    I have a bigger hole in my dash and hated how the single din units looked in it. I am glad you posted some of these for me to look at!

    Double din head units are so awesome! They take up more space, but they offer the driver a lot more features. There are only a few companies that make them well and it looks like you have them outlined here!

    I like to see the use of a double din headset. If there is room in the dash, then you should fill it!
