Default 2016 WRX Vent Bezel Issues!

The infamous WRX head unit issues have returned guys..

So i decided to upgrade my head unit on my 2016 WRX and I followed this guide: http://roflitsowens.blogspot.com/201...link-head.html

I have every single part that he mentions in there except I have a Pioneer head unit and the part number for the vent bezel he has, is wrong...

As far as the center bezel and vent bezel goes, the part numbers for those are #66065VA000 (the carbon fiber one) and #66065VA100, respectively.

The issue now is that when I try to put those together, when swapping over the vents from the stock vent bezel into the new one, the vents dont clip in. They use different clipping points and I am forced to stick with the stock vent bezel, which does not fit properly with the Carbon Fiber bezel I got (66065VA000).

So, I think my solution here is to buy 2015 WRX vents and swap those in and then I will be able to use all the new parts properly. My issue here is that I have not read absolutely anywhere that you need the 2015 WRX vents for the 2016 WRX when upgrading the head unit. Everybody is saying that you just need those 2 parts I mentioned above and everything will fit... they never mentioned anything about the vents not fitting.

Anyone have insight on this issue? It is driving me crazy. I have spent so much time and money trying to swap this head unit, and new things arise every time!

Default 2016 WRX Vent Bezel Issues!

Yeah the 2016 center vents have the silver boarder and the 2015's dont (I believe they are smaller vents). As far as I know, if you want to do the radio upgrade in the 2015 wrx or sti to the gcs apex android radio you will need to buy the 2016+ vents.. so if your vent bezel has the silver boarder then you will need the 2016+ vents if they don't have the boarder then you'll need the 2015 vents. Hope this helps!
