I went to a local mitsu dealer and 2 of their RS's did not have speakers. This was early 05 when i went. I know early, early RS's did not have ac either, but 90% did. BTW i dont want to start an arguement on this. My friend has one, and it has a black solid button where my A/C button is, and i assure you it has none.

Ive seen/heard of evom that a stock speaker/headunit install on an RS is easy.

The RS does not come with speakers.
Also doesn't have; ABS, ACD, power windows, power door locks, no paneling in the trunk, and comes with minimal sound deadening matarial. :thumb:

All 05's have the ACD. Otherwise you are correct :)

from what my understanding is. the rs came to america without ac but with the jungle package where ac was an option. because just about everyone wanted ac in their cars, mitsubishi then put the ac back in at no extra charge. I had this argument with someone on evom. Not trying to start anything here, just maybe clearing up a misunderstood issue.
The RS did not come with speakers. I usually take mine out at the track. Hey every lb counts!
You can install a radio and speakers on the RS just like with the early STi's which came with no radios.
RS also does not come with the wing, nor a rear windshield wiper, or HIDs, 05s have an aluminum roof but the GSR suspension not the MR Bilstein suspension, RSs come with a 5spd like the GSR. RS's also only came in two colors red and white. RS's just like the 2g DSM RS's come with black door handles and black mirrors.
All 05s come with ACD

urban jungle package was a myth, straight from the mouth of a mitsu dealer/owner/modder/mod at evom

It's easy. All the wiring is there. Mine came with A/C standard. Here's the wire's (the white plug), but at I tucked out the way for an AFC and now gauges. The RS is loaded with spots for this stuff. :D
