You Tube helpful, but READ the Crutchfied instructions first.
2009 MINI Cooper
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Perfect fit. Looks like factory. Radio mounting was a breeze.
Pros: Great look. Substantial construction - as good as the original parts. Perfect fit. No gaps.
Cons: You Tube video did not contemplate the fact that the replacement assembly is actually a little longer than the original and, consequently, the center console MUST be removed (or at least moved back out of the way) in order to get the new assembly correctly into place. The Crutchfield instructions did indicate that the center console should be removed, but it did not say why. I found out too late. Better instructions/warnings appear warranted.
