    Default Which double din adaptor?

    Can anyone help me identify the exact double din adaptor I need to colour match my Veccy properly please. Having just ordered my Alpine IVA-W505R I want to make sure the surround is perfect for it as the single one I ordered before didn't match.

    Spent about an hour on the phone to two different companies now (Nexxia and Caraudiodirect) neither of whom can find a perfect match for the colour in a double din adaptor (Caraudiodirect use the Connects2 ones and apparently what they had there didn't look the right colour to match my dash when I emailed him pics of it).

    If anyone can point me in the right direction to a perfect match (I know there's a few people done it already on here), I would be very grateful indeed.

    Mine's an '03 SXi and I bought a "gunmetal" single din adaptor a while back when I first swapped the radio out and that didn't match, so unless that wasn't gunmetal, I'm fairly sure it's not that.





    Incidentally, can't speak highly enough of the guy at caraudiodirect who has been superb throughout and seriously gone out of his way to try and help me, highly recommend them if anyone is looking for audio gear.

    Any help (or part numbers) really appreciated.

    Echo the comments about CAD, top firm.

    IIRC the colour of your console is 'metallic charcoal' - but I don't think I've ever heard of a colour matched double DIN fascia. All the pictures I've seen have had black adaptors...

    Thanks Matt, but I need a double din one, that's a single.

    Have just phoned CAD again and ordered the VX13A so fingers crossed, its the right one

    Sorry mate, that was because I looked at the image in the first post, and saw the single DIN unit fitted.
