In the next month or so i will be purchasing a Double Din HU to replace the stpck unit in my 2012 and have decided that i like the JDM bezel the best. Where is the best place to purchase it?

All JDM parts are going to be far more expensive than their USDM counterparts.....just a heads up.

Japanparts.com That is about $78.50 plus shipping

Did you think about just painting or wrapping the existing one? I painted mine black.

I'm wanting to put in a pioneer 4300 double din. Don't you have to get a dash kit for it to fit? And I thought jdm made one cuz I remember seeing one and iwas real clean and no gaps or anything

I'm not familiar with the dimensions of that particular aftermarket head unit (nor should I be, since I'm not the one buying it), but I'm pretty sure the dash kits (sold separately) are customized to the stock vehicle bezel and provide adjustments for that bezel.

Unless the head unit you are getting it oddly shaped, it *should* fit in the stock shroud like a stock unit does....a 2-din/double-din opening is an industry standard size. The Impreza factory units are easily swapped with after-market units....this is not like a GM or Ford factory unit that requires a bunch of stuff to make an aftermarket unit fit and look decent. Generally, the only reason to change the bezel is either

A) you want to change the color to the JDM one
B) you broke the stock one
C) you want to add the one with gauge pods in the vents.

Thanks, man. This one was exhausting my patience today.

2008-up Impreza and 2009-up Forester OEM HUs are non-standard size. Unlike previous years, the opening is larger than standard double-DIN. So when you install an aftermarket HU, there will be 1/2" gaps on the left and right sides.

See this post. For 2012 Impreza (not WRX or STI) see additional notes and link in that post.
