    rkrenicki's 2013 GP7 Impreza Sport - 2020-11-23 Wife's New(ish) Car!

    Today, we picked up a new 2013 Impreza Sport for my Wife. This is my Wife's car, so not a whole lot will be done to it.. but I do have a handful of mods to do to it.

    I managed to get the radio installed today, and I tested out the new cluster. I need to wait about 6000 miles before I can swap it, but it does work perfectly.

    First, the radio: It is a bit of a tight fit with all of the car integration stuff back in the dash.. but I did get it all installed. I need to do some research on the wiring for the camera before I can get that done.

    And here is the VA chassis WRX cluster that I test fitted. I need to disable the headlight leveler lights, but otherwise it pairs up properly with the car. It will be a nice upgrade once the mileage comes around.

    I added a few things to the list.

    I have a couple of "High Function Display" modules from various Imprezas and Foresters.. I think I will end up going with the US SJ Forester version does not have the HVAC LCD, but I will see which one cooperates the best with the car once I make the harness. I cannot finalize the installation until after some selector switches arrive from Japan which will not be here until February.

    Same thing with the Auto-Up/Down switches which are in the same package. I may need to do some repinning to make them work, but the Japanese BMM Legacy B4 switch modules should drop in on both the Impreza and the Forester.

    I finally put all of the Subarus in a row today. Finding a time when all of them are home during the daylight is not the easiest thing in the world.

    About a month ago. I have a thread for her car, although it is not very long. We have not decided what to name the car yet, so it still has boring license plates.

    I moved this over to her thread. We do not know yet.. no name has really resonated yet, but she absolutely wants to change the plate.
