The ones I've seen have relocated the climate control to the storage bin on the lower console, or replaced the CD caddy, freeing up the top console for a double DIN install.

2003S is right.

Toss the CD caddy.

Move climate control down there.

Radio gets replaced with your new nav/radio system.

A fellow forum member, trieullionaire, sells a great kit for double din installation:

Genuine, OEM items in Euro Motorspeed store on eBay!

Here is his thread on the subject:

Recent Install - DVD Navigation


Best of luck,
