Create an incredible 10.1" in-dash experience in your 05-07 Subaru WRX STI

NOTE: We currently don't have a solution for Climate Control for the 05-07 WRX/STI. It will be offered as an upgrade once it's ready.

Kits are manufactured on-demand. Workshop 12 manufactures some components in-house and also outsources printing of the driver exposed plastics to Shapeways. Shapeways typically has a 3-4 week turn around time from when an order is placed until the plastics are ready to be returned to Workshop 12. (See: Shipping Lead Times)

Introducing MK2

We've been listening to lots of feedback since our MK1 version and have now produced a more affordable version. MK2 provides additional design updates complete with a sturdy magnetic face plate that allows for easy access to the tablet installed in your dashboard.

Supported Tablets

The Brainiac MK2 plastics for the 05-07 Subaru WRX/STI have been designed to securely hold a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1" tablet in your dashboard creating a sleek factory integrated look.

This tablet is not included in the kit.
Compatible models were introduced in 2019: T510 (Wi-Fi only), T515/T517 (LTE/Wi-Fi)

Layer the OEM pieces of your dashboard together with the Brainiac plastics for an incredible fit!
Installing MK1.7 Electronics

The MK1.7 Electronics have been designed to be a plug-and-play kit for providing power, audio and USB accessory for your tablet installation.

Simply unplug your OEM stereo, and plug in the MK1.7 Electronics directly into your factory stereo harness.

Software Experience

Workshop 12 aims to tackle the most important items such as easy screen navigtion and media control.

Tailor your system's experience the way you want through multiple settings and expand your vehicle's integration with Brainiac accessory support.

Brainiac Version 3.8 is now available!


Plastics are manufactured in a durable suport material and exposed surfaces are printed in Nylon which is Heatproof to 163C/325F. Surfaces are unfinished and require sanding to prep for painting.
