I believe it is the main harness that connects directly to back of the radio based on what I have been told. In other words, you can't just slap a 2019 HK unit in a 2015 - 2018 vehicle because it won't hook up. Also, the 2019 HK unit features a CAN controller for the volume going to the factory HK amp by sending a fixed signal to the inputs then using a separate mechanism to control the volume.

I guess I get what I deserve for thinking that it would be easy to just replace the HK system in the 2019 if I didn't like it.

I dug through the 2018 and 2018 service manuals, looks like all important connections and pinouts are the same.
So last week I (attempted) to pull the trigger on the 86471VA610 radio. It looks like 86471VA610 is for the WRX and 86471VA710 is for the STI. My guess would be something to do with the single vs dual zone climate controls?

Anyways Subaru Parts Warehouse was running a 30% off sale so it brought the radio down to $1200 and change. Well they got back to me and said that the radio could only be ordered by the dealer's service department as a warranty replacement... I did call another Subi dealer to make sure they were not selling me a story and they confirmed the same.

So it looks like for now the Parts counter isn't an option for these, back to hoping someone wants to sell one used.

I'd rather have the Alpine Halo 9. In fact, I'm still waiting on AutoHarnessHouse to get back to me so I can yank the HK unit out of my 2019... I have one friend who grew tired of waiting and just cut the factory plugs in his 2019 STI that came with the HK system... I, OTOH, would like the ability to return to stock easily...

I know it sounds nuts but I hate the look of aftermarket radios. They never look right to me and takes away from the interior. I'll gladly pay a premium for an insanely clean cabin.

I hear you--keep an eye on the classifieds and ebay. Im sure people are listing them for sale in favor of an aftermarket unit.
