Single Din Top Dash Kit

I bought one off of Ebay. Only took a week to arrive. Pics are posted. I absolutely love it.

That doesn't look bad at all. Any complicated install work or anything i should be weary of?

No idea. That's why I have installers.

fit is not that bad--with a little work it may turn out very well.

It fits very well and made by almost the same plastic as the console. I had only to modify it in the back, to apply the center speaker cover (this console is not for BOSE systems). Soz for the dark image.

That looks decent. I have debated and debated about getting one of those.

I should mold one off of an extra top center piece that I have. Since it isn't set up for Bose, hmmm not sure if I would use the Bose if I installed one of these. Pull all the speakers and install my own audio. That is what I should do. Different story if it is for Nav though.

i like all these dash kit options and soem are pretty good looking but i think this would look a lot better if the stereo location was set back more to follow the contour of the dash. yeah it does look good but a little flat for our pretty dsah.

no if you were to have the Bose in your car but if you don't use the center speaker can the kit still fit? or is there some sort of space requirement that having the center speaker would limit?

As far as I read, most people just cut the kit to fit that speaker. Its not that hard to do, you just need a dremel. but if you take that speaker out you would be alright too, but why would you want to lose a speaker?

I have already replaced all my speakers and removed all three Bose amps and, as a result, no longer have that center channel working anyway. so i really wouldn't care if I had to take it out.
