I got an 07 2.5i sedan and was wondering if the brackets are identical to WRX sedan or Sti.
I daily drive and quite a bit of several hour trips and my back aches and my butt is sore because the fabric feels really hard and I just got coils.
Two questions:
1. Are WRX/Sti and 2.5i seats interchangeable and 2. What are some recommendations for decent aftermarket seats?
I don't track or autocross my car, I just want more comfy seats that still will grip me when I'm 100% driving the speed limit through mountain roads.
1. seats interchangable between most. iirc they started adding side airbags to either the 05 or 06 onwards imprezas.so keep in mind the connectors needed.
2. can't help you there as i don't have aftermarket seats. most of them would be geared towards racing so it might be lower than the stock 2/5i/wrx/sti seats.

as for comfy seats, try some v7 sti seats or older version where you can see the contours for your legs. the same year 2006-2007 sti or wrx seats are almost the exact same in terms of the side bolsters and the seat.

the 06-07 wrx is the same fabric as the 2.5i but you get the sportier headrest style as the STI.

The STi seats has alcantara suede which feels nice but doesnt change the bolsters in any meaningful way. the suede does keep you in the seat better though.

2004 wrx


the seats should swap, as they are the same chassis, and the mounts are attached to the seat. people swap wrx and sti all the time. 2. I got a pair of Braum seats, they have different models and different cloth and leatherette materials. They are decently priced, come in pairs, and what separates them from other lesser cost seats is that they are TUV approved. The reason i bought them was the stock 04 wrx seats were too small for me (long legs) and the seats wouldn't lower far enough. They come with seat rails, but you need seat brackets to mount them to the car. I bought Planted Technologies brackets. Recaro's are awesome but are expensive.

Default 2006 Impreza RS wagon seats into 2002 Impreza obs

Hi all,

I'm interested in putting 2006 Impreza RS wagon seats into my 2002 obs. I have read this entire thread and searched the forums and am still unclear.

My understanding is:

2002-2007 front seats are interchangeable.

2006 into 2002?

Thanks for any clarification.

Sorry, that second part was meant to be:

"2006 rear seats into 2002?"
Thanks again

search FIRST, then PM!!!


If I recall the seat brackets changed for the GD chassis in 06/07, so an 05 wouldn't even fit into them.

Iím parting out the interior of my 2002 outback sedan and someone is wondering if the leather seats will fit in a 2003 WRX? Does anyone know if they bolt right in? Front and rear or just the front?

They changed in 08 - anything 01-07 is interchangeable but 06/07 had side impact airbags so keep that in mind if putting an older interior in a hawkeye.

Hi all. I am helping a friend with his 2013 impreza daily driver. No, frils, nothing special. However the back rest is falling apart.
What is compatible? The local yard has only 2004 - 2011 imprezas? What else can I grab an entire seat from or failing that, what back rests are compatible. Thanks
