Double din in-dash receiver for porsche 996

Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 porsche C4 with a factory radio/cass player and really hate the it. I am looking at upgrading to an aftermarket unit. I really like the Eclipse product as i have one on my ML 430, it is AVN 2454. There is a new one in the market AVN 5495 with hard drive. Has anyone done a double din size receiver on a 911? I was thinking of rearranging the climate controls transplanting it to the slot for the Hi-Fi controls below the cassette holders so that I will have a space enough for the double din. I do not know if it is doable but I do not want to buy the eclipse and then have problem installing it so if anyone knows any information on this, thanks in advance.

Has anyone successfully installed a Double DIN unit? If so, what it a straight bolt-in job or did you have to do some changes? The opening on the top for the HVAC system looks taller than a standard DIN opening. Am I correct?

I am not the stereo guy.  But when you remove the a/c display and radio you will see a cross bar that separates the 2 units.

This cross bar is gone with the PCM trim.

Anybody know the part number for this bit?? Are there any other Porsche parts required to install a double-din unit in an '02 (Non-MOST) 996 with Bose and Changer? I'd like to install the Kenwood display.
