    Single DIN HU to Double DIN HU is this possible?

    Is it possible to go from a single DIN HU to a double DIN HU on a 2001 Audi S3?

    thank for any replies.

    it is but you have to change all of the centre dash, not an easy task by all accounts

    I went double to single din as there isn't an adaptor available to fit aftermarket double din units... you have to remove most of the lower half of the dash board to get to the cage which you will need to replace and you will need a double DIN climate control unit or you can trim the single DIN unit to fit..

    Best bet is to try and find someone who wants to go single DIN from double and swap bits...

    Further to Tufftyblokes comments, There isnt double din facia to fit. I bought one and had to modify it by scraping and shaping to fit around my pioneer headunit.

    This seems to be one to avoid really, unless you like hassle!

    This is exactly what I want to do. Would I be able to get a double DIN unit in here if I took out the little cubby hole unit at the bottom?
