Attempting to install my new head unit (Kenwood KDC-MP925) in my 01 gti. However, it refuses to go in all the way. So my question is, do I need a dash kit for this, or is it simply being blocked by the enormous amount of wires located behind it?

Re: Question on Head Unit Install (Shadowaic)

no no dash kit man i know on my alpine cva1003 i had to trim the black plastic piece on the far back of the radio console so that it would slide in about 1/2"-1" more try that , it might be your problem, just look in and you will see it, and also try to run the wire either behind the pocket or down towards the heater controls

There is room on both sides of the opening at the back. You'll have to tuck the cables down either side of the dash to get it to go all the way back. It is tough but do-able.
