Double din for my Ep3 - a couple of questions

I'm looking at putting a double din in my Ep3, but I need to ask a couple of questions for those with a bit more knowledge of the subject.

Are all double dins a standard size? Basically, how do I find out which ones are compatible with my car?
Are they plug and play or will I need something other than just the head unit?
Recommendations? Been looking at Sony or Pioneer.
Thanks.

Double DIN headunits sizes can vary slightly, the aperture in the EP3 is large enough not to worry.

The EP3 Type-R requires a harness adapter, either Autoleads PC2-68-4 or Connects2 CT20HD02 will do. No steering wheel controls to worry about.

Depending on the headunit you chose you may also need an aerial adapter and maybe a DAB antenna.

Here are a couple of more vids.

Good choice, a change from the usual touch screen units.

I know mate, I wanted something that was simple but had some decent features and sound. Ticked the boxes for me

I fitted a Kenwood double din in my EP3 years ago, the problem you have is the hole is not big enough to house a double din flush with the bezel fitted. I got round this by using a belt sander to shave a few mm of the to and bottom of the double din bezel trim so this then fitted nice and flush.



Only problem is I am not sure if you can buy the head unit bezel trims separate so you only get one chance at this! Just to add I fitted mine oem style in the hole without the silver trim panel you have in the pictures.
