Did not fit my radio
2005 BMW X3
The faceplate arrived on time and fit in my dashboard very nicely. My issue is that the faceplate did not fit around my radio. When I called Crutchfield regarding this they said their record shows that the faceplate would not fit any radio that had a flip down face which my Alpine had. This was never mentioned in their website ad for this faceplate. Crutchfield promptly issued a refund.
Pros: Fits dashboard nicely
Cons: Did not fit around my radio.Crutchfield response on March 30, 2015 It's true that stereos with fold-down faceplates won't work in this car, but it's not because of this installation kit. It's due to the dash configuration and limited space for a new stereo. Our website warns customers about this when they enter their vehicle information, but it's easy to miss. This is one of the reasons we always suggest customers give us a call or chat with us before placing an order, especially for car stereo gear. It often works out better for everyone if one of our experts looks at the details to make sure everything will work.
