    who has an 8" in stock?

    fitting them into a double din might be tough...you'd have to see if they were any wider than the 7"s...nevermind the height. you could probably do it without the housing
    rebuilding carpc... kinda..

          way too big for a double din. There's a double din concealed behind this...



          Remember, it's a 4x3, and the 16x9 7" are a tiney bit larger than the double din.

                does anyone know the size of a double din off hand...unfortunately, I don't have my car nearby. I live in NYC.

                From looking at a Mazda thread, they said doubledin was about 7.5 x 4.2 x 7.

                Can that be confirmed?

                I wish I could see an example, I'd rather not cut the dash too much. or have to extend the buttons.

                  you don't have much of a choice in the matter. the 7" lilliput bezel, plain and simple, is larger than a double din...

                    I have a 7" Lilli in my double din openeing. I can tell you that the panel itself (bezel removed) is slightly larger than the opening. The viewable area of the panel is just a bit smaller than the opening. What I did was trim the bezel down to be the same size as the panel itself and then flush mounted it from behind. There is no way an 8" is going to fit into a standard double din.

                        RobieWP... could you measure your screen and give the dimensions of just the lcd
                        that shows the image? Curious if I could flush mount one from behind with minimal trimming
                        of double-din socket...

                        Thanks in advance!

                          do some trig. it's 3 by 4 and has an 8" hypotenuse

                          For my mount in the jeep the screen is taking the place of a double din slot plus a little height.
