My hatch was a 2010 with the free PPP upgrade or 330R as they were termed. Needed the key to start it.

Aha thanks. You didnít mess around moving to the newer model

Was it just the PPP the 330r got over standard or different wheels as well?

Same 18" five spoke alloys as 330S, in fact external appearance identical to 330S. For a car with a £4k premium over the standard Sti, I'm surprised that the 330S didn't have front fogs and splitter fitted as standard.

Yeah, agree about the fogs and splitter, but with the 330S don't forget the interior and the touch screen head unit

A case of "drive it like you stole it".

Not exactly a "blown engine" (intercooler hose popped) but hey "have you got some beers".

Looks as if they de-activated one or both front air bags as well (orange alarm light on dash next to clock - US model)

I fancy that black Zunsport lower grill that some have fitted to plug that big gaping hole in the front of the car. Is there any drilling involved during fitting and does the front bumper need to come off ? Also, how long does the job take ?

I do like the MY11 cars but why did they fit that horrid looking radio, they could have at least fitted the JDM surround to try and make it look a little OE rather than an ebay spacer!

What they should have done was fit the same head unit that the 330S has

3 small holes in the lower edge to accept pins fitted to the grille.
top held in with attached spring type clips for ease of removal if tow eye required

About half an hour as long as you measure correctly.

The "Horrid looking radio" is the FREE Pioneer 320BT sat nav upgrade, part of the 320R package.

The Filler piece is part of the Subaru/Pioneer fitting kit

The OEM radio fits the surround correctly as its an oversize double DIN.

Thanks, Don. So I can expect my local garage to charge me no more than one hours labour. I don't trust myself with a drill.

The JDM panel is the same as the OE UK one though but with a narrower hole to accept a standard size double din unit, looks much nicer that the Subaru/Pioneer fitting kit and for the price of a UK STI should be standard. It's not that expensive for us to order from Japan so must be even less for IM!

As have been mentioned the upgrade was Free and most wanted the power upgrade.

If the surround filler is fitted correctly, it's hardly noticeable (I even sprayed my original to match the A/V panel's shade of matt black)


Importing the A/V panel (on an individual basis) costs just shy of £100 and admittedly looks much better.

Yes, a lot of us have upgraded further to the 920/930 BT

The 320BT has the removable sat nav screen so you can take it with you like a Tom Tom
