    First time installing an aftermarket radio.Thanks to Best Buy's online tool for determining if this was fit for my car.Now that the radio was installed, I absolutely love the look.i went from a double din factory radio to a single din.In the package are multiple faces where you can have storage underneath (for the single dins only), or you can customize to your own liking using their other faces they include.I used the face with storage underneath and I really love how convenient it is.I am able to place my wallet and phone without having to take up my cup holders.An added plus is the storage is located right beneath my aftermarket radio that has an aux port.So I can listen to music off my phone and just stick the phone into the storage beneath AND I don't have I worry about buying a long aux cord as well.Nothing but pros for this product and no cons whatsoever!!! A+!!!

    Do not buy - One of the worst products ever made

    The packaging said it was for a stock Buick Century 2002 model, but it clearly was not. I had to break off one side and then drill holes in it and add an extender (using the broken pieces glued together just to make it work. The instructions were translated from a foreign language so I suspect many details were left off. By the time I realized the part was not designed for this car (even though the package said it was for my car and the Best Buy Geek confirmed it was the right product according to his judgement), it was too late into the project so I opted to rig it instead of putting everything back together and driving back to Best Buy for a refund. I wasted two hours of my life due to this part.

    Metra Installation Kit for Sony MEX-N5000BT

    This installation kit was not the right one for my 2005 Chevy Equinox. My husband bought it for my radio but didn't see on the box that it wasn't for my car. We returned it to Best Buy and got the right one. You have to make sure that the kit you buy will fit your vehicle. The new kit fit just right and looks so good in the slot. Since the radio is smaller than my original, I now have a storage space underneath the radio. It looks very professional and sturdy. We had the radio installed by Best Buy and so glad we did. They did an excellent job.

    Recently did a head unit replacement in my 06' GMC Envoy, bought this after shopping around and found the price to be quite competitive. Instructions were easy to read and overall kit had everything I could use for the job, I only wound up needing 3 pieces from the kit for my setup. Only thing I would recommend for the project is to make sure you open all the packaging within the kit. I found a set of screws that I needed but didn't know they where included until I was cleaning up and getting ready to throw everything away.

    This too was a necessary piece after my wife stereo was stolen they destroyed the old one it's one of those pieces you do need for any kind of aftermarket stereo installment. Comes with a little extra tray below it which really doesn't hold much besides a wallet maybe some cards but make sure your hand fits in the slot and don't forget what's in there it could be lost and forgotten very simple and easy installation

    GM DIN and a half adapter

    I bought this to put in my 2001 Camaro SS. Of my whole stereo install, this was the biggest pain in the rear to assemble. The fit while assembling it was not spectacular, and the side bolts stuck out a bit where I had to finagle it into place. Now that its in place, I dont know if i'll be able to get it out if I had to without tearing a bunch of stuff up. In the end, I got it to fit and it looks pretty good. I might check out some other manufacturers if I needed another one though.

    I bought this lighting cord because both of my apple ones failed. I have one under warranty that I will return and get a new one. I still need another one for the house and my vehicles. So I bought this one. This cord is alittle longer and less expensive. It seems like this cable is thicker. Both of my apple cords broke at the end of the cord where you plug it in at. The lighting cords worked for about 12 months. If this new cord fails I will review again.

    You have to cut the middle divider with a razor to install a double DIN radio...why?!?! It leaves a nasty mark on the outer edge that is visible. I expected more from a Best Buy install product. Plastic could also be thicker for durability, but it serves its purpose. It’s a mediocre product at best.

    Unless you are an expert at looking at a picture that doesn't give a very good idea of what picture matches which part then stay away from this item. Also the part I eventually figured out I needed, broke when trying to install. Again I wasn't sure based on the picture how I was supposed to actually install the part. Had to go buy another install kit at a higher price but it was easier to understand.

    Used this to mount my pioneer. While Ithe worked ok after using razor blade and double sided tape to keep the trim ring on. One should not have to do this. Just to recap. The factory trim ring that comes with the stereo does not fit when mounted in this kit. Theven trim ring that comes in the kit just falls right off. Had to use double sided tape to make it stay.

    Good product for the price. The only bad thing is they are a pain in the butt to install for Cavaliers. I had it installed with my new cd player by Best Buy. I watched the guy install it, and he had to take apart the dash. So, if you have a 2004 Cavalier, you may want to have it professionally installed. Overall, no complaints.

    Other than the instructions could be a little more detailed it is great for price lots of leftover pieces. They could probably save money if they separated double din and single din you could install two radios with this kit. I did have to do a little cutting of my dash to make radio i chose fit also but wasn't much.

    This is a great kit for many vehicles, if it lists your vehicle on the back then it will fit. This kit is also great for custom installations also as it allows a single DIN into a single DIN spot, Single DIN into a double DIN spot, and double DIN into a double DIN spot. There are also many strong mounting hole locations.

    Just dig through the kit and find the one that fits your stereo, then slap it in. The plastic is sturdy. I don't have nimble hands and tend to be more forceful than necessary at times when putting in audio equipment and the tabs didn't snap off like they have in the past with the scoches.

    The installation on this stereo was perfect. I would definitely use this best on Colonial again for a stereo install in my car. They are very nice are quick to install and keep you informed. The look is fabulous and you can't tell they installed anything in you car. Clean install no wires can be seen.

    When I first went to put aftermarket radio in thought I had the right one when it said GM but after arriving home and going to install the part found out it was different glad I was able to right part and looks factory after install was completed

    My new stereo installation isn’t perfect and it’s partially because of this item. While it is supposed to be universal, it didn’t fit my stereo exactly and I had to bend it enough so that it started to show white from the bending.
