    Hello, I am looking for a car stereo double DIN that fills the entire location as in this picture. Alpine IVE-W530BT.png

    Hi Kagu,
    Try searching for "2DIN car stereo" or the like from Ebay for example. I got the 2DIN head unit in the end of this post from Ebay. It's an Xtrons Android 8.0 unit. It almost fills the entire hole, but there will remain a small gap like in the picture below from my dash:

    Measure the size of the space in the dashboard and compare with the dimensions the head unit you want to buy. That way you will know if it will fill in the entire space or not.

    All double-DIN units are very close the same standard size I believe. What could make the difference, is a possible bezel adaptor that I think is present in the photo in Kagu’s orginal post. There was no adaptor with my stereo and still the gap is just a couple millimeters in the sides, less so above and below, close enough for me. A possible adaptor should be meant for Copen, could prove hard to find?

    I ordered the car radio I was talking about. I'm a little stressed by one because it is a Chinese model and the other at the waist! If it's good I'll put you pictures.

    Well, I received and installed the car radio quickly to see the result.
    It is a little on the right because of the brackets that the former owner had slaughtered by cutting to put his car radio:mad: and finally as he could not put it he put a cage to make it stand or marks on the plastic:swear:
    The car radio is level with the front panel by the volume knob of course.
    I wish he was full in the front but the result is correct.

    My Copen is a Japanese import and the radio only picked up a couple of channels so, yesterday, I had a Pioneer AVH-X390BT fitted. Looks pretty good and works well. 20180901_152157.jpg
