Great product. Fits perfectly, make sure you have a mini screwdriver set to get 2 of the 4 screws connected, otherwise it gets rather difficult to put in

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
makes installing stereo a breeze. the only complaint is the two upper screws that hold the front on are behind the mount bracket and are hard to install, you need to put the front on FIRST as to slightly bend the plastic mounts to allow the screws to be inserted in the front. if you have an extra long shaft number one phillpips then it wouldn't be a problem.
Pros:
works holds stereo nicely.
Cons:
front plate hard to install without extra long shaft screwdriver or installing it first.

Had to modify it to fit with my folding double din.

Written By Koopa, Kennewick, wa on Friday, June 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Works well for any double din that doesn't fold down for DVD insertion. I had issues with mine coming into contact with the bottom lip that hangs under the stereo. I had to cut it very thin so its extreamly flimsy, but still works fine.
Pros:
free
Cons:
had to modify

Written By Anonymous, Harrisonburg, VA on Friday, February 07, 2014
 
I used this to install my KDC-X597 in my newly purchased 2008 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport. It fits the stereo perfectly and looks great in the car as well. I don't have any complaints. Depending upon your stereo and car combination, you may not need to use the metal shroud is designed to fit around the main stereo head unit.
Pros:
Easy install. Good fit. Looks great.
Cons:
None. Pretty darn simple to do.

This bracket was so easy to put together and made the installation of the new unit a breeze. I have never had a self-install go so quick and easy. It looks like it was installed by professionals.
Pros:
Made specifically for my 2011 Impreza. No adjustments needed and looks like a professional install. IT WAS FREE !! Came with my unit.

Subaru dash kit for 2010 WRX

Written By Rick M, Beckley WV on Tuesday, August 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This dash install kit seems to be well made and fits nicely in the dash without a large gap around the vehicle dash. The texture and color of the kit goes well with the interior colors of my car. This dash kit does not seem to fit as well and it isn't as easy to assemble as the metra brand kits I have used in the past. That is the only reason for 4 stars. Overall this is a really nice product and had I not been used to metra I would consider this a 5 star product.
Pros:
Relatively easy to install and looks pretty nice once installed.
Cons:
Assembling the side plates to the front trim ring is somewhat difficult and the plastic seems a little softer than a metra brand dash kit. The gaps seem a little larger than on metra kits I have used in the past on different vehicles.

Cannot use your HU's trim ring

Written By Chris A, VA on Sunday, August 11, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Fits cleanly and securely. However, does not use your HU's DIN sleeve, and does not use your HU's trim ring. The result is a think gap all around the HU's face panel.
Pros:
Clean and secure fit
Cons:
Unsightly gap around some double DIN head units.

Look up "cheap" and a photo of this product should be there! Very poor quality plastic. I would up using the factory mounting brackets off the OEM head. And the Kenwood trim ring fit better in the dash.
Pros:
Think the plastic is recyclable.
Cons:
Flexible plastic

Used this kit to install an Alpine S920HD in a 2012 WRX and it works great. The screws mounting the side brackets to the front were a little difficult to access but not a big deal. The kit was not sent with my order but a quick call to support had it sent out

This was a great install. Very easy. This dash kit was a perfect fit for the OEM dash of the '08 impreza. It looks likes the car rolled off the dealership lot with this stereo installed. There is no noise of the stereo shifting around while driving at any speed.

Written By Tak, Fort Dix, NJ on Friday, April 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
At first I thought I wasn't going to like it based on how flimsy it kind of felt but once the aftermarket radio went in and with the use of a little tape (to tape down some plastic that was bending to the head unit), it was nice and sturdy and fit very well. Very easy to install and very nice looking.
Pros:
Easy to install, comes with all parts, looks great
Cons:
Some pieces are a little flimsy, but nothing a little tape can't fix

It's been a while since I've done a car stereo install, but remembered how easy it was when I bought my last deck via Crutchfield over 15 years ago ... so when my daughter asked if I could help her with an new deck ... I remembered how Crutchfield had brackets and connectors to simplify the installation. The instructions are a key to how to get things opened up.

Written By MIke, Pittsburgh, PA on Saturday, January 05, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This adapter was not good. It does fit and hold my radio but that is the end of the good part. It is made from plastic that feels cheap and the texture does not match the rest of my dash. You have to use these tiny screws to put it together so make sure you have a very long and very thin Phillips head screw driver. Crutchfield sent me a dash adapter for a Legacy by mistake and it was 100 times better than this thing.
Pros:
It fits in the dash and holds a radio
Cons:
poor build quality and crappy finish

Used to fit a Pioneer AVH-P3400BH, a double DIN unit, into a 2012 Subaru Forester.
Pros:
Fits. Looks reasonable.
Cons:
To fit a double din you have to cut out the center bar with a sharp knife. It would be better if the bar was made to detach in some way (e.g. snap-in / snap-out).
