Exactly what the title says, does the Scosche or American International kits fit better than the Metra kit? The Metra kit works ok but leaves the middle vents loose, if any others are better I would go for it myself.

IMO the metra is the best one by far, but it scratches easy as shit. the scosche one i also have doesn't fit as tight and is harder to snap into place for me. and my double din didn't fit at all in the scosche but it did fit into the metra.

yeah they all fit about the same and aren't perfect. i like the metra one the best because of the body line through the middle of it curves around the opening rather than cutting through it like the scosche one does.

It does scratch extremely easily. Oh well, will stick with what I've got.

My first metra fit like crap. Then my 2nd one fits a lot better. I painted it gloss black so I cant comment on scratches.
