Default Pioneer AVH-X3800DAB head unit fitting problems

I've just bought the above head unit and fitted it fine in my 06 Wrx estate. When I've come to put the silver fascia surround on, the stereo is slightly too big for the hole in the fascia.....anyone else had this issue or know a resolution?

With the trim ring removed from the Pioneer radio the fascia should at least fit over the front lip.

Is it more of the case that the radio protrudes out too far for the fascia to fully clip home??

It's the bit that returns back towards the stereo.....the hole is slightly too small so the fascia doesnt clip all the way back.....
