You bought a 2007-2008 Honda Fit — great car, but its console makes it tough to upgrade the factory radio. The Metra 99-7872 dash kit allows you to install an aftermarket DIN (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in the dash panel, while maintaining all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls. The adapter is a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your dash.
Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this kit is compatible with your vehicle. 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.
Very good product
This part matches the finish of the dash, and would look great if it would actually sit flush against the dash. Maybe I didn't gt the pressure clips just right, but then again that's just another defect. Are we really so cheap we can't include them already on the part (or at least put instructions for them)
Pros: It looks just like the original except with a spot for an aftermarket radio.
Cons: It doesn't actually fit flush so it looks cheap.Crutchfield response on May 9, 2016 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
This is a cool design, and the ability to use single or double-din stereos is a nice feature. The face quality is lacking. Around the temperature control, there's a sliver of white light that leaks through. It just doesn't look as nice as the factory plate. The airbag light wouldn't click into place, because it's sleeve was a little too deep. I had to sand off .5 mm to get the airbag light to stay in place.
The kit looks very sharp and fit in well with the rest of the original dash.
Pros: Matches almost exactly
Cons: Plastic is a little brittle, accidentally snapped off a screw mount The opening is just (1/16") too small for the double din radio, so I had to really force the deck in the opening The trip piece would not go exactly flush due to the deck not seating in the opening well.
Fits better than I expected after reading reviews here and on amazon but it looks great. There's two screws the help hold the factory one in place that can't be put back in with this however because the brackets that they screw into can't be reattached but there's still one screw and clip that hold the new one on which secures it well enough
Pros: sits flush and looks good if installed right
Cons: not as secure as factory but works
Original kit arrived with a broken plastic stub for a mounting screw; Crutchfield customer service was great and sent me a new one in 2 days. It worked well and installation was fairly smooth with a double DIN chassis. Only thing was two mounting screws for the A/C controls couldn't be installed as there was no support bracket for them (they installed sideways into factory metal brackets from OEM stereo; no such provision on new faceplate.)
Pros: Decent fit, color and control markings match OEM one.
Cons: Lacked mounting for 2 A/C mounting screws that went in sideways
Fits perfect with great color match
Pretty poor fit. It won't sit flat and flush and the bottom half is raised a few mm's. There are also gaps around the edges. Single Din head unit did not fit snug in there either. Had to use workarounds. Double din fits fine.
Pros: Color and finish are a good match.
Cons: Poor overall fit.
The installation was fairly easy. My only complain is that the figure like the car,numbers,symbols for the position of the vents are dull and not as bright as the factory. They fit right in with the factory plugs and was no problem at all.
Pros: Fits and is easy to install. No mod needed to make it fit.
Cons: Poor quality as far as the illumination goes. Most of the dials light up good in the center but are dark on the side like all the way to cold and all the way to hot.Either ends are were the problem is not the center so it is most likely that you might miss it do to the fact that we usually focus on the center mostly.
Not the best fit in a 2008 Fit. Some of the edges aren't quite right, stick out a little bit. The color on the temperature adjustment dial (blue and red) don't match exactly the factory dial.
The color match's really well, but the fit is pretty bad. Gap on rounded edge of dash. Also does not seem to sit deep enough to attach to the climate control housing. This may be causing the rattling noise. I found this dash does a poor job of supporting the head unit. Bought replacement factory clips to replace the existing ones after wrenching my dash out in hopes it will provide a more secure fit. I will also try the "other" brand as I believe the fit issues stem from a poor design.
Pros: Matching color.
Cons: Poor fit, should provide replacement clips rather then relying on the existing clips (which are almost impossible to damage when removing your dash, unless your some kind of car stereo ninja).
This dash kit was for my Honda Fit, 2008. The kit adequately held my new head unit and looks as though it was made for the car, so I am happy with it. However, the fit of the kit isn't 100% perfect. It snaps into the dash not quite flush at the top right corner. It is possible this is because the place the snaps go into (in the dash itself) have worn from being unsnapped more than once, but I am uncertain. It LOOKS like the new dash kit is a millimeter or two from fitting perfectly. Also, the two side plastic pieces that hold the head unit in place by snapping into the dash kit do so (snap, that is) with less certainty than I'd like. What I mean is, when you snap the side pieces into the kit, it seems as though they're barely holding in place. I was really afraid that the head unit would come away from the face of the dash kit after a few bumps. Also, the instructions weren't absolutely correct for installation into my 2008 Honda Fit. There's a mention of a knee panel to be removed which doesn't exist (there's one on the driver's side, but it's not necessary to remove) and I was instructed to remove the glove box, which is not necessary either (it can simply be lowered by pressing in on the back corners of the inside of the box). Now, I don't want to sound too negative. The dash kit is unique and despite it's shortcomings, it looks good and does the job nicely. As a final note, the kit should come with a few extra clips that snap the kit into the dash.
Pros: Looks good and does the job.
