This is for a Passat but everyone knows CS knows all the answers...

I have a VW passat 2003 (B5?) and the standard stereo is good but I want CD/iphone/ipod etc plus maybe a small amp/sub at a later date.

I have the standard CD/radio and CD changer in the dash in a double din arrangement.

I want this stereo in my car...

What would I need to fit this into my car??

Double DIN is a category of car radio head units whose size is 180 by 100 millimetres. This is one of the standard sizes for car radio head units that are placed under the international standard known as ISO 7736. The other category in this standard is single DIN which is 180 by 50 millimetres in size
 
  A special one.
Or you could just use this, may leave a bit of an un-tidy edge though.

And if you slip, you're taking the windscreen out. No 2nd chances.

What about this?

Obviously this will fit my car, but will it fit the stereo?
Hi Mate,

The metal cage will come with the stereo this is used to slide into the gap from where you have removed the factory stereo, the cage will essentially hold the new stereo in place inside the hole that is now left if that makes sense?

The wiring thats on the ebay link will convert the passat wiring to standard ISO wiring

the metal cylinder shaped thing will convert the passats radio to a standard radio connector

the black plastic will go in the hole first neaten and tighten the area ;)

So the two things i've linked will work? I can buy them both and I then have everything I need?
 
FLOL.

I'll actually help then, if the standard stereo is double the height of a normal one then any double din will fit.
You'll get a cage with whatever head unit you buy so no need to buy that.


In short, yes the one you posted will fit.
