Hi, I live in the UK and have recently bought a 1999 Forester S/Turbo (Japanese import). Does the fact that it is an import affect how I convert it?

i.e. Can I use a facia adaptor and wiring harness for a UK spec Forester?

Any help greatly appreciated,

Tim.

Depends on what stereo is installed. Mine had a crap alpine unit and I think Steve Wonder had wired it in. I had to splice in a ISO wiring harness first but once in it connected to my new stereo - and any I could have chosen.

If the UK spec one is ISO and you have the right harness then yes, straight swap. Before you go chopping the wires though ask your local motor factors, or even - ahem! halfrauds, as they have convertors which will convert certain adaptors to iso.

Failing that get the wire cutters and soldering iron out. It shouldnt take long.
