    i had this unit installed by best buy, and the top was sticking out of the dash like every DNX or double dash kit i have seen, There was even a thread on here asking if it these can be flush mounted in the dash kit. one day I was so sick of how it looked I took apart the dash kit to see if there was any possibility to do so AND THERE IS!! all ou have to do is loosen the screws that hold the unit to the dash kit and slide it back till the top corners are flush, or at least more flush that before. The tricky part is getting it mounted back in the dash cause it requires a little more depth and there is a bunch of wires and stuff in the way, just keep stuffing it in, and make sure the srews are tight or the unit will sliide out again. But I finally made it fit and now it looks like a stock unit, muck better, and a little less glare. hope this helps someone that has this unit.


    Before the tp corner stuck out about an inch from the dash, now a few milimeters, Next upgrade i'll move it back even further.
