you have to trim out the lip in your bezel to make it fit. the top and bottom have to be flush, and if i remember right the sides need a slight trim.


also the the install kit is a big help too.

You just have to trim the top of the radio opening a bit. I think its like 1/8" or something small like that. My plan was to install one but I never did.

Its the back of the radio opening, those little lips. I had to trim both top and bottom on mine. I have a install kit that I don't need if you want it.

I am looking into buying this same unit!
is the install kit necessary? If it is just needed for the trim between the deck and the bezel i can make something myself. I have a bunch of carbon fiber that is begging to find a place on my dash.

I have seen install kids at Walmart, Target, places like that. You could also get it from a local car audio shop.

Not at all, thats a pretty good deal. Unit cost me 650, the XM module cost me 80 and theres still 9 months of XM left on it so thats worth like 100 bucks.
