Default Jealous of 05 Interior

so I, like many of you, are jealous of the 05 WRX interior(besides the steering wheel). Actually the cup holders don't bother me THAT much, I just like their center console way more(dunno if that's what it's called, that thing with the stereo, etc..) What can I do to make my center console(or whatever it's called) look better?

thanks

I can't imagine someone preferring the 04 interior to the 05. How is "too Legacy" a bad thing? I guess to each their own . . .

I love my 03 interior, with my 04 STi seats, carpet, and door card.

I prefer my MOMO steering wheel and the rest of the dash in MY04 vs. MY05. Yes, it looks a little nicer and a little sleeker, but it doesnt really fit the car too well. Sat in an 05 2 weeks ago and though that it definetely belonged in the legacy or forester.

The 04 interior just matches the car well IMO. I prefer the look of the new style seats, just need some STI ones now....

Well, 02-03's could update to the RS 05 interior (looks like same AC controls). new center console (shifter & elbow rest/bin), new center stack(where the radio mounts - check to see if it is mounted different at all). voila! 05 interior.

Default right...

but how do you even get hte part numbers online for the 05s? Subaruparts.com appears to only go up to 2003 for schematics for the oem impreza parts (interior replacement that is)...

i actualyl wanted to do this, but there is no schematic that I can find that details the parts and their numbers, since subaruparts.com only has schematics for 02-03.

My thoughts exactly...

The STi imho should not have the interior of a (wannabe) fancy car...

If you have been in an 05 Leg you will see what I mean... even the C6 corvette has a similar interior.

Its just not for me.

Default back on topic

so does anyone have the appropriate part numbers to do the 05 interior conversion? I know the 05 Rs has the same a/c stuff (it doesnt have climate control) so I guess if you want to upgrade from the 02-03 you need the RS center console part #'s, or is climate control not on the wrx just the sti? either way the RS part numbers for the 05 woudl be nice!

I'd be willing to bet it would cost at LEAST $500 (thinking more towards $1000) for the conversion. The auto climate control setup is very expensive.

When you figure it out let us know

My brother has an 02 wrx i just got my 05 two months ago. He got his 02 back in 01 when they first came here. His words after seeing my car " everything is just a little nicer."

Dead serious. In my opinion, the 02-04 interior looks very dated and even somewhat "ugly."

We have a '04 XT. The new interior is just what another poster said: a little nicer.

I agree, I think the 02-04 interior is more bull-doggish and fits the overlook styling of the car.. the 05 console stuff has horrible contrast with the rest of the car in my opinion.. I'm mixing and matching interior pieces to my liking..

That's why we grab the RS parts; they don't have the auto climate, so no AC conversion. subaruparts.com cost for the '02 version is ~$200 (IIRC), I can't see the '05 being much more. If someone wants to do this, they might actually have to go to a parts counter at the dealership and track down part #'s.

Yeah.. The dash just looks out of place to me...
Might look and work nice... but I dont think it fits the STi in general imho.

I'm sure I would like the function of it all, but I dont care for the finish.

I personally love my 04 interior, especially the wheel. I don't like the 3 spkoe wheel, not as comfortable. The 05 dash looks to fancy for my tastes. I do like the fact that there are two cupholders in the middle. The top cupholder was a waste of space in the 04 and under.
