I want to put in a Double DIN stereo in my G6, and was wondering if there is a way to retain the Driver's Information Center for it. I know there are ones for single DIN. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I haven't found anything yet either. I want to put an In Dash GPS in and I like the larger face without it coming out and blocking the air vents in the center dash. I will keep looking. I may settle and get the smaller DIN radio eventually.

You need a metra kit and to extend the wires and stick is somewhere else, as in glove box or center console.

Metra 95-3303B

This kit will solve all your problems for those that have been searching all day like I have. It forces you to use a single Din but lets face it, there isn't much more the double Din can offer that you cant get out of a single these days.
So far the cheapest i have found this is $230 off ebay but Ill keep you posted if I find it better. Model is "Metra 95-3303B"

Boomer I was told that I have to purchase the Metra 95-3303B if I wanted to keep the DIC, but double Den should work, and the cost of it is ridiculous at $229.00 to $300.00, I might just go without the Metra because I never used the Steering wheel controls anyway.

Why not just install it yourself? All you do is colour match the wires and connect them together.
I wanted to try doing it myself but I am not sure how to open the car up to get at the places I need. I wanted to run it to the armrest bin and just keep it inside. I have a good idea on what I will do to secure it in place however I keep looking at my car trying to guess how I would do it.

It's pretty easy to get at. There are threads showing how to remove the radio that you can follow to take the dash apart. From there its only 2 or 4 bolts that hold the center console in. There are clips that hold the silver piece around the shift to the console. Once you start to pull the console out you have to disconnect the wiring from the traction control button and 12V outlet. Then you can just pull the console out, drill your holes and connect everything.

I just got the metra kit and stereo from crutchfield. When you buy a stereo, they cut the cost of the metra kit 50%. Got everything installed yesterday morning. Much better sound than the stock stereo.

Do you mind sharing the link to the discounted Metra kit?
