Not as much worried about it fitting, I can make anything fit,,I am more worried about the wiring connections. Went by circuit city and they had one in stock. But they said that it will not work in the GTO, go figure. They also do not list an adapitor? Not that I can find,, I just want to make sure that I can wire this thing up and keep the steering wheel controls.. Cant find the stuff to do it!:confused

That thread that I posted explains how to use the steering wheel controls. Go to Pioneer and download the installation manual. You don't have to have a harness to install a Head Unit. If you aren't comfortable with installing one without a harness, I would suggest that you take it to a real car audio shop.

I am comfortable with doing all the work myself, before I get into it, Do the wire colors match with the new radio to the old wire harness? Will I get in trouble doing it that way? :seeya:
thanks

I have the AVIC-D3 in mine now and it is awesome! Metra just came out with a $25 double din dash kit for the GTO's. Most big stereo shops go thru metra for thier kits. I will post some pics in a bit. I didn't hook up the steering wheel controls tho. I got sirius satalite and ipod cable. Just hooked up to stock speakers. Sounds so much better than blaupunk HU. Nav works great too. I also turned up the stock sub amp in the trunk. All in all I am very pleased with it. Got it for $830 at trader village in Houston.

Nice kit.... A cool touch would be to get the suede that's in the doors, shave the kit a little and wrap it in either the door suede, or vinyl matching the interior. Just my .02. I like it none-the-less.
