Indash headunit

Tomorrow i pick up my new headunit but im still undecided. Im lookin at ether the D2 or the N3...

they are basically the same... except the N3 is a normal 'flip out' single din whereas the d2 is a double din...


I know some may say that the d2 will not fit.. but it will... i talked to an installer and i know what i have to cut out... but idk if i really want to cut stuff out...

anyways, what one should i get?

As far the single or double din, do you want it to look more factory than aftermarket? If so, I suggest the double-din. I have an Alpine double-din 6.5" touchscreen in mine & it looks sweet. All i had to do was file down the 1/4 inch tabs on top & bottom, & with the Metra kit(not sure what model #).

Id go with the N3, a lil more subtle to the passerby so not as showy until turned on
