Yet another piece of good info. An 06 AU Forrester with the 08 Paddles.
Only needed the paddles and the wiper stalk area to hold the shifters.
So maybe a possibility of just paddles on our 05-07 without having to replace the wheel and clockspring as well? I'm going to buy a wheel anyway for an 08 since my 05 has seen better days. But I will first try it out with an 05 wheel setup.
