The car is a 2004 STi
Front seats are 2004 stock STi seats with a Katzkin leather kit.
Rear seats are 2006 stock WRX seats with a Katzkin leather kit.
Carpet is 2006 stock WRX
Door panels are 2006 stock WRX Limited leather
Steering wheel/air bag/shifter knob are 2006 stock STi
Center console is 2006 stock STi
Shifter trim is STi S204 "type"
Leather boots are from Redline Automotive
And everything works

Thanks to Jamie from SubaruGenuineParts.com for her help!


--- 2004 STi to 2006 STi/WRX interior swap---

Cliff notes on the install (from memory):

Re-use all of the 2004 switches except the mirror control

Use 2005/2006 brackets on everything except the rear console mount

Steering wheel and air bag:
- direct swap
- electrical connections are plug and play

WRX rear seats:
- direct swap

Front door panels:
- use 2005/2006 handle brackets
- use 2005/2006 mirror control
- move tweeter mount and rotate
- trim tab on passenger side window/lock switch
- electrical connections are plug and play, except
- mirror control wiring needs to be run from console to drivers door

Rear door panels:
- use 2005/2006 handle brackets
- move rear screw/clip mount
- trim tab on window switches
- electrical connections are plug and play

Console:
- use 2005/2006 brackets, except
- use 2004 rear bracket and grind to clear the parking brake cable
- small notch to fit the 2004 DCCD roller switch
- electrical connections are plug and play

Climate controls:
- direct swap
- electrical connections are plug and play

Price:
- depends on how much you swap, trade, sell, and spend on new parts

I'm sure I left something out, but that's pretty much it.

Note: This is a STi to STi conversion, a WRX will probably have differences that I'm not aware of (climate control, cruise control, etc).
