Thanks for the tutorial, I think I am going to do that sometime next year. I am very OCD too, but $600... I think I'd putty that gap, and vinyl wrap it. Probably the 3M alum and the black one.

Ya DAMD should be easier man, don't need to swap out the controls
You still need to swap out the controls, but I swapped directly with a forum members wheel who already did the swap.

One thing we messed up was that we didn't look his xt has eyesight so I have an extra button now and he is missing one.

Not that all wheels may be manufactured the exact same, but curious if the splines for the wheel lined up the same as your FXT wheel? Is your wheel centered the same as it was with the stock wheel? I just had an alignment re-done and it's perfect now. I'd hate to have to go back again if the new wheel is off at all, but I will heheheeeee. I should be doing this next week and have the parts now. Thank you again for all the great info.

I read these threads even if I am not going to do it myself like learning something new like with stepping on the brakes to make sure their is no residual electrical current in the system did not know this. Surprised this is not under the DIY section.

See my post above, and yes the only difference is the perforated grip section.

Don't get the lower cover unless you're swapping airbags, it's not needed

The "lower cover" pn's I posted are actually the rear section cover (as you probably already know.)

What I'd like to do is try and retain my OE rear (lower, as termed by Subaru) cover. I don't have the 3 section info button array like you all do. If I order a new WRX rear cover, that will leave a gaping hole. Not what I want..

So I may just order the Sti wheel and see what I can do to get my OE rear cover to fit. It's certainly worth a shot..

Yeah subaru is weird with all the naming. As long as it's not over $15,then you got the right part...

The OE cover will fit but at the bottom spoke, it won't be long enough and there will be a gap about 1" from the plastic piece to the bottom of the wheel.
