Since it comes up time and again I thought it would be cool to post a picture of your radio, head unit, in dash or even carputer for other members who are thinking of changing or swapping. I ask that this remain a picture thread so please post the specifics of your unit, and keep all comments about other radios and members radios to yourself or your post may be subject to deletion.

I will start

Hey Todd hate to jump in like this but I just wanted to know where's the best spot to mount the rear view cameras. I'm planning on getting a Kenwood 5120 and the camera is kind of big that's why I'm asking.

Can anyone tell me where I can buy a replacement trim piece for the center dash I bought an after market dvd nav system and need that piece. I called the dealership and they said $249... I asked him if he was doing drugs... I need to know if there is an aftermarket vender that i can buy one from. Any and all help will be appreciated.
