    It looks long enough, that it may fit the screen complete. The best thing to do is buy the screen and try it. You will have to end up buying one any ways for your install. Just make it the first thing you buy. I do not like taking the screen out of the casing. I felt that the EBY701 looks like something Dodge would put in its car. I wanted the HU look, not the intergrated looks. Even my dash top screens still use the EBY701 bezel even though the buttons are removed.

    That screen you linked to is basically the EBY701 but with a custom bezel. It may work. Email the guy for the measurements of the bezel, then measure yours and compare.

    The issue I have is the vents above.. I obviously don't want to lose them so I don't see how I could get a screen to fit..

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks
    According to crutchfield.com your opening is in fact double din. So the double din lilliput will go right in without any mods.

    You can go with something like the ebay link you posted unless you want the molded in look. If you want the molded in look I would go for an 8" WS which looks like it would be perfect for the space. If you want plug and mount go with the 7"

    Thanks for all the replies everyone! I'll probably go with the ebay link (the Lilly already set in the Double Din housing) if my wife gives the green light.. This is her car or I'd be doing it for sure..

    One off topic question.. We are having another child so the car seats will be on the outside (currently have one child and carseat is in the middle).. That means they won't be able to see the screen as they are not in the center..

    I was thinking of getting headrest monitors or a dropdown monitor but wasn't sure how exactly that would work in a carpc environment.. It would be awesome if I could have GPS on the main screen and their movies on the other screen(s).. Has anyone done this? I searched for "Multiple Monitors" but didn't find many hits..

    Thanks again!
