Hey Eveyone, Do you need a mounting kit to fit an aftermarket radio in a '99 323is? My local shop that I use just can't get mine right and I think it needs a kit rather than using the existing sleeve that came with the radio. My face won't flip closed when you turn off the car and the fit looks too tight(Shoehorned). :help

the place you did it must have done a dodgy job, i did it myself for my cd player and it fit in nicely. mine is an eclipse unit.

I have a Kenwood Excelon KMD-X92 Minidisc head unit. The problem is the D Mask flip face mechanism. We were able to solve it though. I also have a Panavice cell phone bracket installed which fits litterally right to the right of the radio. That's what really caused the problem because of so little space to work with. :confused

moving to audio...

and if your 99 is an e36, then you shouldnt need a kit; the sleeve should work fine. My headunit was also a tight fit, but the supplied sleeve worked fine.

If your 99 is an e46, then yes, you most likely need a kit.
