I bought an Xtrons its spot on except their is no volume round button which is a bit of a pain. Great for apps like Torque for fault codes etc. I kept my Bose and I made a holder for the 2 USB inputs I put between the heated seats. I bought the tyre pressure valves that fit inside the tyres but they don't fit Porsche wheels. Actually great head unit very adaptable and cheap no complaints especially as I normally am a Pioneer person.

From the pics, it looks like that metra fascia kit doesn't have the lip at the lower/upper edge which some of the others do.

Please can you confirm if this is the case, & which retailer you ordered yours from?

Hi
I would be very interested in this as well since I have the Connects2 one and have been looking for another without the lip. From the link, it looks as if I would have to register with Metra first before ordering from their Florida based store?

many thanks in advance

If you are going from factory single DIN to double DIN, then I believe that you'll need to cut some metalwork out inside the dash. This put me off Sad

Hi,
I'm not sure that any metal has to be cut TBH Question It was a long time ago that I put the AVIC in mine but I think that it was just a black piece of plastic that created the horizontal divide between the previous single DIN rubbish and HVAC controller

The plastic cross bar needs chopping out and the sides also cutting out. Could easily be done with a hacksaw blade. I suggest you remove the whole facia and do it off line.

It's not Alex unfortunately but he does use a hacksaw
