What else fits in the top position of the center console?

Here is my dilemma-

I recently bought an 04 S with an aftermarket head unit installed. It is the Pioneer AVIC-N1, which has a pop out screen. The problem is, with the screen out, it blocks the climate control. I know the climate control will also fit in the bottom position, and I have the appropriate trim piece. However, once I move the climate control, what can I put in its place in the top? Does the 4 CD holder fit? What about an empty pocket? I don't just want to put a blank piece of plastic in there. I suppose I could just leave well enough alone, but it kind of bothers me that it's blocked. Thanks for the input!

Sorry, I should have mentioned... since mine is an 04, it comes standard with cupholders above the climate control position.

A storage bin will fit where the radio goes, so I guess it will fit where the a/c display goes. Don't know for sure. Never seen anyone try to so that. See if it fits.

Pic from JMatta.

Interesting... I could move the radio down to where that radio is in the picture, since the screen angle is adjustable. Does moving the radio down there just work, or is modification/additional parts needed?

Hey 99miata,

Still working with your console? I had no problem moving the radio to the lower position; it fits right into the slot and locks in. The toughest part is fishing the wires down and the a/c control wires up. The bottom storage bin snaps right in after you remove the tab on top (I used a file). I suppose I should have taken pictures, but I always remember that after the job is done.

jmatta-

Yeah... after I received the part I realized I didn't know what to put in its place! When you say bottom, do you mean the very bottom storage bin that is slightly curved (the one that is displaced by the relocated climate control) or the one right above it?

Thanks!

If you look at the picture, the radio is in the "top lower" position; the bin in the "botttom lower" position. The bottom bin has the curved sides which match the lower compartment (just like the face plate). When the ac controls are in the upper dash, the face plate is rectangular. The bin below the ac control in my car (refer to pic) would not fit in the upper most dash position, due to size differential. Please note my car is an'02; your car may have slightly different size openings.
