Default 2012 Impreza BASE Model

Soooooo quick question for all my fellow FB20 family!

I have the base model. No features on my Steering wheel - however saw on youtube that the base model is already equipped with cruise control but doesn't have the steering wheel button.

If I picked up a steering wheel with the buttons for cruise, radio and BT > do you think the buttons/features will work? Because I'm lookin to pick up one of the Forester HD radios as well. The BT one with the screen.

Or will I be wasting my time?

If you have an aftermarket stereo, you're going to need a special adapter for the steering wheel controls. If you have the stock radio, I'm not sure if it will work or not.

But then again, if that were true, I suppose the controms wouldn't work with the special adapter meant for aftermarket head units. You might have to try and tell us, not sure if anyone knows for sure.

Will definitely try and keep you guys posted on the results.

Looking to also swap out the stock HU with a '12 forester HU. The HD one with the 4.3 screen that's BT compatible.

So it most likely will work with the steering wheel swap.
