    Default Help with Fitted double din head unit...

    Hi guys, i have just treated myself to a Alpine IVA-W202r double din radio, tried to fit it and the cage will not fit in the dash, so gone to my local car audio shop to be told a double din radio will not fit in a vectra, as the hole is just smaller and there is no faceplate available... is this the case or are they talking crap...

    any help would be greatas at the moment i'm well p****d off...

    cheers in advance..

    i did, and it is ok as long as you think about the cable routing, as with a double din unit the is no space behind the radio, so popped the screen and the heater controls out... made the job much easier..
