As long as you have the LHD EDM electronics and LHD faceplate it will work.
Yeah I have the clone double din faceplate that guy in Russia sold on ebay. Can't get stuff from RU now lol. And by electronics I am guessing you mean already have the same type of climate control just usdm.

What information are you after? It's been awhile since I did mine but you need an i88 adapter https://tightfitfab.com/2005-2009-subaru-legacy-gt-outback-jdm-double-din-dual-zone-climate-control-i88-adapter/

possibly an i85 adapter https://tightfitfab.com/2005-2009-subaru-legacy-gt-outback-i85-adapter/

you'll need to trim plastic in order to reroute the hazard switch location

Understood, thanks.

Rt assassinationFigured I would update with my excellent results aside from just missing led illumination on the button backlighting for the climate controls.  I thought I read a solution in here for that and I'm wondering if it had something to do with the ribbon cable disconnected between the two circuit boards from the EU head unit?

Also my temp does show up in Fahrenheit not Celsius.  So that was a pleasant surprise. 

Probably the best option for double din I've seen aside from not painting the black faceplate trim thus far. 

To be specific, parts used:

Ebay Russian double din trim faceplate, tight fit fab's i88, i85, aux and radio adapters, and a EU left hand head unit with tI jhe separate climate controls along.   Swapped all the buttons and the lcd and plastic cover entirely from my old head unit transferred to this double din faceplate.  Lots of screws to be swapped in this process,  but managed to do it all cleanly. 

Notice the non reversed buttons.

I'm having an issue with getting the illumination to work. for the HVAC controls and on my head unit.

After following the instructions, are there any tips anyone can provide to get this to work? 

this was fixed with simply turning the headlights on. I don't remember that being required with the stock head unit but I guess it's good enough for now.

Perhaps read the text in on this page about illumination...

Thanks I'll check the next time the thing is opened up.   I think that they probably didn't connect that but I did leave that disclaimer note to them when they installed my head unit after I plugged all the harnesses in.   So hopefully it's not connected in a way that's damaged maybe just needs grounded.  And if anyone's wondering this is the DMX957XR model head unit.   It's nice because it has the gauge cluster screen when they install this with the correct maestro unit.
