Q: I need some guidance before making a big purchase

asked by on

I've been looking all over the Internet for guidance, but nobody has any because the S15 still isn't legal in the states. I'm trying to figure out if I can fit a double-din reciever into the dash or not. If you guys could let me know, that would be awesome. Thanks!
My car has an automatic transmission.
