You bought a 2005-07 Infiniti G35 — great car, but its console makes it difficult to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's 95-7605 dash kit allows you to install a new double-sized (4" tall) receiver in the G35's dash panel, while maintaining all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls.
The kit is available in silver or brushed aluminum, a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your Infiniti G35's dash. Warranty: 1 year.
Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.
Great service and delivery
Pros: Fast shipping
Cons: Was an issue with my bank but they handled it fast and quick
After months of deciding whether to replace the factory radio, I went and purchase a Kenwood from here. This was the only kit available but at a great price compared to other sites and retail stores.
Pros: Extremely easy to install.
Cons: Would rather prefer a kit with the OEM black buttons.
I thought the buttons would be black, instead a light grey color. Fits in my 2006 G35 Coupe. Silver finish does not match perfectly with original, but the difference is not noticeable. Overall I would recommend. If you have extra cash, go for the brushed aluminum finish.
Cons: Light grey buttons
Fit and finish is good enough, its not metal, nor is it $300. Great fit on 2007 G35 coupe
perfect fit and trim color
I just had the system installed in my 2005 G35x Infiniti and I love it.
Cons: Not too easy to use
No problems, works as advertises. Only problem I saw was to read the fine print on the "brushed aluminum", its not really metal. No other option.
Pros: Good fit, controls work fine
Cons: Not real aluminum, matches close enough, but would like to have to option of real metal to match the other interior trim
Unit is super expensive, even with purchase of a stereo through Crutchfield, changes all of your buttons and dials to a cheap feeling plasticky buttons, and does not fit quite perfect, (even after a few tries) the bottom of this panel is not flush with the panel beneath. If you are looking to put an aftermarket stereo into a G35x you are more or less stuck with this, but, dont go getting your hopes up that this will be a perfect fit or match to your interior. The "Brushed Aluminum" is in fact plastic and does not match the factory appearance of my dash panels very well at all (as they are Actually Aluminum)
Pros: I was able to mount an aftermarket stereo
Cons: Plastic, does not fit or look like factory, incredibly expensive
I went with the standard silver model, unit looks good, buttons function well but they need to do a better job to match the original fit and finish.
Pros: Does the job
Cons: Better fit and finish
Where do I start.... First of all the buttons are gray and feel "cheep" the color of the adapter is not a good match. This is not something that complements the G35 at all. but if you want a after market radio you just half to suck it up and get it.
Pros: Great customer service from Crutchfield.
Cons: The buttons are the wrong color, They were grey and should have been black, and they feel spongy, Color of the adapter did not match my factory console, and looks very cheep, Metra dropped the ball on this one big time.
Installed in a 2006 Infiniti G35 with Bose/Nav. First of all, I can openly admit that I am not experienced in audio installations, but I did this pretty easily with only a couple minor problems. I was able to do this b/c Crutchfield is AWESOME! The directions they give you are extremely helpful, hats off to the tech writers there! There were a few issues I had questions with but they were all answered VERY quickly by Crutchfield's Customer Support (which are amazing, seriously a 10/10). The product itself is a well-made product. Not perfect. The color match isn't a 100% match but it's extremely close. Maybe a 90% match. I got the "brushed aluminum finish." The worst part about this would be the buttons color (which don't match the black at all) but it really doesn't make a huge deal to me. All of the functions still work perfect. **This has nothing to do with this kit, but if you are putting a new head unit in and you have the pop up navigation, there are a few additional steps to separate the nav from the stock headunit/harness. There are 3 or 4 screws on each side of the medal casing that holds the stock head unit in place. I thought I had them all out and got really frustrated when it still didn't come out. You have to plug the nav in, pop the nav up, and there is a hidden screw behind the arms of the nav. It's hard to explain but you will see when you take it apart. Common sense should take over**
Pros: Fits good, everything works,
Bought to use after buying new stereo. Didn't fit exactly but it works. Wish it had the same quality buttons as the OEM shroud.
Cons: Low quality buttons Kind of fits
Works great .ac controls work perfect
Pros: Works great
Cons: A little different color on the brushed finish Acceptable 90% but not perfect
It works and even though that's the most important part I would have done more research to find one with better climate control Buttons. These are horrible. It completely takes away the luxury feel/appearance of the car. I was so disappointed after having it installed. To the point that if the car had these originally, I would have never bought it...I hate it that much!
