Decent product, but basic

Written By SR, LaCrosse, WI on Thursday, August 27, 2015

It gets the job done, but doesn't looks as good as the new head unit does in the car. Sort of distracts from the awesomeness of the fancy new touchscreen or whatever head unit you're putting in. There are better kits out there if you're willing to spend a bit more.

Pros: Definitely works. No doubt about that. Gets the job done and in the end, that's what matters.

Cons: Overall aesthetic is pretty bland.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits great! Exactly as I expected it to be and the Crutchfield team was there to answer any questions about installations.

Basic and adequate. Fill panel/storage bin is flimsy.

Written By Anonymous, Massachusetts on Tuesday, August 04, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The install is easy but fit and finish leave something to be desired.

Pros: Lines up well with factory hardware.

Cons: Gap between radio and filler panel. Mounting hardware is a bit flimsy and cracks easily.

Wrong parts

Written By Scott H, Pennsylvania on Monday, July 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The package came with the wrong parts (two right brackets) which i had to modify to hold the head unit properly. Not sure if that affected the fit but there was a small gap at the bottom of the bezel that had to be filled in.

Cons: Wrong parts

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It works, but did not meet my expectations. you can see space between the radio and the adapter. It looks pretty good, but I am a very demanding person with my car and I'm not 100% satisfied.

Pros: It is the same color, but it is not perfect.It notes that it is not a computer manufactured by Volkswagen....

Cons: You can see space between the radio and the adapter.

Cons: None

Written By JasonC, Utah on Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This dash kit was really easy to use and install, looks great in the dash of my VW CC, the arc of the dash kit doesn't match up 100% with the factory surround piece but it is not very noticeable unless you are really picky like I am.

Pros: Great fit, easy to use, looks great

Cons: off by just a little bit

Looks Nice

Written By Jake D, Washington on Sunday, March 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks Nice. I put it in my 2008 R32 and it matches the factory dash almost perfectly. At the top its a little flat where the factory dash is bowed slightly, but I think it doesn't look any worse than with the factory stereo installed.

It fits..

Cons: None

Easy install, alignment is good enough

Written By Jason, Atlata, GA on Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product made for an easy install in my 2007 Jetta, replacing the factory stereo with a double DIn Pioneer 720BT. Everything went together easily and fit right into the dash opening. The finish of the face plate is a perfect match for the factory dash materials, but the top side of the face plate shows a little bit of separation from the factory trim piece above it. I notice it when I look hard, but otherwise it is perfect. My only other issue with the product is that it is 100% plastic. I didn't strip any screws putting it together, and it seems completely stable, so I'm not concerned by it, but I was expecting a metal frame with a plastic face. For a free installation kit, though, I'm not going to complain.

Pros: Free, easy to assemble and install, finish matches factory trim

Cons: not a perfect fit, but very close; all plastic construction

great fit.

Everything fit well but, the side brackets that screw into the face...are built poorly. With just a little tension, the screws cracked the brackets. Little cheaply made. Be careful, don't tighten that much at all.

Written By Zach, Philadelphia, PA on Saturday, July 05, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good color match but poor fit. Top isn't flush with car trim and when using as a single din, there is a gap between stereo and shelf. I can see through the gap and see the wires. Very poor product.

Ps I have a 2009 vw rabbit

Pros: Color is ok

Cons: Not flush with trim and shelf gap makes it look cheep

This adapter works well and is very secure however the visual of how it fits is not exact it is a little less than  a great fit...but it does the job and serves its purpose

Almost perfect

Written By Chris, Westminster, ca on Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It fitted nicely. Although, I would like it to be more snug. There is noticeable gaps between the kit and the unit. Another thing is the unit will not sit flush on the kit and is slightly raised. If you played around with it you might be able to have it sit flushed, but it did not bother me. The kit itself fit snug in the OEM slot. Although there is a very noticeable gap on the top edge. Either the top of the console area is curved and the kit is not, or vice versa. but the gap is noticable. Maybe my kit was warped. but that's how i got it. I don't really mind. Overall I am okay with how it looks.

Pros: -does its job -oem finish -easy to install -near perfect fit

Cons: -noticeable gaps ( but bearable) -gap on top ( mine might have been warped)

Fits like a glove

Written By PeteM, Saint Paul, MN on Thursday, March 13, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This VW receiver kit was used on a 2008 VW Jetta and the fit is spot on. I also own a 2009 Jetta with the stock radio in it and it is very difficult to tell the difference between the two. If you are replacing your stock VW double DIN radio you will not be disappointed with this trim and mounting kit.

Pros: Looks like it came from the factory.

Cons: None.

Works Very Well!

Written By gyakusetsu, Denver, CO on Friday, February 28, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits the opening very nicely and the color/texture matches the surrounding OEM panels almost perfectly.

The variable depth screw holes make for a very good flush-mount setup that looks extremely clean.

Easy to install. Attach the new head unit, then use 4 existing screws to mount the trim piece to the dash cage built in to the vehicle.

The opening is the exact size of a double-DIN unit and doesn't require additional trim pieces that will most likely come with your head unit, which makes the install even cleaner looking. Units that are just a touch screen look very impressive.

Pros: color matches, variable depth mounting.

Cons: not a very strong piece of plastic. Needs to be shored up in the back to keep the mount flush on the bottom. Some stronger bracing would eliminate the problem.

Written By Wade, Reno, NV on Friday, September 13, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product is of acceptable quality and directions were clear. As noted by others, it's free with your order, so not a lot to complain about. This is an example of why I buy from Crutchfield. Finish was not quite what I wanted, so I ended up ordering another install kit from different vendor. the bottom tray was a little out of round. But it would have worked fine if I decided to use it.

Pros: Free. The Best Value.

Cons: Finish was slightly less than perfect match with OEM

Great Kit for Jetta

Written By MatthewB, Charlotte, NC on Thursday, July 18, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First of all it's free when purchasing a HU with Crutchfield, so it is hard to complain about it. But I think the match to the rest of the dash surround was perfect and it is sturdy. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is the bottom tray was warped slightly so there is a small gap from the bottom of the HU and the top of the tray.

Install note: You do not use the DIN sleave with this kit. The HU screws directly to the kit. First time I have encountered this but it works well but now can't slide HU out when I add amp later. Will have to dismantle dash again.

Pros: Finish perfect match Sturdy construction

Cons: Slight gap between tray and HU

Written By Jeff, San Antonio, TX on Thursday, May 16, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It does what it says but not well. What passes for a cage is two plastic sides and I could barely screw it all together properly (creaking cracking sounds). Also because my headunit was secondhand it didn't have screws and the ones included with this kit didn't fit. The frame around the outside was slightly too big for the unit and I had to put some felt to fill the difference.

Pros: My new headunit is mounted finally.

Cons: Plastic. Old Scosche dash kits had metal cages, much better.
