A flip out will not open in the lower cubby. For what you want to do you need a metra kit that will replace the stock radio. Also your not going to find an indash with those features in that price range. By far the best in dash in that price range are the Valors. I have one and for what you want you will be happy with it. If you really want a quality indash for that money then your going to have to get a used brand name one. I'm not the biggest fan of used electronics though, especially from ebay.

You could always buy a DVD player without the screen like an Alpine and then mount a screen elsewhere like in the sun visor. Just a thought.

yeah hector toofat is right. also ive heard that flip out doesnt work too well in the long run because of the motor being worn out, then you're basically ****ed. so i really suggest getting a double din. there's currently one that has a detachable face. i forog twhat brand tho. but there is one.

and about having the cubby fip thing to "cover" that won't work either. cause everything woud be in the way.

I hope you know how to work with bondo as your going to be custom fabbing it into the lower cubby mount. If you have some skill in that look into molding it into the OEM radio. There was a buildlog of just that on some other forum, I', sure someone here will post a link to that thread, or you can search for it. There arn't too many double DIN installs in a 7th gen. I really hope you didn't just order that without knowing this..
