Kuda phone mount!!!

So I decided to upgrade my iPhone mount I had before to a Kuda!

What I started with:


That DVD HU is getting replaced with a HU that has iPhone connectivity soon.

What the Kuda mount looks like:



Now Kuda USA will sell you a mount for your specific phone type, however I did not like their gawdy-looking universal iPhone mount, so I just bought the mount base.

So I went searching for a nicer-style mount to attach to the base and I found one that I liked at Wal-mart for $17.00. It was an iphone cup-holder style mount and I just used the top of it. I did have to cut a hole in the Kuda to get the iPhone mount on it.



Back side of the mount:

Side view:


I went with this style iPhone mount for another reason too - I don't have to take my phone out of the case to put it in my car! And I can also use this mount for just about any other type of phone as well.


The kuda has a tab that you have to put behind the radio bezel - only way to do that is to take the stereo out and un-bolt the right side of the bezel with a 7mm socket.

And finished product:



There is also a screw that comes with the Kuda that mounts inside the glovebox




Here is the HU that will replace my DVD HU:

Kuda's website:

They also have it for the 05-07, 08-11, and the MK3!

It is a well made piece, and it is wrapped in real leather as well.

Here is the updated stereo, the only wire showing is a USB cable that connects to the back of the HU now:





And here is the rest of the stereo:



Current stereo:
-Pioneer High-Def HU
-Alpine 6x8's in the front and back
-Alpine 4-channel AMP
-Alpine 500w amp
-Rockford Fosgate 8" sub in SVT enclosure
_Rockford Fosgate Amp wiring harness with fusebox
-LED's

What do you guys think!
