Yes but less wear, different stiching and airbag trim.

the back of your wrx wheel can be swapped onto the jdm wheel to retain cruise control.

It is slightly smaller in diameter, and the grip is a little thinner. Feels a bit lighter.

The trickiest part was the wiring and getting the airbag light to go off. My buddy who gave it to me has a bunch of airbag charges so we used an RS charge. It is the same as the V7 charge. Usually the charges are removed when the wheel is imported.

All you gotta do is bolt in the RS charge and test the positive and negative wires that go the charge. I cut the pigtail wires and soldered it to my stock airbag harness plug. If the airbag light stays on then swap the two wires. It's important to have a good connection. The charge pigtail has to fit snugly against the charge pins.

I swapped over my stock cruise control stalk.

My two cars in the canyons! It was an awesome day to be driving my Bugeye with my Supercharged G in the rearview with my best friend behind the wheel! He and his new wife were on a layover in town on their way to Australia for their honeymoon, so they had a few hours to kill. I thought, "Well, I have two track prepped cars, let's go rip up the canyons!"

Thank you! They're eBay housings with morimoto projectors and switchbacks. The fogs are morimoto led 100mm housings.

This is while I still had an incandescent turn signal-

Doing the prep work for a Color change. Decided the car should be lower. I think I reached the perfect stance for my car

Fenders have been rolled flat and a very slight pull just in case.

That was me! Good recall.

Hint: House of Kolors 4 stage paint!

Isn't that the truth. I will never replicate all the work I've done to my Subie with any other car. It's just too much!
