This mounting kit lets you install a single-DIN (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) aftermarket stereo in your Mini's dash opening. You'll have to take the dash apart to install your new radio, and it's a difficult task — not for a beginner.

Great fit and easy to install.
Great design. Everything fit together and looks great.
Pros: Flawless for me.
Perfect fit. Looks like factory. Radio mounting was a breeze.
Pros: Great look. Substantial construction - as good as the original parts. Perfect fit. No gaps.
Cons: You Tube video did not contemplate the fact that the replacement assembly is actually a little longer than the original and, consequently, the center console MUST be removed (or at least moved back out of the way) in order to get the new assembly correctly into place. The Crutchfield instructions did indicate that the center console should be removed, but it did not say why. I found out too late. Better instructions/warnings appear warranted.
Pros: Went together with no problems
Cons: Directions a little vague
Fits perfectly. I would Highly suggest that you get a media player only though, just because of the lack of room behind the dash. Youll understand when you get in to it.
Pros: ease of use and the money saved
Looks good and gives you a new storage space.
Cons: The opening for the radio is not large enough to front mount the radio or use the radio's trim ring.
Fit perfectly. Matched description.
Spend the $750 for the Harmon Kardon or not? I didn't. For the same money, you can get much better sound (aftermarket). But wait, not so fast, the install and components required to install an aftermarket system are expensive (expect to pay $300+ for parts and another $400-800 for install (I am not kidding about this cost), complicated and NOT to be tried on your own. HINT (you'll thank me for this): place the Bluetooth microphone on the left side of your steering wheel speedo and point it upward); somehow this eliminates the acoustics that make it sound like you're far away.
Pros: Quality product that allows for both double or single din stereo. Stock look is retained
Cons: The top computer is deleted. I am sure there's a way to keep it there, but the ribbon is too short and the installer didn't want to jerry rig it.
Very good product for the price.
Pros: Repositions the AC controls and other switches to allow for a double din install.
Cons: Doesn't exactly match the quality of the original piece being replaced.
Great kit and instructions
Works perfectly, looks factory, which is important considering how much of the dash this kit actually replaces: the WHOLE center stack, plus plugs the holes left by removing the factory radio buttons from the speedo!
Pros: Works perfectly, very complete, looks factory.
Replacing the factory radio is the best thing we can do to our Mini Cooper, and this kit makes it easy. My factory CD player stopped working and is not covered under my CPO warranty. My iPod adapter only charges older style iPods. I did not have Bluetooth in my car. The volume control was in the wrong spot. And lastly, Mini engineers chose to filter the bass to the rear speakers. Needless to say, I had to change it. The upgrade is quite a challenge and is definitely best suited for someone with creativity and patience. I highly recommend the optional wiring adapter to retain the chimes and provide the necessary 12v supplies. I chose to save $100 and install the unit without this. Don't!! It is possible, but Mini does not have a conventional constant 12v power supply to the radio harness, nor does it have a conventional switched 12v ignition wire. I chose a custom install and it works, but I would not advise it, and Crutchfield is acting responsibly by not providing install support. That said, if you buy the kit, you still need to provide an additional circuit for the constant 12v supply. If you do this, I recommend using the Littelfuse Add a Circuit to tap into Fuse 3 in the right foot well fuse box. This Add a Circuit has a fuse for the factory headlight washers if present, and a fuse for the radio.
Pros: It gets rid of the factory radio and it looks great! (with some modification, see below)
Cons: All of the pieces are placed in a plastic bag without protection from scratches. The smooth shiny textured speedometer radio control blank-out panel had several scratches from being rubbed by the other pieces. I remedied this be giving it a brushed finish with 100 grit sand paper using even horizontal strokes. I think it looks nice like this and recommend it. The instructions are OK, but could use some more detail, like: just how do I remove that silly gear shift knob and e-brake handle boo