Cons: Hate the look
I'm rating the adpater kit as almost excellent because of the fact that I had to make slight cuts near the mounting brackets with my Dremel in order for it to fit flush and perfect (without wide seams). The wiring interface and button controls all work perfectly. Does is look exactly the same as the original? NO, but it's more than good enough for me. In fact, no one who has gotten innto my car has even noticed that it's a non-OEM piece. What they do notice is that I have a very nice stereo installed and the excellent sound that it puts out. So, for me the benefits of the new stereo is more than an acceptable trade-off. If I didn't have to make the custom cuts to the adapter I would have given it a 5-star rating.
Pros: - All buttons and controls work perfectly. - Looks very close to the OEM piece. - Wiring and connections instructions were clear and accurate. - Quality of contruction appears to be up to OEM standards.
Cons: - Customization / cutting was required to the kit for perfect fit.
I agree with all the adverse comments from other reviewers. But I'm giving it four stars because it allowed a head unit replacement that would otherwise be impossible (or require a custom-built panel). I believe there are two finishes available: brushed aluminum and silver. I got the brushed aluminum. Even though the surface is painted plastic, it comes pretty close to the factory metal surface in most lighting conditions. (The difference grows in low-angle lighting, but is still OK.) They get the "brushed" texture by brush painting the thing in one direction. It works, although the brush strokes are a little more curvy than the OEM metal texture. Yeah, the buttons were disappointing. Nowhere near the stiffness and crisp detent of the originals. Their choice of a grayish color (vice original black) for the buttons is inexplicable, although it ends up looking pretty good, strangely, with my beige leather and brown dash. It's made entirely of plastic, so you can't afford to put any stress on it... you'll break it if you try to use screw tension to pull in a not-quite-fitting head unit bracket. The gap between my JVC and the opening is a little wider than I'd like, but not bad enough to correct. I had absolutely no problem getting it into the dash, with no gaps. I suspect some folks might have put the other panels in slightly askew. So: Lots to not like here, but there's no other choice and it does the job.
Pros: It works; finish is a decent match; huge discount from Crutchfield.
Cons: Finish isn't a perfect match; cheap buttons; buttons gray instead of black; loss of temp dial, replaced with up/down buttons; dubious plastic construction.
Fit and finish leaves something to be desired, both matching with the finish (brushed) and the matching of the depth (off 1/16"). Only option to install an aftermarket off the shelf kit that I found.
Pros: Allows to easily drop in aftermarket head unit
Cons: Fit and finish
I knew what I was getting based on reviews at enthusiast forums like 6MT.com and G35driver.com....and they were right. It works well enough but looks very aftermarket, the grey buttons look faded, like they came out of an abandoned car out in the desert, and the tactile feel is very sloppy...the fit is fairly poor, and the aluminum finish is a poor match for the stock Infiniti interior trim. But hey, it was half off with the purchase of a radio, and it was in stock. Oh, and a 1/8" gap at the bottom (with Pioneer AVIC-X940BT) that needed to be filled.
Pros: It works. Half off the price with the purchase of a radio. And it was in stock.
Cons: Looks and feel very aftermarket, ugly buttons, poor switch feel, color and finish is a poor match to factory Infiniti trim. 1/8" bottom gap with Pioneer DD X940BT installed.
not bad with the unit attached, but vary simple looking. more style for the price would be appreciated. i mean its literally just a small piece of thin plastic
Really, an excellent replacement. Out the box, I was concerned because it was plastic that was painted. After installed, it matched so well that all my fears were gone. Climate control works great. Wish the button were black.
Pros: Great fit. looks good when installed.
Cons: buttons on the ac should be black instead of grey.
Miss OEM Controls.
Pros: Brushed aluminum kinda matches. Double din AppRadio 2 fixes and works great.
Cons: Buttons are tacky. Buttons are grey not black. Different font type. No temp knob.
Unless a new stereo is a must, I would not recommend this. For the full price it's pretty much a ripoff. You could get it for half price if you purchase the stereo through crutchfield, but you can get same stereos at less cost elsewhere. Overall a little dissatisfied with the buttons.
Pros: Aluminum matches the trim nicely, install pretty easy
Cons: The buttons look too tacky compared to the original
Not very happy with this product. Crutchfield advisors said that it was a perfect match to my existing trim, even though my existing trim is Billet Aluminum, and this item was a painted silver plastic. Crutchfield has always been great, just not too happy this time.
Cons:Crutchfield response on August 22, 2012 We now offer a brushed aluminum style kit as well: 120957605A
Fit and finish is below average. Doesn't match the rest of the din kit for the hvac controls. Dome paint chip. Doesn't fit clarion system without a little bit of a gap.
