Doesn't work with motorized faceplate!

Crutchfield customer from Norfolk, MA on 9/2/2019

2006 Porsche 911

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The dash kit looks very nice. However after I got my radio installed I can't open the motorized faceplate to access the CD or memory card, which I really need to. Called Crutchfield support and the answer was "well, ummm, you need to trim down the thickness of the bezel so that the faceplate can open". Since they already knew that why wasn't that noted when I ordered things. Crutchfield used to have very realistic installation notes that talked about potential issues so you knew what you were getting into ahead of time. I really don't want to have to spend several hours pulling everything apart, modifying it, and hoping it actually works, but it appears I have no choice. If I had known I would have bought a radio without a motorized faceplate! Not good Crutchfield.

Pros: Looks pretty

Cons: doesn't actually work with motorized faceplates.

Fits perfectly and almost a perfect match to my 07 Boxster. Looks like it came from the factory. Just make sure you have everything hooked up the way you want before you push it all the way in. It's hard to get back out if you ever need to pull the radio out again.

Crutchfield customer reps eliminate the need to ever walk into a BestBuy. Seriously, they are not that good. They helped me select the perfect Alpine stereo, and everything I needed. Everything! This dash kit, not only fit perfectly, but you literally can't tell it isn't original Porsche equipment.

Fits, with modification

Erik from Denver, CO on 5/14/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

"Works" is how I would describe this dash kit. In order to get it to fit with my Pioneer AVIC-W8400NEX, I had to clip off 2 tabs on the side pieces, as well as grind away some of the top 2 hold tabs. Otherwise, it does in fact hold the radio in the dash, and does look decent. The color is slightly off, as others have said.

Pros: -Inexpensive -Fits in dash, mostly -Factory console sides fit without touching

Cons: -Requires some trimming -Does stick out slightly after installed.

Great casing for the money. Color match was slightly off from my C2S interior. Wound up going with the Metra kit which has inferior brackets/casing, but a better color match for me.

Pros: solid unit for the money

Cons: color match off

2005 Porsche 997 Install

Crutchfield customer from Kent, OH on 1/15/2019

2005 Porsche 911

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed this on a 05 Porsche 911 997. Replaced original PCM with Pioneer AVH-211EX. This fit very well. Matched the slot with perfectly. Fit around Pioneer was perfect. If you have a 2 DIN unit (as I was installing) you need to cut off tabs from each side of the kit. I cut these with a fine wood workers cut of saw. You could most likely break them off and shave them down with a razor knife. Or use a sharp chisel. Put one side on stereo unit with screws, put the face plate on, and then put the other side on. On my 997 it was a bit tricky to get the unit in straight. The guides in the dash have a gap in them and the unit tends to drop down and miss the back guides. You'll need to play with this and push on the front bottom of the unit so the back doesn't drop down. The unit with face plate fits perfectly flush with the HAC control unit below; just like the original PCM module. You may want to take a picture of the original PCM fit so you not guessing fit. All four tabs on the sides of the kit click into the slot in the same paces as the funky PCM tabs fit. Use a flat head screw driver to push them in if you need to remove the unit.

Pros: Fits great, looks great.

Cons: Black looks good but would be better if it was the OEM interior gray. Instructions are useless but not much to figure out.

The trim piece matched well. However the side pieces are cheap and it is difficult to tighten the required screws without distorting the plastic. Also: This unit can only be installed once! There is no provision for releasing it once snapped in. Be careful or order two!

Had to do a lot of sanding on the side to get it to slides into the dash (used for the Kenwood DDX9904S may be different for your radio). the face is a good color match and looks great once you get it in.

Pros: color match alignment to existing dash parts

Cons: really tight fit had to sand the sides down

2006 Porsche Cayman S

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The only thing I ended up using was the bezel itself and I had to significantly modify that. The mounts were really terrible. The retention tabs hit my radio and even if I could have made it fit, I would have a real hard time ever getting it back out. Soft, thick plastic mounts deformed when tightening the screws too.

Pros: The bezel itself fits the car OK and the paint match was not terrible. Low cost.

Cons: The plastic mounts were too thick to fit the head unit. Poor retention system. Bezel did not fit the head unit and required significant modification.

The screw holes deform when screwed. Hard to remove once installed. Requires a plastic spudger to push the tabs in. Otherwise, looks good for the price.

Very good kit, works great and easy to install. I got the silver one and it's very very very close to matching color it's a small bit lighter than the original color, but you have to kinda stare to notice it..

Pros: Looks good installs easy silver super close color match

Cons: removing the tabs so that the player isn't basically perma stuck.

Since there are many dash kits on the market going up to $200 dollars I was happy to read the reviews of this one and it was exactly right. My installer said it fit perfectly and he was surprised how good it was for the price. As the person just looking at it from the front...The silver matches 99.5%. It's great and and great value.

Pros: Easy to install Perfect fit Grey color matches almost perfectly.

Cons: non

Cayman s install. How do you get the bezel to stay in place. There is no room to attach the side brackets?.
[ Dwayne  Apr 30, 2019 ]

A
It was a really tight fit in my 987.1. Make sure the side plate screws are flush with the plastic mount or it definitely won't fit. I ended up using petroleum jelly to get it to eventually slide in (still very tight). One tip...there is a locking clip on the top of the left side bracket. I would snap this one off before installing if you ever need to remove it in the future. I was able to pull mine because I forgot the gps connection but this clip was almost impossible to push for release once the unit was installed. I snapped it off before pushing it back and it holds just fine on the other three.
