thanks for posting!
what did the dash kit cost?
also, how is the H/U mounted? i'm assuming the CDM/JDM kit has a bracket that connects to the H/U. is it metal or plastic? This may be good info to have in the opening post
Thanks guys it looks and works well thanks to your info - haha
I can't belive the difference in sound quality overall. I also adjusted my OEM under seat sub's gain setting up to about 75% of max. It was set to about 35% of max from the dealer - I may want to adjust it back down to 50 or 60% though- still tweaking it)
Together with the new HU it made a huge difference!
This is the part number that matches the 2012 wrx exactly:
It was $69.80 shipped from http://www.subarugenuineparts.com
I *think* you can find it a little cheaper but I have been happy with this vendor on previous purchases.
EDIT: Sorry I meant to add that the trim piece is just the trim piece...no brackets. The old trim piece pulls off, and the new one snaps back on in it's place. I just removed the OEM brackets that were on the stock HU and re-used them to mount the Pioneer.
