I found this on eBay...https://www.ebay.com...8.c100290.m3507(Sorry about the huge link, my work PC wont give me all access)I measured the dash space vs the radio size and its really close. Radio 3.7x8.0/ dash 3.5x 7.75. I'm going to check with my guy at Audio Express and see if this is compatible. I don't know why not.

That looks awesome! Only thing I couldn't live without though is the head up display not displaying radio stations. Course, I might not use this as much with a better radio... lol

I think I'll swing by the salvage yard and grab another dash panel that I can work on the hole (In case I screw it up) This is the best looking possibility I've run across. The radio also has a 60 day return window so if I cant make the dash panel work I'm not over the barrel for the money.

A few minutes with a pro always brings a wealth of information...

 

I stopped by Audio Express today and was enlightened by the manager/head installer. I trust these guys to the bone because they have done 3 installs on 3 different cars I've owned and each time the result has been amazing.

 

I showed him the eBay unit I posted previously and he immediately replied "Thats not gonna fit." I asked him why and he immediately segwayed to "What are we trying to do?" As soon as I mentioned my discontent about finding an appealing single-din unit for the car, he replied frankly that it could easily be done if I was willing to make some sacrifices. Such as?

 

He says there are more than a few double-din units on the market with 6.1 screens...this gets closest to the dash hole size. The dash face is not as big a problem as mounting the unit in the dash frame itself, which in turn dictates the face position.

 

If you are willing to ditch CD/DVD drives and go with digital media, the overall size and depth of the unit takes a big drop, allowing more room to work with. Usually by ditching the disc drive you also throw out motorized face, but some units still use them for security and detachment...this also has to be given up.

 

So 6.1 max, no CD/DVD, and no motorized gizmos. I can live with that! So I will be taking the car down there next week to sort out some choices and prices. Further info will be coming.
