    I am planning a system for a car, and the dash kit is as follows:

    I'm stuck on what are the two pieces in the front for?

    bmw?

    those 2 pieces screw to the stereo, and the dash kit. You can see there is no lip on the kit for the stereo sleeve to bite.

    Ok, so if I understand this correctly:
    - the parts circled would be held in with the overall trim plate (one of the two notches)
    - and holes on each of the two smaller pieces would be where I screw in either the HU directly or the sleeve (and then the HU into the sleeve)

    Does that sound right?

    Sorry if its confusing all other dash kits I've seen for one car are a single piece.

    you wont use the sleeve, the stereo will have holes that line up with those black brackets..then the whole thing will screw into that front plate..

    dont trip man, just get it and youll see.
