Yes ive had this done before, but mine was custom built from fiber glass. But it wasn't bad for a while because it was something different then the others. But unfortunely sum1 broke into my car and stole the whole piece. :irate: I think the metra dash kit is much better, but its up to u man. Goodluck with it... :yesnod:

they look terrible and you have to cut into your A/C ducts

It looks like it might protrude outward enough that you wouldn't have to cut the ducts. I remember when JettaJet put a head unit all the way back into that pocket, he said he had to cut the ducts, but I'm not sure that you'd need to with this piece. It doesn't look all that great though.

yeah dude just go with the metra kit, only $60 bucks extra. With that thing you would have two decks in the car. the factory HU would be useless if you got an aftermarket HU. I got the metra myself with the pioneer AVH P5700. IT LOOKS SWEET!! Plus i want the top tray for the three pod piece. Metra all the way! :yesnod:

Yea he is right, you should go with metra, no use in keeping the stock HU there...its a waste of space. You should do the three gauge pods up there. I just ordered my pod, now i gotta get the gauges for it. Can't wait to get them put in and cruise... :drive:

Doing this also throws your chance of a breakin or something much higher, since your new deck will be in plain sight for everyone to see through the front window even. Get the metra kit, it will look much better and you still retain the use of the top pocket, or like others you can get the gauge pod.

Yes thats right, i did that once before the metra kit came out...it was fine for about a year or so but then sum fuckers broke into my car and stole that bitch, lol. It sucked ass, but insurence covered it so it wasnt too bad i guess, but had to fork out 100 bucks for retinting...
