Buy the Scosche model
on March 13, 2014
The front bezel of this unit protrudes about 1/2" further than the OEM deck sat. This causes an aftermarket head unit to sit almost 5/8" out from the dash and, if similar to my case, interferes with a basic coffee travel tumbler sitting in the pull out cup holder just below the head unit. The manufacturer also includes multiple types of mounting hardware, two square neck pan head carriage bolts, two threaded nuts, two small flat topped studs, and two push on retainers. Installation instructions for most vehicles they tell you to use the small studs and the threaded nuts. While the nuts thread on the studs correctly, the head of the stud pulls right through the plastic it is meant to hold together. I decided that I would just use the larger headed carriage bolts, but these were too long and stuck out both sides of the kit which prevented it from mounting squarely in the dash. Quick thinking me, I just hit my bench grinder and took a few mm off each bolt, but this was a miss on the QA team at Metra for sure. Overall, holds the head unit in place. Would I ever try to save a buck and use Metra over Scosche again? Nope.
