used to be a sony fan but i recently got a pioneer and am very impressed with it. Almost identical to this one. Looks tasteful enough and sounds better than the sonys i've had.

Every modern car has a radio with a fascia like that. Except the wrx/sti

>>14340051
lmao what are you talking about. Every modern car has a 1u or 2u mount where you can easily slide the head unit out and replace it
>>
>>14339942
It is removable, it just leaves a nasty ass hole with diagonal sides.

Good luck getting it out without breaking it though.
>>
>>14340097
How modern are you talking about? Anything made in the last 10 years has a fascia like that. Sure, the back of it is double din but they all have that face. You just need a new faceplate to swap in an aftermarket one but then you might lose oem functionality

That's a Mitsubishi anon

I had a pioneer and for my girlfriend one too. I like both. I had an insignia that died young some how. Don't bother with best buy house brand stuff.
>>
>>14340334
quite a few modern cars also have other functionality tied in the same area.

My outback has the aircon controls and hazards on the same facisa so the aftermarket also needs to relocate a few buttons.

They actually come stock in some early 2000s BMWs
>>
>>14340866
Stock looking for some shit 90's civic maybe.

I just bought a pioneer unit that has the light settings you can customize.

When it's night time, it literally matches the faded yellow lighting that's already stock in my 1984 Buick

Since I want to make my life inconvenient, I'm thinking about installing a tape player instead of a pioneer unit which emits light equivalent of a small star during my nightly drives.
Is there any good bluetooth solutions with a high quality fm transmitter that you know of that can be hidden behind the radio?

Hey families, how difficult is it to install a unit yourself? Don't know cap about carz. I'm gud with PC's and small electronics though

>>14344642
Like installing a HDD in one of those tray slot things.
You pretty much connect the cables and jam it in the slot.

You just need to plug speakers, radio antenna and power cables propably.

If the harness in your car hasn't been cut up just buy the proper adapter and hook up the stereo connector to it.
It will plug into the factory harness and radio. Sometimes you can buy a harness that is plug and play for your new radio
>iso standard harnesses are made for most cars

Just don't be a hack job and cut off the factory harness like the PO of my car.

SOme cheap kenwood. They usually have that "255 RGB" display where you can pick the color yourself.

Keep your factory radio? The E46 looks like ass with an aftermarket radio.
