I'm looking at installing the AVIC-D3 in my 2008 300 and was wondering firstly if it will fit and also if I'll need the same mounting kit, harness, etc. as older models. Thanks for the help in advance.

Well I pulled out the stock deck and tried to slide the AVIC-D3 in but it wouldn't fit completely, I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but there doesn't appear to be enough room.

What did your 08 come with as a stereo ? was it the mygig unit ? If it's a double din unit it should fit . You gotta move alot of wires to squeeze it in as it is tight . Love my D3 in my 06 as well .

did you have the stock nav unit or the stock c/d player? If you had the c/d player then you have to remove the white plastic piece from behind there. Once that is removed there should be more then enough room.

I had the stock cd player, I'll go give it another shot and see what happens, I was looking at getting all the install gear from crutchfield, they seem to have everything I need but is there a better place to go?

sounds cool, just take a look to see if that piece is in there because that's what is probably taking up the room. Once that is gone there should be plenty of room to add your Pioneer without issue.

Well I took it all apart again and there were no white pieces, and rather then try and explain what's going on here I'll upload a couple pictures, tell me what you think.

ok.......I am looking at it and it looks normal like everything should fit.....since you still need the mounting kit I would say that you might have to wait to get that because some decks protrude forward once installed and that gives them the needed room. Just how far back are you placing the deck?

Well I was trying to push it back as far as it goes and I put the cover back over it and the deck barely fits through that and it protrudes out at least a couple inches.

unfortunately it probably will protrude....I have a new Eclipse nav deck that looks factory and sits flush like the factory nav....however, before I had that deck I had a different Eclipse deck and it protruded outwards and didn't look factory at all. I think that it will fit because compared with other vehicles there is a lot of room back there. You really can't be certain until you have that mounting bracket so you can try to line it up with the screw holes there. I don't know what else to tell you, I have a mounting surround that you can have to test it out if you'd like. Just the price of shipping and you can have it.

Just an update, I ordered all the parts from crutchfield today and the ipod cable from best buy so all I need is to get the nav bezel which I should be able to order on Thursday.
