Default Fitting aftermarket head unit

Hi All,
Hopefully this is a quick question.
I am looking at buying a Pioneer SPH-DA130DAB head unit for my '04 UK Impreza STi and the guy in Halfords is particularly useless!
I know I need a DAB areal, what else is required to fit this? Do I need a specific fitting kit or fascia?
Thanks for the advice and have a great day!

Hi I installed one of these a couple of years ago. Not sure how to post a link to the previous post (Attempt below)

This was a really easy install, carefully removed the existing facia, 4 screws locate the existing head unit.

Swap the brackets from the old one to the new one and It is ready to install. I attached the GPS sensor above the unit under the dash and put the green wire to earth.

I removed the black plastic facia from the pioneer unit and it fitted without anything else.

Also used the Subaru adaptor as mentioned in previous post and it required no modification.

Best of luck it should fit easily. This unit has given me no issues at all and gave the interior a real facelift.
