Default fold down rear seats?

Is it possible to swap in WRX fold down rear seats on a STI?

with enough money, anything is possible. But on a serious note, yes, it is possible. But why would you want to swap the beautiful interior of the STI with a mediocre (for lack of a better word) stock, WRX rear seat? Just curious.

You may be better with putting the Canadian STi rear seat in. that way it will match.

I don't belive the swap is possible.

a) the wrx sedan doesnt have fold down seats, only the wagon.
B) If the swap was possible it would have been widely done by now.

Nasioc member Hazdaz jerry-rigged together a foldable sedan rear seat. Shoot him a PM and see if its something that's doable in the STi.

I believe he's talking about the sedan pass through, that goes through the arm rest...

Yes, there is a non-lockable pass-through to the trunk in the rear seats.

We need it for our hockey sticks, eh?

Try this site: http://www.wrx-sti.ca/ under The Beauty --> Interior --> Rear Seats. The main Canadian Subaru site kinda sucks, so these micro-sites are quite useful.

P.S. Actually, one small reason that I never bought a 2.5 RS was the lack of a pass-thru for hockey sticks and skis. Maybe SOC got a lot of comments about this from other potential buyers :-).

Ok.. so the only fold down rear seats are on the WRX wagon, and the Canada STI has the little pass-thru hole.

Kinda sucks, because the trunk is pretty small, and sometimes I need a trunk big enough for 3 bodies. :-)
