Pain to get in

Written By Andrew, California on Wednesday, July 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Fits okay once you wrench it into place, otherwise miserable. Odd setup, you hvae to cut it to make it work for a double din, it's just difficult to work with. Looks nice once you put a bunch of work into it.
Pros:
good match for Audi paint, looks almost stock
Cons:
pain to wrestle in, have to cut

Good in-dash kit

Written By Javi, Jersey City, NJ on Monday, June 30, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This kit perfectly matches the color of my 2006 Audi A4 dashboard and has a great finish look. However, I don't give it 5 start because of the fact that once installed, the only way to remove it involves removing the whole dashboard console.
Pros:
Great look with perfect fit
Cons:
Permanent install very difficult to remove

A Servicable Solution

Written By DieHardNYYFan, Charleston, SC on Wednesday, March 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This mounting kit is remarkably simple and of reasonable quality. It was very easy to remove the center bar to enable installation of a Dual DIN radio in my son's 2004 Audi A4. The biggest issue I had with the solution is that you need to screw the mounting brackets onto the side of the radio. As a result, you will not be able to use the DIN tools to remove the radio in the future which sorta defeats the purpose of installing a radio which conforms to the DIN standard. I suspect I will know just how big a pain in the neck this will be if/when he blows out the fuse on the back of the radio. If you can see past this shortcoming, the solution is very stable. The radio slid in with little effort and was very secure.

The kits fit and looks awesome in my Audi. I only had a question about the mounting brackets for the actual head unit, but figured out how they attach to the trim piece in only a few minutes. Overall my wife and I are extremely happy with this product.

Audi In-dash Receiver Kit

Written By Anonymous, CA on Monday, January 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Color match is close and the fitment is good. Problem with this kit is that once it has been installed into the stock radio position, there is no easy way to remove it from the dash. The plastic side clips which secure the unit are completely inaccessible. Wish I had read the reviews prior to purchasing. Ended up having to purchase a separate pioneer specific mounting cage and will have to trim the plastic trim pieces from this kit and velcro the facing in place for coverage.

Audi A4 Double Din receiver bracket

Written By RicS, Southern California on Friday, September 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Designed to fit a 2003 Audi A4 with the Bose Symphony stereo system. Fits seamlessly allowing the installation of a double DIN third party replacement deck from Pioneer.
Pros:
Order turnaround time was accurate and free shipping. Very knowledgeable customer service team.
Cons:
East coast based warehouse. Shipping to the west coast takes 4-5 days with free shipping.

Looks great, but no removal

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Looks great, but can't be removed.
Pros:
Matches the factory center console perfectly.
Cons:
Can NOT be removed once it is installed, so you better get it right the first time!

Sub-standard

Written By Atomic13MJB, Boston, MA on Friday, August 23, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Honestly, it's crap. The plastic is thin and flimsy. I had molding problems on one side and as a result it doesn't hook into the car correctly. That is, it pops out of the dash from time to time. You're better off spending extra and getting a different kit. The one sent by Crutchfield is not that easily removed IF it actually stayed mounted in the dash.

07 A4 double din kit

Written By SamW, Sugar Land, TX on Wednesday, July 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a very cheap kit, but it was free so can hardly complain there. The kit will snap into place and then can not be removed, this is definitely less than satisfactory for adding additional accessories later (ipod cord, sat radio, nav module, etc). As of yet I have not fully installed the receiver, because I will be adding some accessories to my radio. But it does seem like I might have difficulty getting the radio to sit in the opening properly using this kit. Also, you have to remove a center section if you are installing a double din receiver. To do this properly took some trial and error for how much plastic to remove.
Pros:
Free, finish seems pretty close to factory in car
Cons:
Cheap and is a one-time use, would like to have a kit made purely for double din receivers

Audi In-dash Receiver Kit

Written By Anonymous, Kenosha, WI on Saturday, April 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very easy to install but does not look as good in the dash as the factory head unit looks it needs tighter gaps.
Cons:
Gaps to wide and the slot below the head unit looks out of place.

not as simple as it should be

Written By chris13, Lake Charles, LA on Thursday, April 25, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
First of all, a major step missing from the instructions is to remove the 'frame' from your aftermarket head unit!!

yes it does what it says and once installed with the unit i purchased it looks great. that said, the instructions leave a great deal to be desired about what you take off, what you put where etc. for my application certain pieces were cut/snapped off but it's not clear which. Even the tech advisor from Crutchfield had a difficult time explaining to me and agreed the instructions are terrible.
Pros:
looks great
Cons:
terrible instructions

Had trouble, but works

Written By Audi A4, Albany, NY on Saturday, August 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Had trouble getting it to lock into dash. Finally realized that I shouldn't use the cage that came with the stereo. Use the side brackets included with the kit even with a single DIN stereo and it should lock in fine. Don't like that special tools will be needed to remove in the future...
Pros:
Nice finish - very similar the the rest of the dash.
Cons:
Removal will require special tools.

Ok, not ideal

Written By Natem, Greenville, SC on Tuesday, October 04, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This product worked, but you would think that they could send a panel removal tool with it. Once installed, your aftermarket radio or nav system can not be removed without cutting the trim apart. A panel removal tool would be the only way to reuse the same kit.

Not All A4s Can Use This

Written By Michael, Lexington, KY on Tuesday, June 28, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
While a lot of A4's have a Double DIN sized factory stereo, there are some that do not. Such as mine. If you have a configuration that has a Concert II radio, your AC controls and then a small tray underneath, this probably wont work.

You need a single DIN kit. Crutchfield does not have in stock the trim kit for this type of application. Though when I called them back, they were extremely helpful in finding a trim kit that does work.

Cannot be removed once installed.

Written By PhilGlov, San Diego on Saturday, April 16, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It looks very good. Fits well, was easy to install, and came free with my purchase of a new radio. Crutchfield also made this easy with plenty of good documentation for the DIYourselfer. Only problem I see is removal. Once your ddin radio is installed, it appears it can not be removed without ripping the kit apart. It snaps in in such a way it cannot be removed without removing significant interior components. What's more disturbing is the screws for these interior elements cannot be accessed with kit in place (Audi Avant A4 2005). This problem will become immediately apparent when you try to add a HD module, or Satellite feature, after installation. Be sure to take this into consideration when you make your purchase.

Great product! One of the, if not the best mounting kits I've ever used. The fit
is and texture match are perfect in my 2005 Audi A4. And best of all, it was
free with the stereo. Thanks Crutchfield!

be careful that it's the correct one

Written By MikeI, Sacramento, CA on Monday, August 23, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This product is listed as the dash kit for the 2005 Audi A4. If you have the "Audi Concert" radio in your A4 this will not fit. It is only good for the "Symphony" radio. The discription does not state this.
