Default 2015 WRX - Stereo Upgrade

Hello - I am going to be upgrading the factory stereo in my 2015 WRX limited.

The headunit I am looking at is Pioneer AVH-X4700BS.

Looking for help to confirm that I am ordering the correct installation parts. Below is what I have researched so far:

Dash Kit: Metra 95-8905B Double DIN - $12
Amazon.com : Metra 95-8905B Double DIN Dash Installation Kit for Select 2012-Up Subaru Impreza Vehicles (Black) : Vehicle Receiver Universal Mounting Kits : Car ElectronicsAmazon.com : Metra 95-8905B Double DIN Dash Installation Kit for Select 2012-Up Subaru Impreza Vehicles (Black) : Vehicle Receiver Universal Mounting Kits : Car Electronics


HU Harness: Metra 70-7552 - $8

Steering Wheel Control Adapter: Metra Axxess ASWC-1 - $50
Amazon.com : Metra Axxess ASWC-1 Universal Steering Wheel Control Interface : Vehicle Audio Video Accessories And Parts : Car ElectronicsAmazon.com : Metra Axxess ASWC-1 Universal Steering Wheel Control Interface : Vehicle Audio Video Accessories And Parts : Car Electronics


OEM USB Port Adapter: Metra Axxess AX-TOYUSB - $11
Amazon.com : Metra AX-TOYUSB-2 2010-Up Toyota USB Adaptor : Vehicle Audio Video Power Adapters : Car ElectronicsAmazon.com : Metra AX-TOYUSB-2 2010-Up Toyota USB Adaptor : Vehicle Audio Video Power Adapters : Car Electronics


Can anyone confirm if these are the correct parts? Or if there is something different I should be getting?

Also, is this easy enough to self-install or should I have a professional install? I was quoted $160 for install. I have not installed a headunit before.

Appreciate any help, thanks!

You have the right list of parts. The difference between using a harness like the metra is it does not include the wires for the steering wheel control adaptor.

Do you have any experience with wiring and taking apart a car? It's not a hard install if you have that experience. If not, I would have it installed. If your looking at having it installed, I would talk to the shop about purchasing it there. Shops I have dealt with before haven't charged extra for head unit install.

The video goes into entire system install, but does touch upon the radio install.

As for the install... it's up to you and what makes you feel most comfortable. If you feel uneasy about doing it yourself, then get a professional or buddy to install it.

Most will tell you it's not too hard. The trickiest part would be connecting the wires, but it's really not that bad. If you decide to do it yourself, perhaps look at buying the head unit through Crutchfield or another dealer with great customer service. You might pay a little bit more, but they will walk you through any issues you might run into.

Plus most guys who cruise the car audio section have done a ton of installs, so we can all help you out as well.

Good luck.
