Want a new radio

I currently have a 06 G6 Sedan with the 6 disc changer installed. I would like to be able to listen to my iphone in the car since I have a 2 hr commute everyday. I have been looking around on this site and crutchfield trying to find a new radio. I noticed alot of people are installing the replacement info center by metra. I think it looks very ugly. Do I need that? The only thing I reason use the info center for now is fuel range and oil life but could always track that by my overal mileage. Will a double sized dash open radio fit? I have been looking at Pioneer FH-P8000BT. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also if anyone has some pictures who could recomend any steros it would be appreciated.

well there is the Metra, but there is also this Scosche here. http://www.scosche.com/products/productID/483

but I think on that pioneer it may fit, says so on the site when you plug in the car information. Just you might need a mounting system for it anyway. not sure.

Did you end up installing the pioneer without the info center? I really want to do this because I think the info center is ugly too and I don't mind losing the features but will this work properly??
