Metra says they will make a kit for our cars with oversized radios if they receive requests. Here is the e-mail just shoot an e-mail to get it in production.

techsupport@metra-autosound.com

this way we dont have to get custom dash kits made anymore. Post after youve sent an email.

You need to realize that not getting a response in a half hour does not mean people don't care. No reason to posts again.

They said they havent received any requests and it was very easy and the tech responded first thing this morning. I sent it last night. I'll ask to see how many requests they need.

Well, here's what the guy wrote to me:

"There are no plans to make a kit for that car at this time. We may have a kit for that car some time in the future, depending on how much demand there is for it.

got the same reply...

S4SPEED, did you email them in advance and let them know that you will be advertising the guy's email on Audi Forums?

This "demand" you want they require, should be a lot more organised...


*on the side note, however, who would be interested in a few dashkits? I'm getting my decks installed within two weeks and will be stuck building a custom dashkit (really didn't want to do that to the audi [headbang]) but if there is a few people that would like to get one too, i might as well get the guys to make a few! my email is... veilside350@hotmail.com

They won't build one. I've dealt with Metra for years and that is their standard reply to an inquiry. It's extremely rare when they've built a kit for a car more than a year old, and when they have demand has been low causing a discontinuation of the product.

well, since I am going to be custum building one, why doesnt everybody who needs one email me at Veilside350@hotmail.com and i'll get back to you guys as soon as I get a price!

Bryan emailed me already... anybody else?

Ill go custom to get it soon. I'd like to see slot on top and holes for gauges on bottom, since the space is so big.

i haven't measured how much u can fit in the OEM factory spot, but i got two items that must go in...

clarion vrx835 and a clarion dvd player... i might be able to fit a 1/2 din eq or a 1/2 din centerchanel speaker...

but like i've replied to s4speed's email, i don't know if the shop would make indvidually custom dashkits... i'm just offering to share some of the knowledge we'd come across with fooling around with my dash and "mass produce" a few kits...
