I bought a 2018 Premium the other day. It's possible to swap the premium head unit for a limited head unit in the older generation Crosstreks, a simple plug and play, all compatible. Is it possible to do the same with the 2018?

On the website the center console looks to be similar size, but when I went to the dealership and asked, they said no.

I have a 2017 Impreza Premium and I'm in the middle of doing this exact upgrade.
I currently have the 6.5" HU and I bought the 8" HU from an owner of an Impreza sport.
I installed the 8" unit and it all fits fine, including the wiring.

Only problem, I can no longer control the volume or equalizer. I think this has to do with the Rockford Fosgate amp that I had installed as an upgrade earlier with the original HU.

The 8" units come with a Harmon Kardon amp, which is all proprietary.

I'm going to disconnect the amp from the wiring and see if it works.
