Thought I'd post this here as not many have installed double dins on the s60 forum on 04's. Anyone that has installed a double din radio panel where did you get it or does anyone know where to get the best price on one? I saw the one for $102 on Ebay just seeing if there's anywhere that sells it for cheaper...

Great find dougy.
I wouldn't trust that as the stock setup is not a tabbed setup.

volvo_s60turbo why not take a trip to BVV(Boston Volvo Village) It's where I got mine for $60 bucks and its OE Direct Fit. Give them a heads up before you go and they will get one in stock.

Get in touch with John Sharisky at BVV -- he got one for me a couple of years ago. Make sure you tell him you are a SS member.

took the part number from the link and found it on tasca this looks to be the best deal, what do you all think? Im guessing Im going to need a trim surround as well to mount the double din it is a pioneer double din that I bought from best buy as an open box item so it only came with the head unit itself?

Is it by any chance the Pioneer AVH-2400BT? I just bought it and honestly I didnt even bother with the surround it doesnt look TERRIBLE

Sounds good I just ordered the panel from tasca so hopefully it will be here soon so I can install this thing and get rid of the ugly single din panel.

I have the factory NAV system but my HU-850 doesn't play CDs anymore and also all the lights on the damn thing don't work lol so needless to say my options are to find a used HU-850 or go this route but if I go custom do I have to rip out the NAV screen or can I just leave it in there?

lolol.... i would not trust it either...;)



Dougy, the 04's do have a different audio/ccm setup as far as the actual units go. Ours is not a complete unit in one piece. Kind of annoying, actually. I wish the 04's had the aluminum trim too!

And I love your dual gauge setup. I will do this one day. What systems are the gauges for??

i am sure if I can make this work in 04 xc90 you will be able to make it happen in your R...talk about pile of **** in different places optical radio components. but it works perfect now and she is happy.

also the double din plate was bought on ebay as well...worked out perfect.

Thought Id post up the result of my double din install. Saved me about 50 dollars from the adapter i was going to buy and its the oem one from tasca. Wrapped it in carbon fiber wrap from Rvinyl and added a new IPD boost gauge. Very pleased with the result looks a lot better than my old single din which looked out of place.
