    *Decent* Install in '99 Saab 9-5

    Bought this kit for Single-DIN use in a 1999 Saab 9-5 (4-cylinder turbo) dash. Tight fit, open spaces around trim, but holds solid onto my JVC single-din stereo deck. Could definitely benefit from some extra trim fittings on the sides though, as with this setup there are gaps (similar width of a #2 Pencil). Baring in mind: -this IS listed as "Mazda"-, I am not unsatisfied with this purchase. Just slightly misleading is all... But, on the other hand, after several aftermarket soundsystem installations, this particular kit is NOT a loose fit. Definitely very snug, which in my opinion, is a great thing. SO, if you happen to be a DIY person (or don't mind the gaps), this kit will 'do the job' on this specific make/model car... yet, not the prettiest look. But, safely snug (esp if gaps are accomodated)! Beats a loose fitting, for sure. **Pic is without custom trim added, AKA stock installation (pre-mod).**

    This works great for a 2003 Mazda Tribute. The directions are not as clear as they could be. When trying to secure the metal housing to the plastic stereo holder it says press metal tab down. Actually you have to press all the tabs down with a screwdriver until it doesn't move around. I had to buy Stereo removal tools but I didnt need them. They dont work anyway. Just use a flathead screwdriver on each side and push in. Watch youtube videos about it.

    It does what it's supposed to, but it was difficult to install. The settings in the brackets seemed to be just *slightly* off which was frustrating and took quite a bit of time to correct. The plastic is flimsy and one of the pieces was broken when I opened the package. As this was the ONLY option for installing an after-market stereo in my Protogé5 I couldn't really recommend a better option. Fortunately, I haven't had any problems since the install.

    Purchased for my wife's double din car stereo came with 2 options single din and a double din trim kit. Double din has a support bar through opening that needs to be clipped and trimmed down smooth to install trim plate. Need to have a steady hand yo trim down or you could gap the sides up if you are not careful. Took 2000 grit wet sand paper to finish out smooth. Looks great!

    I really like clean installs on my 1994 turbo miata and the fit of this is awful. There is a 1/2" gap that goes all the way across the top and the cubby doesn't even fit in the tombstone. Super disappointed with this product, DO NOT BUY if you want a clean install

    Nominal, but not the best

    Flimsy, the bracket broke at one of the radio mounting corners. Super glue to the rescue. If there is another brand out there...I would probably try it before using this one. That said, the radio has been installed for about a month and the mounting bracket seems to be holding up okay.

    I just so happen to have a "rare" Miata trim level apparently. The OEM pioneer unit was a wonkey size and they don't make a perfect replacement for it. I will have to get the lower level dash bezel to make it fit.

    This fit my vehicle perfectly! I am always concerned when a new stereo is being installed into an older vehicle. It turns out that I had no reason for concern . The tech not only recommended, but re-assured me that it would look and fit great. He was right.

    Fit well in my 96 Miata and allowed me to out in a more modern headunit with Bluetooth. It is worth noting that this does not exist according to Crutchfield. They said I would have to fab a mount after telling me that the HU I bought from them fit in my car.

    Tough to review because it can fit a variety of cars, but it did work for my 02 Protege5, it just never fully "clicked" in, and the support for the back of the deck included in the instructions make absolutely no sense, at least for my car. Your mileage may vary.

    It's very fragil, and will bend if too much force is used. Had to drill new holes to de able to fit an aftermarket radio. Also some trimming required for pioneer radio. Should have them install radio to avoid having to remedy on your own.

    This kit was easy to use.Once you break down the dash you pop the radio in the bracket, connect your wire harness(s) and antenna, then pop the radio and bracket into the dash..then reassemble the dash.

    Not the answer for installation of a double din stereo in a 1993 Miata. None presently available. Technically it needs a 1 1/2 din. There are single dins that do work excellent! From this manufacturer.

    Once I got the OEM deck and cubby out, it was immediately apparent that for a single DIN stereo going into the Mazda I was working on, the kit is redundant and not needed. Seemed like a nice enough product, but I returned it.

    Replaced the OEM Mazda Radio with a Bluetooth capable model and needed a two DIN box to take up the extra space. The Metra Dash Kit worked perfectly and provided extra storage.

    The radio mount was just what I needed. It fit the car (2006 Mazda Tribune) great and the radio fit perfectly. It really did the job just as I hoped.

    When I received the item it was cracked. Already had my stereo out of the dash so had to use it, but had to install it upside down for it to work.

    The kit was a perfect fit for my 05 Mazda Tribute. The Kenwood DPX501BT fits perfectly with no play. The unit looks like it was put in by the factory.
