Our take on the Alpine KTX-VW8 Restyle Dash and Wiring Kit by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Keep your factory look and controls
This Restyle package lets you install an oversized Alpine navigation receiver with an 8" screen while keeping your factory look. The package contains a dash adapter that's been specially designed to make the Alpine's big screen look right at home in your Jetta or Passat.
Plug it in and go
You'll need to hardwire your new Alpine to the car's parking brake, but the rest is easy. The included wiring adapter plugs directly from the Alpine receiver into your vehicle's factory wiring harness — no extra splicing or soldering needed. The package also includes a steering wheel audio control interface — no programming necessary, just plug it in and go. Warranty: 1 year.
Note: This Restyle package will allow you to control the Alpine receiver with the steering wheel audio controls in your vehicle. It will not retain the factory Bluetooth functionality on your steering wheel, including SYNC and hands-free phone calls. It will not work with factory Sirius and XM satellite radio tuners.
Note: Sorry, Crutchfield cannot ship Alpine products to Guam or Puerto Rico.

Alpine KTX-VW8 Restyle Dash and Wiring Kit Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
In-Dash Restyle Systems: The Alpine in-dash navigation receivers with an 8" LCD touchscreen will not fit a standard Single-DIN or Double-DIN dash opening. To accommodate this large screen in your vehicle's dash, Alpine offers a line of In-Dash Restyle System packages specifically for these receivers. Alpine's In-Dash Restyle Systems allow the Alpine navigation receiver with 8" LCD touchscreen to fit seamlessly into select vehicle dashes. In-Dash Restyle Systems are designed to cosmetically match the shape, color and texture of the vehicle's interior.
Compatibility: The Alpine KTX-VW8 In-Dash Restyle System allows seamless integration of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation head unit in select 2011-up Volkswagens. This In-Dash Restyle System will not retain the factory Bluetooth functionality, or factory SiriusXM satellite radio tuners. Compatibility as of 2/5/2013:
Note: The Alpine KTX-VW8 is compatible with Volkswagen factory audio system, including the Premium Fender amplified system. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.
OEM-Like Appearance: The KTX-VW8 In-Dash Restyle System has been specifically fitted and engineered to fit select 2012-up Volkswagens perfectly. It comes with a specially formed OEM-grade, high quality/high strength ABS plastic radio housing that is color matched to the dash. This allows the unit to precisely fit not only the vehicle, but also the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver. In addition, extra care is taken to match the factory dash's shape, texture, and color ensuring a more OEM-like appearance. Unlike traditional universal dash kits, the Alpine In-Dash Restyle System packages include direct fit OEM-like brackets to ensure sturdy support and accurate positioning of the radio in your vehicle's dash.
Vehicle+Radio Harness: This In-Dash Restyle System comes with a vehicle+radio interface module & harness for simple installation between the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen receiver and your 2012-up Volkswagen. You get all the necessary harnesses and adapters in the box to install the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver in your 2011-up Volkswagen.
Note: The vehicle+radio interface module & harness contains a single Molex connector which plugs into your Volkswagen's factory radio harness. On the other end of the harness is a 16-pin connector (power/speaker) and 22-pin connector (camera/swc) which plugs into the back of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver. In addition, you will need to make a hardwired connection between the supplied vehicle+radio harness and your vehicle's Foot brake (Yellow/black). The vehicle+radio interface module & harness also includes an antenna adapter which plugs into the Volkswagen's OEM antenna port and the Motorola antenna port on the rear of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen receiver.
Steering Wheel Controls: The In-Dash Restyle System also retains the factory steering wheel audio controls in select 2011-up Volkswagens. Steering wheel controls include.
- Volume Up/Down
- Previous/Next Track
- Answer/End Call
Note: There is no additional programming required.

Why did you buy this?
I have the X008U from another vehicle, and needed this setup. I dont need the wiring as much as i need the front fascia and side mount pieces. [ Jason Sep 15, 2016 ]
