    Post pictures of the car. I actually admire the 08 WRX. I heard it was a 5 door and thought it must look terrible. I saw one today for the first time and was really impressed. The body is amazing. They did good with this new body style. Havent seen the sedan version yet.

    I've made some progress on my 08 WRX install if you want to take a look. It's up and running already, but the computer's just a big mess in the trunk for now. I'm really happy with how the monitor and front panel came out, though.

    I'm interested in installing a touchscreen in a 2008 Impreza as well. Unfortunately, I don't work at a machine shop, so this custom solution is a bit out of my league. After lots of googling, I still have many questions before I embark on this.

    1) The slot in the 2008 Impreza measures 4" x 8". The Lilliput EBY-701 is 4.5" x 7.75". Is the actual screen only 4" high, such that I could install this and not be missing 1/2" of screen real estate? What about the width difference of 1/4"? There's a kit for sale on mp3car.com, but that appears to be for older model imprezas.

    2) Would some other display fit better than the Lilliput EBY-701?

    3) Does any company sell a custom bezel for a 2008 Impreza that turns it into a standard-size double-din slot, if there are no solutions that will just fit the 08 Impreza slot without custom modifications?

    4) Assuming I can find something that generally fits in the Impreza's slot, or a bezel to make it look like it fits, does anyone have experience mounting a touchscreen in an '08 Impreza? Anything I should look out for in advance?

    Thanks!
