Looks good, but little bit fascia not fiting right on the upper corner. I alsko bought pioneer with GPS, but I'm not sure that there is a good fascia for replaicement.

I believe this is the best one available besides the Honda one which is very hard to come by now.
It is not a perfect fit, will have a play about when the weather gets better, needs to come out again anyway to attach a USB cable and AUX connecter to the back of the unit
as the AUX and USB ports in the armrest wont work now unless there is a adpter cable for it to plug into !

Just fitted Pioneer SPH-DA120 today. Got a great deal through Halfords sale and discount scheme at work.
Then got connects2 facia kit on eBay.
Fitting was a pain really, bit of trial and error and getting the whole lot back in was tight!
Got my 9 year old son to help (a lot)
Pretty decent interface and good sound quality.
Radio reception is really bad but I donít remember doing the final aerial connection!!

Yep, never connected the power for the antenna amplifier!
All done and working perfectly now
Just note that if anybody is fitting this type of stereo, the gps antenna must be connected up to set the date and time as thereís no function in the stereo
