    WOW!

    I have the avic D3. I had that whole unit removed to make room for the double din. At first I wasn't happy to lose the top screen but then after going from my CTS to my friends I don't miss the top screen.
    I do like how the pictures look but after already rewireing the whole car I'm content.

    I can post some pics of mine if you would like.

    Sure thing I'll post them soon... Also when I had mine installed they told me that the factory sub wouldn't work. Sure enough it doesn't, they said something about the factory amp not being able to be bypass. It took them four hours to install the unit, they had to rewire all my factory speakers. I did talk the guy into do the bypass so that the dvd player works while I drive.

    I'm very happy with the Avic D3.

    It can be very bright at night though, I guess you can dim it down but I haven't really played to much with it.

    I got mine for $580 on ebay, I see them going for $ 1,000 at stores.
