Default Double din Subaru multifunction stereos

Did the 03 foresters come with the double din multifunction stereos as an option like in the new ones ?
Any info would be great
Cheers Scott

Thats what I am aiming for in my car, in my wife's car she has a double din Kenwood unit that has GPS, Bluetooth handsfree, DVD, Ipod conectivity and so on, it is one of the most functional units I have ever used. I am hoping to upgrade the stereo in my car and was wondering and was hoping that the the consumption option was avaliable.
Its nice having everything in the one unit without seperate screens all over the dashboard.

im sure you could buy one either from a wreck or from subaru but i would say a after market unit would be far cheaper

Not as fancy, but there are relatively cheap options such as the ScanGauge that plug right into the OBDII to provide that information. That's what I got (200$ or less depending on the kit, new or used, etc).

There's also a Bluetooth OBDII adapter that allows you to get the data on your smartphone/tablet/laptop, so it's much more expansible as there are many apps on most platforms. (That is, assuming you have OBDII, I know it's not standardized as much in AUS as it is here...)
