the problems with double dins is not fitment but mounting. it has to be iso mounted which is kindof a pain but worth it. double dins look ten times better than flip outs. if you can post a pic of your dash i can probably walk you through it.

i knowin my 3 gen it fits perfect with "custom" mounting. basically drilling out ohter mounting brackets that allow bolting to dash mounting brackets. some cars you may have to sharpen the edges of dash around radio to get it in but other wise its not to bad but well worth the trouble. just out of couriosity what kind of double din did you get?

i did ALOT of looking around for double din's did info on each unit with every brand then i came to this power acoustik one i likes the way it looks and it really has nice things that the good name brand ones dont have. most double dins dont detach and this is a bad thing for me because i park on the not so nice streets of new york queens aka "killa Queenz the home of rap" lol ok so anyway this double din is just like the single dins dvd's with the pop out screen so it looks like there is nothing even there when the system is turned off. another thing i like is the bluetooth i can check my missed calls make calls it even gets my whole phone book in there most systems have it pretty use full oh and best of all the sd card im very happy about this cause i dont ever have to burn another cd again all i need is a 16gig sd card =D

Hey 4genpurpleprelude how do you like your Pioneer F900BT? I've read a lot of poor reviews about it when it first came out but some good ones after the latest firmware update.

Just picked up a monitor for my car. I was really looking into the double din's cause they look so clean but i found a flipscreen for cheap. Its a Pioneer AVH-P5000DVD and so far it is working really good. I had alot of issues installing it(all wiring related) but now it is working really good and i'm glad i got it. It just looks like a normal deck when the monitor isnt open and i can still have that little space ontop (had to flip my dash kit upside down and modify it to fit) Heres a picture :



Yes my car is dirty, It is clean now :)

Think the F900BT is ok but it takes forever to start up. But I haven't installed the latest update tho, think that's supposed to help on that end. Otherwise it's pretty cool:)
Mine just got sent to service because of some internal earth probs(I think) just like I've had on most of my pioneer decks over the years:(
