I had one in my EL, it did/does hit the dash. My solution was the mount the unit further out so it cleared. There was enough screw hole options so everything worked out ok and relatively easily.

I have a bigger problem with the same unit in my BF, it'll hit the shifter unless it's in D.

That would be your only option. Before I converted my car to manual, I was able to use the lower DIN, and have nu clearance issues.

With the manual Shifter, the screen just clears the gear lever, and definately hits the dash where you have circled.

that was one option i considered. I really want to keep my head unit as its very good at wat it does and has plenty of features. Also i only want to spend where i have to.

The original concept was to have a 7" display and run a PS2 to it and sound through the AUX in on my HU. im thinking of modifying the radio souround and the way it sits.

that is pretty much what im gunna do except i want to got he other way around. I went out to my car and in 5th the view will be blocked. Although i wont be using the screen while driving the less blockage the better.

Ive done a quick mock up of what i want. (dont laugh. Its a 5 min job made in paint. Proportions arent right either so ill have to get measurments and check it all b4 i start)

the problem with ur drawing is that you would have to make a speciaa bracket for your headunit as there's only 2 slots and they above that
