Good luck finding them.

They are still pretty expensive for used ones.

Unless you rallyX, IMO, they are overkill for DD. Check out Tire Rack for some 15" for '12+ Impreza 2.0i & they should fit '08-'11 Impreza 2.5i as well.

The ej's are all swappable. 2.5, 2.2, 2.0. I was just bored and thought I would ask. If not our older cars than maybe at least the 2013 sport impreza? That would be cool.

I couldn't say for 100% certainty but it looks like a direct fit but, would need the right pulley for low boost and the best of the best to tune your car for the set up because their are very few that can handle the MAP sensor on 2.5i's.

Thought i would ask. I would like to do rallyx so it would be good to have them and if there are good winter tires to go along, then its at least my winter set.

And a quick search and little thought found me this:

I thought it still required slight modification's to the mounting points?
Just go for it then

Haha I don't have that kind of cash to waste. $3200 is a bit steep. I just think its funny how people have been modding root style superchargers for years, but as soon as the brz comes out they start with main stream, off the shelf chargers. No ones looking out for the lonely 2.5i guy.

There is a gear and parking break check. It's got to be in neutral and the parking brake on.

Selling cars I've delt with a few different installs... I've seen relays that check the brake and shifter automatically. Also have seen where you have to hit a switch for it to work when getting out of car and the switch is suppose to make you remember to check the shifter and brake or it's going lol.

there is also the style in which it requires you to take the car out of gear and put the parking break on then get out and lock it with the remote(so it knows your not in the car) then it shuts off and you can remote start it when you'd like

Edit: someone below mentioned the factory 6-disk with aux my car came with one. If it's what you want I'll let it go.
That's an amazing deal. Sigh ... busy few days, haven't had time to look at this stuff yet. What are you asking?

I'd be interested to check out how you did it, for sure. Though this time around I'll probably go used. I don't know about the newer 2012-13 models or anything, but the audio shop guy said he doesn't even sell 6-CDs anymore, which is where that information is coming from ... you can only get a 1-CD w/ipod or aux new, apparently? Made me feel old, as few things have. So yeah, used looks like the way to go.
