Double Din Advice

Alright Guys,

Looking to upgrade my stereo to a Double Din on my MK6. I have a budget of about 350 including fitting, do any of you have any double din stereos that you would recommend?

I am looking at this at the moment:

http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_265857


Also i went to halfords last week and they quoted me 108 just for the fascia, adapters etc then a further 30 for fitting, i was told to look on the internet to see if it is cheaper that way, not really sure what i am looking for, so any help would be appreciated!

Cheers.

George

There's a company in the US called Crutchfield. They list head units for various cars by by make and model of the car. I don't know if they ship to the UK, but you could view their site as a resource and if they show something that appeals to you and don't ship overseas, you will at least know what fits and can shop for it over there.

DIN = Deutsche Industrie Norm, German Industrial Standard.

A Double DIN radio is the height of two Single DIN radios and allows for larger displays, typically touchscreens etc.
