifications for your 2011

    Dome light - DE3175
    Fog/Driving light- 9006
    Front sidemarker- 1157A
    Front turn signal- 1157A
    License plate- 168
    Map light - DE3175
    Parking light- 1157A
    Rear sidemarker- 168
    Rear turn signal- [992(7440A)]
    Trunk/Cargo area-2825
    Just a heads up to anyone ordering reverse lights, I ordered LED bulbs size 7440 and they are too big. I then did a little bit more research and found a site with all the bulb sizes for the 2011 and for the backup light they say 7440 or the 921. Not sure if the 7440 fits the sti maybe? But it is way to big for the wrx backup light.

    There are some DIY threads on the topic.Haven't done it personally but the basic idea is to use a stencil to paint in the logo.

    The link below is how to paint the STI logo.Same would apply for the WRX ,obviously with a WRX stencil.

    How exactly do you drain the old oil?

    As in any other oil change.

    Let the car run for a few minutes.

    Remove the drain plug.
