A buddy of mine swapped the sliding door cupholder into his crosstrek and said it was plug and play. I've actually been thinking of trying this out myself. My '11 STI had it and I found it to be a much cleaner look and with the door closed, it's a perfect spot to put a cell phone.

OP, be the guinea pig and let us know!!

I found on SOA the fitments of the cup holders. It looks like it would fit but for some reason they left out the 2016 WRX models but I'm assuming that it will fit since they are the same models.
Here is the link where I found it.

Is that the only item you would need to make it fit? There is no other trim pieces needed? Like the edges? I'm willing to try it.

Thumbs up

It will work, however you would have to replace the whole center console with one from a Crosstrek or Impreza as the one we have in our WRX is molded in one piece with the cup holders. I have been thinking about doing this as well and stopped in at my dealer today to check for all the parts that I would require. There is a whole laundry list to make it work properly. Also you can't get a red stitched leather armrest in NA and would have to order it from Japan. If I go ahead with it I will share, but at this point I have to think about whether the cost is worth it to be the guinea pig .

Thanks gc8monkey for the input. I thought about switching the entire console buy I would lose the rear cup holders and it would cost too much to switch everything out. But ajsti24 (great documented build on your pure red sti btw) could be on to something here assuming the console box is the same we could just switch the top cover however, the sti cover looks have a bigger opening for the sport sharp switch
Vs


My question is, if I were to order the sti top cover, is the opening for the si drive switch open? Or is there a plastic cover/well?

The STi center top cover will be open, you can either make a custom cap/cover or order an SI drive switch/knob assembly.

Oh yes, you could just swap a STI top cover instead, but you would have a large hole there for the SI drive and center diff switch. Sorry about that. For myself I want to replicate the look of the console of the S4 and have the armrest extend as I find the one in my WRX is a bit low and far back.

Any update on someone trying this out. Still very curious but don't want to be the guinea pig this go-around.

Gc8monkey got any pics of your console set up just curious about the fit. Moreover, are you certain that the sti console cover would have a large hole and not a plastic well that removable?

Sorry but I don't have a pic of my console right now, it is just stock. I haven't changed anything yet as I am currently waiting for a part. As for the STI console cover, I am pretty sure it would fit as the main section is the same between the STI and the WRX and the only difference is the cupholder section. Keep in mind that the SI Drive area is just a hole for the switch and there is no plastic well piece available that I know of. As I am looking more at replacing the whole console, I haven't really looked at the STI swap. The one thing about any of these swaps is that the heated seat switch is different between the WRX and all other models. The WRX has two separate switches, whereas all the other models have both seat switches in one. This is what I am waiting on right now. I have to see if I can adapt the two separate connections for the heated seat switches on my WRX to the integrated single switch. I hope that makes sense. Once I have that solved, it is just a matter of me getting all the rest of the parts I need and installing them. I'll be sure to post pics when I am done if I go ahead with this. One thing is for sure though, this swap is so much easier with any other model

Someone did this mod here or on iwsti and I think they used a coin holder from an older forester to fill the gap. The heated seat switches also needed to be changed because they're a different size from the WRX ones.

This has been discussed before on here and other forums. Given Subaru's notorious ways to cut corners, you'll soon realize that they have been recycling the same center console (and lots of other parts) on their newer vehicles. Yes, the XV/Crosstrek is a plug n play for the cup holder (which is lame considering the WRX should have it standard). It is NOT for the WRX. You will need the STi center console panel in addition to the cupholder, should you choose to retain your WRX center console, but even then there will be modification required from what is mentioned in the threads. Here are some threads I have found to help:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2407200 (by cianuro. Discusses the similarities and differences between the 05-09 Legacy Console vs WRX/STi Console. He goes in depth with comparisons and explains the modifications required for the wrx console.)

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...2500563&page=3 (showcases legacy center console panel on a forester and DCCD panel mods)

http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/interi...ap-08-wrx.html (contains part numbers)

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...&postcount=991 (by NBRX. panels are customized and references part numbers.)

If anyone still looking at this, I did mine if anyone is still interested. I just did the console swap. You do need to do a little modification on the heated seats buttons. But it does fit. PM me you have questions. Or hit me up in an email [email protected], might be easier to contact me there. I can provide more pics too.

It shouldn't be difficult at all. Mine shows up Friday and I can post back after I install. I'm under the impression that all you need to do to make the heated seat buttons fit is to file down the hole where the STi buttons are now.

Install went well. I contemplated just buying all the OEM parts from Subaru, but I ended up getting a really good deal on a center console from a salvaged STI. Just had to swap in the AUX/USB port and heated seat buttons (had to file out the original hole a bit) from the WRX console, then everything was plug and play. Still have the S drive knob installed until I can find something to fill that hole with.

I know it's been a couple of years since you posted this, but I'm looking at swapping mine out. Have you since found anything to cover up/replace the DCCD?
