Default About indication in STI 2004

Hi !
I have bought in USA STI 2004 and have faced one problem. I live in Russia and it is difficult for me to understand indications of the gauge of external temperature in degrees F.
Tell, please, as it is possible to switch indicator to degrees C?

Thanks

Alexander

I bet if you swapped your gauge cluster for a Canadian version, you would get degrees C... this will be expensive compared to just learning the conversion.

I think, that replacements of the gauge cluster it is not required, as Subarus for the American and Canadian markets are practically identical. Indications of gauges are for certain switched by pressing the certain combination of keys. It is necessary to find out only what.
Whether it is possible to find out it from the Canadian dealer? European dealers Impreza STI with the engine of 2,5 litres at all did not see also the answer to this question do not know. The Canadian dealers should know as it to make. If someone can ask, I shall be extremely grateful because to drive with the calculator by such auto is very inconveniently.
Thanks
Alexander

Preliminary findings...

The outside air temp display recieves its signal from the ambient temp sensor which appears to be the same for Canada and the U.S. That signal is relayed to the "custom cpu" which controls the reading that appears on the display. Unfortunately the custom cpu is part of the printed circuit, which is different from Canada to the U.S. There is no procedure listed in either the owners manual or in the service manual to reprogram the display. Paul has made a call to Subaru Canada technical support to confirm, but it appears that there is no way to simply change the reading.

A cheaper way would be to remember the formula... C=(5/9)(F-32)... or you can just do what I do, remember some common F to C conversion.

Interesting you could buy a USDM STi and ship it to Moscow... about half the world away. Have fun with your STi.

I shall hope for the positive answer though chances have strongly decreased
