    Bought the above car in June, and it came with the smaller radio. Looks to upgrade it, and finding a ton of radios on ebay, but for imprezas and other non-Crosstrek models. Just wondering (because they look the same), would I be able to take any of these radios from 2017+ and put it in my...

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Does anyone on this forum have experience replacing seats in a 2014-2016 model year Subaru Crosstrek? My 2016 currently has cloth seats and I was able to find a full set of leather seats from a 2014 salvage car for an absolute steal. I am very much considering making the purchase and doing the...
  5. Model Year 2018 and Newer HU removal

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Need help on pulling out HU. I have the 6"LCD. I see several members here have replaced theirs. I just need to pull mine out to add an amplifier.

  8. New Window Regulator - glass holding piece required

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    My passenger door window was broken last week. The regulator had to be replaced as well (poor design, hole at the top of motor where glass bits can fall in and lock it up) I found the part required, but the part doesn't come with the two brackets that actually hold the glass to the arm of the...

    Has anyone bought after market tires yet? I am thinking about getting better all season ones. Living in NH we have already gotten tons of snow so the need to be good in the snow. On my Impreza I had Yokohama Avid Ascends and was thinking about those or Envigor. Any experience with either of...

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    There are several threads regarding aftermarket HUs, but so far I've only seen one that actually gave a definite answer regarding the full details (Axxess - ASWC-1 paired with a Clarion NX630). But even that one did not declare explicitly any functionalities lost and/or retained. I am...
