It wont fit your vehicle. Even if you do or do not have the Bose system. The AVN6600 is Double din, which means it takes up two regular car stereo spaces and your car, I believe has one and a half din. :(

that'* what I am afraid of, I was looking through crutchfield and it wasn't showing anything being compatable for this car. I hate having a 1.5 din.

there used to be a pretty good pioneer head unit that was 1.5 din

dont worry, just get an adapter kit to fit a din receiver in your 1.5 din

If you just get single DIN us folks have had very good success with Mark from Humount.com. It looks sick when all'* said and done. If you want to stay din.5 though, I'd say stay stock.

Word on those aftermarket 1.5x Din models: I had one of the top of the line Pioneer models put in right after I got my car in 1999. It was good back then, but the technology in the 1.5x Din models has not kept up with the rest of the Din models. They don't play MP3 CDs, and have limited iPod interface options.

I recommend you get a more modern Din sized unit instead. And I say that with regret, because I loved the look of filling the entire 1.5x din hole in the dash with a head unit. It made it look like it was stock.

Eventually it caused me to swap it out for a Din sized unit.

I'm glad you guys sent links, I was looking at the dash last night thinking to myself...this can be done. I don't think it'll be as easy as the link you showed me because the differences of the dashes, right under the radio in the 00'* is the climate control. Maybe I'll figure something out.

I wouldn't go with a 1.5 din product because I just don't like them. To me they don't have the feature(which is ironic since it'* a larger unit) that I like in aftermarket HU'*. I may just put in a flip monitor.

Thanks guys for your replies.
