Youll have to confrim it but I think the double dins dont sit in quite right without cutting into the steel bar behind the dash or mounting it sort of bottom out a few millimetres. In my opinion Id go a cheapo brand like Eonon, and with the $500 or so saved, you can buy the GPS add on and a cat module for the steering wheel controls.

My top pick (if price wasn't an issue)

Pick number 2

This one would suit the interior of an AU really well (specifically S2,3 Black interior)

yer i found there wasnt much information on that, there is somewhere but i was thinking hook it up to a line in on a head unit then the head unit will split it into front rear and subs, if u look enough i think u will find a module that will avoid a headunit all together

but with a car pc you can do much more than a jvc unit u can connect a car pc to the obd port and if u get more advanced even tune it on the fly.
