The first problem with fitting any standard double din to our cars is the DD fascia. The Chinese units are a perfect fit as they are designed for our cars - or the BMW E46. I had a really good quality BMW fascia but I sold it a few years back when I got my first Chinese DD.
So I got this double din fascia: http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/con-ct2 ... -zt-t.html. IMHO, its a piece of ****, although I have used it. Its really light plastic with no substantial area to mount a bracket. However, it doesn't look too bad when fitted, especially with Simon's woodgrain trim. I had to file down the fascia opening a bit to get the pioneer to fit. I suppose I'm happy enough with the final result, although I would have a like a more flush finish. Some pics:
I have a vid recorded but I need to edit it a bit. Here is an existing clip on Youtube using the same double din and phone:
I'm very happy with the unit so far. The screen is capacitive and has pin sharp resolution. I also installed an SWC adapter so I can change volume, source and track from the steering controls. Track control also works on Android. Obviously the Android version is no longer dependent on the headunit (like the D99) but will upgrade with the phone.
I have the installation complete but I'm still working on a few little issues with the phone. I'm using ARliberator to give full control of the phone and many users use Tasker to automate everything.
I bought the unit from Halfords. Purchase price was â‚¬300 euro but I had a discount card so I got it for â‚¬250. Halfords were also giving a â‚¬50 voucher with that particular unit (which I used to buy oil for my 75) so that effectively made the price â‚¬200. Additionally Pioneer were running a Cashback promotion with â‚¬100 back so the unit has really only cost me â‚¬100/Â£85. I think thats a real bargain for a top-end unit.
I also had to buy:
