Double Din Stereo

Has anyone installed a Pioneer double din stereo in the G6?
My 6 disc changer just broke and i am looking into this.
I have heard that you need to buy the Metra 993303 and hook this up and then buy the double din bracket as well. Since the the Double Din takes up the whole space you will then need to hide the DIC unit somewhere.
Im not sure how much truth there is to any of this, so i was wondering if anyone has done the this?
Please Help

yha that's true you need the metra kit to retain all the different warning sounds and keep your info, mileage, oil life, ect... then the mount kit to hold the HU in place on the dash, so your thoughts on the subject are correct. if you havnt looked around much here's a mount kit for cheap

and if you want info on the metra kit just search around you'll find plenty of info.

Do you know off hand if I will need any other adapters?
I wish GM would have made a chosen a good product in the first place then I would not have this problem!
Thanks

The metra kit that keeps your dic is very cheap looking, and it doesnt match the rest of the dash. Also the led is only one line and different from the stock h-u.

I preferably went without the metra kit, and just got the chimes add on.

If you buy through crutchfield.com , they will give you all the mounting hardware, attenae adapter, and wiring harness for free. And the chimes adapter or metra kit for half off.....

And if you want the metra kit to keep your DIC info

http://www.crutchfield.com/p_1209933...e.html?tp=3486

If you buy your double din from crutchfield they will give you either adapter for half off plus free instalation hardware...

The first thing I wanted to do was change out my head unit for a double din Kenwood DVD with nav, but the convertible chimes when the top is fully secure and stowed and the radio diplays warning about the rear cover where the top goes etc....

Anyways, The Monsoon system sounds incredible for stock so I did away with the idea of the TV in the dash and just wanted to integrate my iPod. The whole dash has that red look and nothing looks quite right in there other than the factory radio....

I'm not positive to be honest. I'm pretty sure you can still do it without the chimes adapter. But for safety purposes i would spend the extra $40 and get the chimes PAC adapter.
