I understand what you're all saying, but perhaps (just maybe) you guys are mistaken. Let me explain. That's obviously not the factory-installed dash that the car came with. So my theory is that the black plastic thing was used to convert the double din opening into a single one, so that the single din dash could be mounted. Perhaps (just maybe) this adapter is making you guys think that it is not double din. I don't know.. just thinking out loud.

I went out and measured the opening, sans the black adapter thing, and it measured to be 4in. Then I measured the opening, counting the black adapter thing, and it measured to be about 3.5in. So if a double din dash doesn't need a similar black adapter thing for mounting, then one should fit, but if it does need something like that, then I can see that it wouldn't fit.

But who knows. Like I said before, I'm car-illiterate. lol

I don't know for sure, but it looks like a 1 1/2 to me.

My suggestion if it turns out to be double din:
Put a 7 inch touch screen in the dash, make yourself a mobile car pc, mount it under the dash.
Fit PC with WIFI, GPS, DVD, and any other fancy shit you can think of
Awesomely pimping car stereo for cheap!

This is what I am doing for my next car....

@ lordvader129- Yeah, I know they make those single DIN screens that flip out and such, I just thought "in-dash" referred to the screens that were completely.. you know.. in the dash. I'm probably completely wrong, but that's just what I always thought. I may end up going with single DIN screen like that though. We'll see.

@ yaazz- haha yeah, that's what I hope to do.. eventually. But I'll be going off to college soon, so idk if I want to bother (as I doubt I'll be taking my car). We'll see.

Don't know if youve seen mine or not, but its a motorised single din pioneer unit, has onboard GPS and ive got a 6 disk changer in the boot.

Please excuse the at this point in-progress work, the glovebox was out on the left at the time of pics.

A great unit, don't know how you'd get on with one in your car, i didn't take much notice of the dash.

Not a bad looking car either by the way.

That's a nice setup you have there. Hopefully I can get something similar. And I totally just freaked out, I was like, "Why the hell are there speedometers and other gauges and such on the right!?!?" Then I remembered you're not from the U.S. haha.

And its a '00. Not a GT, but it has a couple tricks up its sleeves biggrin.gif. And a nice BIG addition will be put on around summer time (that is of course if i dont decided to get rid of this car and upgrade to a GT...I'm kinda torn as to what i should do atm)

heh, i was off, the dash looks exactly like my 98 GT except mine has a little trapdoor over the cig lighter, i guessed yours was older because it didnt have the door, lol

of course now my car needs a new engine, so im debating getting a new engine (and potentially being in this position again in a year) or getting an 05 or 06 GT smile.gif
