VW Bug In-dash receiver kit

Written By Daric, Tucson, AZ on Thursday, July 24, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very pleased with the overall kit. Everything fit nicely. It took a little figuring out (you're offered a choice as to how you want the final result to look), but end then end, it helps mitigate a very rectangular stereo in a rounded dash.

Pros: Easy. Matches dash.

Cons: Plastic was a little flimsy until installation.

Nice Looking!

Most Excellent for New Beetle

Written By Factotum, Wichita, KS on Thursday, June 26, 2014

This kit made the radio install go really well, and the radio looks good in the VW New Beetle dash.

Pros: Well designed for this application.

Cons: None

Great fit follows the contour of the dash

Pros: Nice design fits snug into the opening, follows the contour of the dash

Makes the Pioneer radio look great in our 05 New Beetle

Written By N5JJR, Ponca City, OK on Sunday, April 13, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I opted for the no trim ring installation option. After I installed it, I could not get the front panel of the Pioneer DEH-X7500HD to come off. Now I cannot get the face to come off the radio. It looks like it needs to slide a little to the right but it hits the trim piece and won't move enough to come off. It pops out about 10 or 15 degrees and won't come out any further. I am working with Crutchfield about this. Until I get it resolved, I don't think I can get the radio out without destroying the trim ring and I can't get the face off for security purposes.

Pros: Good installation and makes the radio look right at home in our 05 New Beetle.

Cons: See my review. A note in the instructions about this might make people opt to install with the trim ring and avoid the problem all together.

Easiest install ever !!

Metra 99-9008 Dash Kit

Written By Marty, Norman, OK on Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit is really two kits in one. You can decide which way looks better with your stereo and give the other pieces to a friend. The instructions that come in the package are a little unclear, but there are very few pieces so it isn't very difficult to figure out without them. And really, there aren't a lot of choices when it comes to mounting an after-market radio in a Beetle, so passing on this one would mean a LOT of custom work, and that just doesn't make sense for a daily-driver.

Pros: Looks reasonably good in the dash. "2 for 1" kit has different mounting options.

Cons: Manufacturer's instructions could be better.

Its nice to find a the right kit for an older install.

Many pieces but just what I needed

Written By Chachi007, Midwest, Il on Sunday, August 25, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit had the parts I needed but, wasn't really sure which ones to use. I did figure it out. Looks almost like it belongs..

Pros: Blends in well, tech service is top notch!

Cons: Could've included screws, a little clearer instructions.

Metra 99-9008 Dash Kit

Written By Bill, Florence, MS on Thursday, August 19, 2010

Instructions were clear. Looks great with the Clarion CZ-500. No gaps as
mentioned by others. The New Beetle has an oval opening for the stereo and I
was concerned it wouldn't fit correctly. I shouldn't have worried. It fits
perfectly. Plus, it came free with the stereo! Thanks Crutchfield!!

Metra 99-9008 Dash Kit

Written By Anonymous, Minneapolis, MN on Saturday, March 13, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits good, looks good. Yes, there is a gap at the bottom of the new head unit and it sticks out at the top, but the Bug's dash is such a weirdo shape that there would be no way possible to get anything other than a stock OEM unit to fit correctly. This kit does fill in the holes and it looks as good as it can.

The fit was perfect!!!!

Written By DAVID, So Cal on Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Instructions were clear........fit couldn't be better............resulting in super dashboard esthetics that was included in the price!!!!! How can you beat that????

Works, but that's about it

Written By manutius, Baltimore, MD on Wednesday, January 28, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'd agree with the previous reviewers comments. This kit is not very aesthetically pleasing at all, and it's very amateurish looking. I was very disappointed once it was installed. Everything else I have purchased from Crutchfield, up to this, has been great so I was expecting a higher quality item.

gets the job done

Written By Philip, Dallas on Wednesday, October 04, 2006

The factory radio has 3 dimesional curves. Any Sony, Kenwood, ALpine, etc radio has a flat face. This kit permits those models to fit into my VW Beetle, unfortunately it is not asthetically pleasing. It will be clearly obvious that you put in a new radio. With this kit, I have an overhang over the radio and a gap below the radio. I have put Crutchfield radios/kits in 5 other cars and have been totally pleased. I was NOT with this kit. I would be willing to spend more money to install a better one, but have not found one.

Fits the rounded shape of the dash!

Written By Adam, Clemmons, NC on Thursday, November 03, 2005

I wanted to use my Sony radio and keep the Monsoon amps active and still maintain the "rounded" dash that is in the VW Beetle. This did a great job! I love it and I love Crutchfield!


It is an amazing radio now! Thanks Crutchfield!
