Scosche Double Din kit installed:

I had an american international kit before and didnt like it, this one however fits much nicer and allows the mototization to work without needed to be modified.

just in case anyone else is swapping their radios and wanted to know the kit that fits so far the best.

I am sure you enjoy your new radio but man that looks awful in terms of flow. Definitely looks like it wasn't made to be there.

if you saw the other kit, you would agree this one is way better. My issue is there is not a unit, that matches the factory one, that does everything the aftermarket one does.

Ill sacrifice having the kit in there, to do everything i want it to do. Plus the sound from the original radio flat out sucks.

What are you talking about? How does that look awful in terms of "flow"? I, personally, would have to have an actual volume knob instead of the buttons, but it looks good otherwise.

texture doesn't seem to match the rest of the car ... aside from that not bad I suppose.

trust me, when i tell you this one matches the best out of the Metra, A.I., Best Kit, and Schoshe kits.(been there already)

p.s. i dont mind not having a volume knob, we make data interfaces for Can networks, and one is coming to use the VW steering wheel can messages, i do have the Metra on also which requires turning the radio off to use the MFI controls. Which to me sucks. So i will wait till ours is ready to integrate it to the pioneer.

Glad to hear you think that scosche is the better kit. I got one last week as it was the only one available locally. My wife got the metra kit for her speed3 and while it matches the interior color better, the mounts should have been metal, not plastic. My one complaint about the schosche is that the bezel is too dark but the fitment was spot on.

Also, I agree with you on the volume knob. Why bother when you have steering wheel controls? Admittedly I was very apprehensive about swapping out my RNS315. Yeah, the screen was tiny but everything worked pretty well, the radio was clear and overall the unit was snappy. Its been a bit of an adjustment to move to something else but the sound quality is way better.

What unit do you have? I enjoy my new appradio but my wife got one too but I think she might be better of with something more 'standard'.

how do you get that info on your stereo?
Appradio2, ARL, Torque and an ODB2 BT dongle. Its mostly just for fun, but I do run pandora, google music, tune in radio, google maps etc to pretty much replace all the features of my RNS315.

The unit was $499, but it can probably be found cheaper. You can buy an MHL adapter kit for $15 - $30 to connect your android phone and skip buying the pioneer kit which is $100. If you have an iphone everything you need comes with the unit cable wise. I don't know about the iphone for software but for android you'd need ARL which is $30 (expensive but worth it), torque is $5 bucks and I got my ODB dongle for $25 I think.

So ~$600 for just what you would need. That is excluding the dash kit with wiring harness, CAN decoder for vehicle sensors and the decoder for the steering wheel controls ($150-200 if you want that). Maybe they can be found for less, I didn't really shop around.

Here is a video clip.

i have the avn-8400

It has its own little quiks, but a solid performer in my eyes. I have the app radio cable also on it.

hmm.......
Which scosche kit is that? The one on that is on their site is the one I have and it looks like everyone else's. That one does look a lot nicer but I'm keeping the RCD510, at least for now, and feeding it into my processor.

Not a fan of the texture or look. Maybe if something was added to the side or the piece was wrapped in vinyl etc it would look better. I like that torque app on the stereo though. Looks a lot better than my phone.

Where do you find the steering wheel control decoder? I haven't come across anything.

I tried the Axxess ASWC (manual said it would work, website said it wouldn't) and it didn't work. I already had the pac-audio C2R-VW2 so I got the SWI-RC to go with it. You could probably just buy the RP4-VW11 if you want all the same features. I haven't looked around but there might be other options.

Hm, pricey indeed. Thanks!
