I put this dash kit in my 2003 Porsche Boxster. It isn't a perfect fit that I hoped for. The radio has a little bit of wabble instead of fitting snuggly. The lower adapter for the climate controls on the other hand has a good fit.

Metra 99-9605B Dash Kit

Crutchfield customer from Buffalo, MO on 11/27/2018

2002 Porsche Boxster

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

I got this to install a Sony XAV-AV5000 in my 2002 Porsche Boxster. This is a double din radio going into the single din dash location. This kit makes it very easy to install. Very good directions for the most part. Everything worked perfect on the install until I went to slide the unit into the dash. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because, as you can see from the picture #1, there is a widening of the locking band for the screws to hold it together on both the top and bottom. This sticks down into the way of a steel plate that runs through the bottom of the Boxster dash, as seen in picture #2. The solution arrived at, after consulting with Crutchfield tech support, was to remove the screw areas so the band was same height, as in picture #3, then use a long (36") hose clamp around the whole band to secure the locking band on the radio. Picture #4 shows the band loosely installed, then #5 & #6 show it tightened. With the band secured, it easily slid into the dash and picture #7 shows it installed. Overall, it was very good fit and easy to do, except for the band part. I still highly recommend it as anyone who is doing this install themselves should be able to make the slight modification. Would really be nice if the manufacturer would make the modification themselves.

I couldn't have installed my new head unit without it. It is a great fit and I wouldn't hesitate to use it again in the future. The instructions are fairly good, just be smart and read through before you start cutting anything. I've never worked on anything in my 911 or replaced a stereo and it worked first time, you can do it too!

Everything fits like a glove, although the harness bit is kinda weird. I couldn't finish the install due to a wiring screw up (no fiber optic adapters) but all the parts and pieces fit like gloves. Looks good on the dash.

Excelllent value.

David from Cambria, CA on 2/11/2018

2000 Porsche Boxster

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

This product is an excellent value. It is very well thought out and engineered. The parts basically fit well in my Porsche Boxster and made the transition from a single din to double din tolerable. The challenge for the kit is to fit a large variety of head units. In the case of my head unit, a Pioneer, it was necessary to use a dremel to modify some of the parts. The modifications were by and large minor. That is the only reason I gave four rather than five stars. It is really five stars for value. I would do it again with the understanding that some thinking about and modification too the parts may be necessary.

Pros: value; well engineered

Cons: some minor modifications with a grinder, file or dremel may be necessary depending on your head unit.

Trimm matches porsche 996 dark perfectly, but had several shortcomings. Trim is too tight, needed to shave material to make it fit right. Mounting screws was barely long enough to work. Support bracket also needed to be modified in order to fit porsche 996.

Pros:

Cons: Had to shave material to make the trim piece for. Screw were too short. Support brackets did not work in the car without significant modification.
