Is the 2002 WRX stereo a strange size!!

Looking to change the standard stereo and have done them myself countless times on other cars, but the unit looks smaller than standard in Scooby. The height seems double din, but the width look narrower. Is it an optical illusion or am I going mad??!!

Do you mean change it for a different fascia altogether or take it out, put the new stereo in and refit the fascia. From measuring the hole, it appears a stereo would fit if the fascia bezel from a normal single DIN head unit wasnt used. But that wouldnt look right!!

As above, it should be standard double din, it's just a pain having to remove the trims.

I takes about 2 min 2 screws to remove cup holder then put you fingers in and pull the rest of the trim it's all in on push clips the hole lot comes out it's a little tricky putting the cup holder back in hope this helps
