OK, everybody here seems to know a lot about everything, so I was wondering.....I have a 2000 neon, and I want to take the factory radio/tape out, and replace it with this nice little CD/MP3/Radio deck. But, the dilemma is that the factory installed system is about 3 times taller than my new system. So, when I take out the old one, how in the hell am I supposed to get my new one to look good in the car. is there like some kind of kit that will fill in the empty space and sort of hold the new one in the middle or what?
In my 97 Tracer, I had to get a mounting Kit for my pioneer deck. It ran me about $80 at the local auto electronics shop. There is a great website to order this stuff (my kit was $40 on the website, but I wanted my stereo installed for the road trip I was taking the next day).
I can't remember the name of the site offhand though.

Just goto Pep Boys. I hate them, but they'll have it for the exact car and it will run you just like $10. I had the same problem in my Buick, unfortunetly I couldn't solve it entirely because of some molding issues...
Now, the 18th kit, and the 19th kit, are both for a 2000 neon. (IE:what I'm trying to install in)
But one is 'DIN' and one is 'ISO'
I've googled, and from what I've read, I can only assume that it doesn't matter which one you get, because they will both work. But, I need some verification on this. Does the mounting kit depend on the stereo? I'm so confused.

Kevin, DIN and ISO refer to the type of radio and the mounting. Non-DIN units were around 10-20 years ago, and only the lowest of the low end are non-DIN for the most part. I found this page which might explain it better...
