Try an autoglass shop, they dont charge much for install, its the cost of glass thats expensive.

Edit: Disreguard everything below, I did not read correctly to see that you got it handled.

Never done it on a WRX but in general this is what you do:
1 Remove the door panel
2 Roll the window up and down until you can see the mounting bracket (normaly there is one position that you can get to the bolts through a cut out)
3 Slide the new glass in from the top
4 Screw the new glass to the bracket (2 or 3 botls maybe)
5 Test the window function
6 Replace door panel

Should not take to long and the second one will be faster once you know what to do.
