1999 Audi A4 Quattro (B5) - needed an adjustment

JimmyC from Atlanta, GA on 2/7/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I tried everything, even Scosche customer service after the Incredibly empathetic and helpful Crutchfield rep tried all he could. In the end I decided to go off of the reservation and experiment. I pulled the entire frame off of the radio and air conditioning panel. Be Very careful as you do this- the metal clips that hold it in place can come off of the frame. Then I clipped the two central thin long tabs by 1/4 inch and placed the dash kit behind the frame. Then placed the whole thing back in carefully.

Pros: Eventually it works - most of the area was covered.

Cons: Need to make these adjustments - also - since the dash is glossy, might have been better to make this glossy not brushed also.

Fits tight

Bert from CT on 1/28/2014

1996 Audi A6
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product fits very tight, could not put outer bezel on. The wire harness only connected half of the wires. But it is a 1996 Audi.

Pros: Price

Cons: Needs to connect more of the stock wires.

Fit issues

Anonymous from Fuquay, NC on 1/1/2014

1998 Audi A4
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The main front piece did not fit properly. The thinner horizontal pieces were too long and caused them to warp slightly when forced into the factory dash opening.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Final fit and finish was difficult to obtain

Not a good fit

RandyB from Morristown, TN on 9/27/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This surround is better than nothing and better than the piece that comes with the stereo. But it did not fit my factory opening very well. I had to file down the edges to make it fit. Once installed, it has quite a bit of space around the stereo. It's not terrible but no where near the German tolerances I am used to with my Audi. The gaps around the stereo are just too big.

Pros: Better than nothing

Cons: Not a great fit.

install faceplate for Audi

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This plate does not fit the 1998 Audi a4 at all. piece of junk and frustrating as can be. Come on Crutchfield, read all the other reviews and stop selling this junk with your install packages.

Pros: none

Cons: if you mod it to fit it still looks terrible looks better without it.

Does NOT FIT

kg from Boston MA on 9/26/2012

1999 Audi A4
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If i could this din kit a half star or no star I would. It does not fit at all it is too big and it bulges from top and bottom. I had to cut the two long trim pieces and super glue it to the back of the stock opening.

Pros: Only pro it was free with purchase wouldn't have bought if it wasn't

Cons:

does not fit

You would think a spacer made specially for Audis would fit their dash openings. Not so.

1999 Audi A4
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I read the reviews of others with the understanding that I may have to do some modification. I received the kit and installed it with out a problem. This was installed on a 99.5 a4. You must remove the trim piece that goes around the headunit and heater controls. This kit will fit right behind that trim piece it does not clip onto the trim piece from the front.

Still Doesn't Fit

Patrick from Portland, OR on 12/30/2009

1999 Audi A4
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just to reiterate, this kit does not fit a 1999 Audi A4 (non-Bose) without modifications. Ended up removing all mounting tabs and using super glue to attach the now flat plastic trim piece to the back side of the console (large) trim plate. This required removing the large console trim plate, gluing kit plate to it, and reinstalling console plate. The result is actually nice looking and provides additional room (countersinkish) for the deck faceplate to fold down (motorized for cd load). Certainly not the 15 min kit install I was hoping for.

Doesn't fit

Kevin from Houston, TX on 10/28/2009

2004 Audi TT
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have to agree with everyone else. It just doesn't fit my 2004 Audi TT Roadster. Based on the other reviews, I wonder exactly which Audi this thing is supposed to fit. Very frustrating. The only redeeming factor is that, since it was "free" with the purchase of the head unit (as part of an installation kit that included that included a wiring harness, antenna adapter and factory radio removal tool), I didn't have to pay extra for it. So, I paid what it was worth -- nothing.

Pros:

Cons:

Does Not Fit, has to be modified

Jorge from Phoenix, AZ on 5/27/2009

1998 Audi A8
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The faceplate is about 1/8" too large (on all sides) to fit the opening. It has to be filed down. When you file it down, you need to be careful not to damage the tabs the grab the faceplate in place. This is easier said than done. I did this with a dremel tool, and unfortunately, I slipped, scratching the face of it. I bought a second one from Crutchfield so I can try again.

Cons:

Had to modify it

John from CA on 10/11/2008

1998 Audi A4
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I eventually got the faceplate to work pretty well in my 1998 A4, but only by filing and cutting. At first it seemed slightly too large for the opening, but I finally realized that it would fit if it could be recessed about 1/8". To get it to do that I had to file down a little bit the support flanges that protrude from the back. I also had to file a little bit of material from the top 1/2" or so of each side of the plate. To make it fit with my radio (a Sony) I also had to cut away completely the larger of the 3 tabs that protrude from both the top and bottom, to keep it from buldging out. That turned out to be ok, though, because the other 2 smaller ones held it in place just fine.

Argh

Avylon from Seattle, WA on 9/1/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

On the surface, the Scosche face plate kit looks like it will be a good deal. I tried it both with and without the spacer. I settled on using the spacer. It essentially 'fits' the facia, but not tightly. There were still 'mold nubs' on the face plate that I had to pare down with a knife. Not too bad, I mean, it's plastic... it just would have been nice if they paid attention to the aesthetic detail at the factory. The biggest issue is that the mounting tabs don't really fit around the head unit and cause a bit of a bulge. The plate isn't snug so when you do anything with the head unit and bump, or even slightly touch the plate around it, you have to readjust the Scosche plate. It pops out on the side or in the middle showing rather noticeably that this is NOT a stock or even smooth aftermarket job. On the surface, once it's in place, it looks passable, but it's a high maintenance deal. I was hoping for a more finished look and result. I can't say I'm impressed. After readjusting the plate after bumping it, if you don't get a full on twitch when things aren't as professionally 'finished' as they could be, it gives the passing illusion of 'nearly meant for my Audi A4'. I do thank Crutchfield for throwing it into the package at no extra charge. I would have rated lower if I'd had to pay for it.

This trim kit does NOT fit the Audi TT Mk1

Bubba from Houston on 8/7/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This trim piece is simply too large to fit the opening of the Mk1 Audi TT. I tried trimming it, but gave up and ordered a custom trim piece.
