Too flimsy for my liking
2013 Subaru Impreza WRX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought this as part of a kit to install a new Kenwood DDX9703S into my 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX since a standard double-DIN head unit leaves about a half inch gap on the left and right side in the dash. However, this piece is also used to mount the head unit to the car. The plastic side pieces, which attach to the head unit and to the car, are too flimsy for my liking. This flimsy-ness is made worse by details on this head unit: the screw attachment locations on the sides of the DDX9703S are recessed a bit, so since these pieces are plastic I couldn't tighten down the attachments enough without fears of damaging the plastic mounting pieces. I ended up not using this, instead swapping on the metallic mounting plates from the stock head unit, and purchasing a full trim piece made for this model Impreza that reduces the dash opening to a standard double-DIN size.
