your car has a din and a half opening for the radio. you can get a single din radio and it will fit no problem.

you have to remove your stock radio to see it. it is the space that the radio is occupying right now. Do you want to keep your stock radio for any reason?

why not swap your current radio for the stock radio with a cd player?

Get a regular CD player with a Scosche kit. What I did, looks good.

The velcro to the upper right is for a cheap Philips MP3 player
