07 WRX to STi dash swap
« on: September 16, 2012, 06:04:34 PM »
Hey all.
So, I came across someone online who wants to sell me his STi dash off an 06 for $125. My question is:
I love the light up displays the STis have. To do the swag, do I need the WHOLE dash? Like, plastic and all? Or, can I just pop out my 3 little dash pods and pop in the STi dashpod? I'm not sure if it's just as easy as plug and play or not.

Thanks a lot!

Damn. I guess the key word I missed out of my searches was "cluster." Thanks a lot, Jaz. Does anyone have any experience doing this and can assist a bit in what exactly their talking about? I get the jist of it, however some of the wiring terms leave me a bit confused.

Light did this to his WRX a year or two ago. Not sure if he has a thread on here about it or not.

So. Much. Win.
Thanks for that, Kevin.
I can install parts, thats the easy thing. However, I'm almost clueless as to wiring things. It's that bad.
