Fits perfectly in my 2002 Acura TL w/Nav.
It sits flush in the dash and looks great. The only problem I had with it was the speed clips, they're too big to fit in the CD holder and I had to cut them up to get them to work. Other than that it works great.
Pros: -Looks great
Cons: -Difficult to get CD holder attached
Installed this on a 1999 Acura TL, and it was almost perfect. The only problem was the quick clips. The clips themselves are too big for the vehicle. You either have to alter the clips, or (like I did) break the screw holes off of the car's stock unit and use those with the original screws to keep the dash kit attached. Either way, once everything is situated it looks professional and actually matched the color of my car's interior.
Pros: Looks good and fits the overall dash nicely.
Cons: Quick clips didn't fit my car correctly.
Perfectly engineered for replacement of factory unit. Used it with a Pioneer single head unit.
Pros: Accurate instructions provided for dash dismantling.
Made the install fast and easy, matches the dash really well.
Pros: matches dash, looks great with a nice, tight fit.
Cons: can't think of any.
This dash kit fit just like it was supposed to. Made the job look nice and professional.
Great product. Worked like it should.
Pros: Perfect fit. Easy to install.
A Perfect Fit for my after market Sony Stereo and the space provided by my Acura.
Pros: Easy installation, Snug Fit, and it looks great as well.
Cons: Nothing well maybe another page or so describing installation.
It was a perfect fit !
Pros: Simple and easy
Overall fitment was pretty good, but seemed to be flimsy.
Pros: Fitment is decent.
Cons: Plastic tabs are not high quality.
The finish on the adapter has much more texture than the stock dash trim, so a little bit of "wet sanding" will get it closer to the smooth stock finish on my '03 Acura TL. Also couldn't figure out how to make the "quick clips" work as illustrated, to attach the slide-out drink holder, as they seem too large to fit in the space. Maybe that was just me, but I did figure out a way to make them work, just not as the instructions showed. My first attempt I used the DIN sleeve to mount the radio in this adapter, but that made the radio sit way back in the dash, and I had trouble pushing a particular button on the lower edge of the unit because of this. I changed and used the ISO brackets provided instead of the sleeve, and the radio now sits out farther at a perfect depth. With this depth, you cannot use the provided trim ring, which is fine - the head unit's trim was sufficient.
Pros: Provided a good solid fit for my new head unit.
Cons: Finish doesn't exactly match factory, needed sanding to rub away texture.
A little bit flimsy, although the fit was good. One of the tabs was already almost snapped off when it arrived and had to be glued.
Pros: good fit
Cons: not sturdy.
This was NOT an easy install. I needed to take apart almost the entire center console. But it would not have been possible without the instructions. Great Job Crutchfield! Once complete it looks great ...except that I have the wood trim all over the dash and the finish on the plastic is not quite the same as the factory finish. I wish they had an option to buy wood trim pieces to cover the plastics.
This kit fits like a glove in my 2000 TL, Couldn't be more happy. Color is a little darker then the dash but still looks very nice. The instructions were quite helpful. Great product. Thanks Crutchfield.
This kit works great, but the install sheets were godsent. I have installed many,many decks and never one this tedious. I believe it was 14 pieces needed to be removed before the old deck came out! Thanks guys!
Since the TL has a very distinctive radio shape (angled on one side, flat on the other), this kit was essential for a good-looking install. Product was a good fit for the factory space and the final install looks nearly perfect. I took away one star (would've only taken 1/2 if possible) because the finish on the plastic is not quite the same as the factory finish (close enough, but no spot on).<BR><BR>I'll also give kudos here to the Crutchfield installation guide. It gave very detailed and specific removal/replacement instructions for my car.
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team. They verify what’s in the box, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
This kit was recommended for my vehicle. [ Christopher Dec 18, 2015 ]