Cons: Doesn't quite fit perfectly, but close enough. Side plastic pieces don't seem as sturdy as I'd like. Instructions aren't quite right (watch a video online of someone doing this job before doing it yourself). Should come with at least two metal clips that are easily lost when removing and installing dash kit. I managed to find the ones that came out and flew away, but I could have easily lost them. A couple extra clips would have eased my mind. I'd pay a buck or two more to have 'em.
Arrived in great shape and worked seamlessly with the dash, very minimal gapping.
Pros: Ease of installation, stock appearance, reasonable price
Cons: Plastic color was very slightly off from stock, but hardly noticeable.
Good dash kit. Easy to install and looks good. I put it in my moms honda fit with a jvc head unit and she loves it.
Great product. I still can't believe that an aftermarket replacement can fit and look so flawless.
Pros: fits perfectly.
Cons: Took me a bit to recognize that the single din adapter made the radio slot 1/8 inch too small. I called a Crutchfield expert on Sunday and they diagnosed the problem sight unseen. I felt like a dork but got my problem solved quickly and got the new deck installed quickly.
I wish I could attach a picture. I had it professionally installed because the reviews were terrible enough I thought maybe it could be bad installs. Color is not correct, whatever font they use is horrid. It's not even mildly flush with the dash.
Pros: I can put in double DIN or single.
Cons: I can slide quarters into my dashboard when I feel like it.
I fits the opening just fine, looks factory as well. Getting the factory radio out is very hard to do with out scratching the dash. Also make sure you remove ALL the plugs for the fans and lights, and reuse the OEM metal brackets. It really makes your new head unit hold more solid. My does not hold my airbag light or ac/defroster lights. They are in there, but I would not be surprised if one day they just slide out. cooling and heat knob colors are a bit lighter but nothing to make you take a second look.
Pros: looks like factory when installed.
Cons: Button and airbag lights do not hold very well in mine. Should tell you to use the factory metal plates.
Everything works fine, the trim plate wasn't good as expected.
Pros: Pioneer radio is great
Cons: Trim plate for the Honda Fit needs a little work. Doesn't fit perfectly.
Fits and looks like factory... Perfect!
Pros: Factory finish. Easy to use.
Easy to install and looks good. I like the extra shelf under the unt.
Pros: Looks like the Factory face plate. All the mounting points line up perfectly.
Cons: Unit sits too far back, but I think you could move the radio forward in the mount if you put some thought into it.
This works well, but be aware that you probably want to keep and use the OEM metal brackets. I bought a Sony radio that's in DIN format. Just using the metal tabs around the edges of the hole where the radio goes would leave it pretty flappy. I ended up using the OEM metal brackets that held the non-DIN Honda radio, and two screws that came with the Sony radio so that it's held by both the metal tabs around the front hole and the metal brackets and it's in there pretty solidly.
Pros: Fits pretty well.
Cons: Can be difficult to get OEM panel off without scratching dash. You really need to use the OEM metal brackets to hold the radio or it can flop around.
It looks flush but it rattles after a year. I bought two and both rattled. I'm giving up.
Fit and finish were equal to factory. Looks great.
This adapter does not fit correctly. Uneven gaps all the way around. Squeaking noises on rough road are very bad.
The kit works and looks decent. It is highly recommended that you get a tool to remove the original faceplate. **Please please please take care when pulling off the original faceplate. Many Fit owners, including myself, have broken the fan switch, because the Crutchfield instructions DO NOT warn you that the cable for the fan switch is extremely short, and when you manage to get the whole faceplate loose, if you just angle it or pull it a little, you will break your fan swich ~$30 part.** Everything else seems to be working just fine. Fitment is what you'd expect - not perfect and color match is not perfect, but it does work and for the price i'm not going to complain.
Unfortunately for Honda Fit owners there are few options for aftermarket deck kits. This kits poor construction results in an insecure deck (sagging, loose, and rattling). I worry that a pothole will someday send my deck flying to the floor, lacking any serious support. This kit alone has taken all the excitement away from getting a new deck and left me with a feeling of regret, only to be reminded that there is no other option. I give it three stars only because there is no other option...
Looks great, easy to install ... about 30 minutes (removing the radio from the Fit was the hard part).
So I decided to take my time and upgrade my Audio system First it was the radio I went with Alpine CDA-9884 so I had to buy the kit Obviously. After about 10 minutes of reading the installation drawings and looking everything over the install went great fits perfectly only problem I had was making sure my radio was set out enough to operate the CD deck. But it works like a champ.
The kit provided everything needed for an easy installation. It took me all of one hour to complete the task, which was mostly wiring. The only negative had nothing to do with this kit but involved the antenna adapter. The "extra" wire on the adapter must go to the switched power (ignition switch). This is the power connector to the antenna amplifier. If not connected, you'll get lousy reception at best. I say this because there's no instructions with the adapter. The dash mounting components are an absolutely perfect color match and looks great in my little Fit.

It fits my car [ Lisa Jun 11, 2016 ]
I chose this because I heard the Metra for 07-08 fit kit is much better than the Scosche [ Christian Mar 14, 2016 ]
Thanks for your question. No I'm sorry we only have it in black. [ Kenny May 10, 2016 ] Staff
