View Full Version : Just finished 1din to 2din swap in my 98 a4 (Pics inside)

04-14-2011, 02:16 PM
So I was getting really bored with my car and I figured if I spruced up the inside it might change how I was feeling. Glad I did! I just finished my 2din swap and have the Pioneer AVH-p4300DVD installed and working nicely. I have never heard the Stock AMP and "SUB" work that way before! Still have plans for the Headliner and door jams ect... The swap is about 97% complete. Just waiting on a few small items like E-Brake handle and shifterboot trim. Looks good I think, so here are a few pics.

Well I just followed the DIY and got all the center console pieces from a user on the forums for $250 shipped. The head unit is $600 but cartoys.com will price match and I got it pricematched from a ebay store for $380. Plus the extra $50 bucks on amazon for the metra dash kit, Bose wiring harness, and antenna amplifier. Some modification is required though. So roughly $700 but I think it was worth it because I have a renewed love for my car. Sorry it took me so long to respond. Been busy with Euro Treffen prep and classes. If you need any more info just ask.

How do you like the AVH-P4300DVD? I'm looking at the same hu for my car.
