Default Installing an aftermarket head unit in a 2003+ Accord EX?

I'm just wondering how this works since they're not setup with your usual pull out factory junk head unit. Do you mount it in the storage area under the stocker & a/c controls?

You have two options...You can get a install kit and take out the factory screen and replace it with a head unit..The kit gives you a few AC controls and what not...Heres an example of someone whos done it. I just can't find the link to get the kit.

Or you can replace the storage bin underneath with the use of this kit

There is a huge price difference in the kits.....i work at best buy and customers always are in awe when we tell them how much. The kit that replaces the factory screen and everything is around $200, but the kit that replaces the pocket is around $20. Again, this is how much best buy sells them for, i dont know if there are any other places where you can get them cheaper, but i do know we have to special order them from scoche.

When you keep the factory unit at top and install with the cheaper kit, what happens to the unit at top. Is it just there for visual or does it still serve a purpose. I assume the AC controls and all that would still work, but does the volume and the other audio options work still or is it obsolete?
