Epic!

Me likey-likey!

It looks like yours is centered and fits better than some of the Pioneers I've seen installed... even though DIN is supposed to be an industry standard.

Yeah - I have been looking at the JVC 7" touchscreen (KW-AVX820) and love some of the features it has. Did you have to buy a bypass for it to play without the e-brake on? What model number is that Clarion - I like the way that looks as well. I do want integrated Bluetooth though - so that does limit the options some.

I am with you on the headrests - thought about trimming those posts myself - I would bet it would help out the back window especially from the rearview mirror.

Hey twisted can you tell me the specific model of the radio because I am crazy to install it to my cube, also I want to know if you need experience installing radios to install it.

The cut headrest



And the switch to watch dvds when driving... it makes the head unit think the e brake is on...... just hit it twice...

Nice, since you have an S you did not have to worry about steering wheel controls and such.

I dont understand the switch part? ??? you have to watch the DVD only if the parking brake is on??

No consideration for the rest in the car?

I'm thinking about a replacement radio, that one looks sweet! For those of us with the SL and the iPod connector, does that work with a new head unit? I'd like to be able to use the existing iPod port if I can (even though it's oddly placed).
