    Double DIN Installs, Dallas Area

    I've noticed several posts about DDin installs in caymans and boxsters in this forum, especially about the cars with BOSE in them. I won't bother you with advertising, besides this lol, but I live in the Dallas area and I'ld be glad to install anything you want in Caymans or Boxsters.

    Bose is not a problem. I just did an AVIC D3 install on a Cayman, with all factory speakers retained except center channell, which could be retained with enough work, no rewiring required. The BOSE amp of course cannot be retained, although I'll leave it in for the computer's sake. You will need a new amp, especially if you care to retain the door subs as few radios are going to like 1Ohm speakers. New speakers are fine, just not required.

    I can guarantee that it will all work correctly. I can do the Handbrake Bypass on almost any double din. I can add bluetooth ipod, etc, for little to no extra cost.

    And, our client was a member of your forum, so you can get feedback. I also took pictures for reference.

    I can't promise I'll be THE cheapest deal. But I can promise I'll be right there with the cheapest and way under a shops price, and I can promise I know what I'm doing in your car.

    to contact me, email trevorwhopkins@gmail.com or call 214 783 8592.
    I can help you find the dash kits and harnesses if needed too, or pick out a particular head unit or amp.

    Trevor did work on my Cayman. I highly recommend him. PM if you have any questions.

    Re: Double DIN Installs, Dallas Area

    Not what I was planning for my first post, but I feel obligated to to share my experience. I hired Trevor to install a full audio system in my 2006 Cayman (sound system plus) and, putting it nicely, things did not go as planned. I had to stop Trevor mid-job after a number of problems appeared on the car and I took the car in for service. Multiple holes had been drilled under the dash, one of which caught the main wire harness, and a hole was drilled completely through the gateway module. I had my car back after a week of repairs and an expensive bill.

    Trevor said he would reimburse me over a period of months. I haven't received anything yet and hope he keeps his word.
