lookin to buy a new HU,, ive been hearing the flip outs dont hold up very well,, are there any sturdy and reliable flip outs out there,, or should an in dash be better for durability?

i prefer indash. to me, it seems like flip outs seem to have more things to can go wrong.

If you have the room ? go double din. I have both. No probs yet. But is had **** load of problems from the old Kenwood flip faces(**** ribbon cables). Double din looks cleaner.

x2. If you dont have the rooms there is always custom work to be done. But will always look alot cleaner than a flip out which I think looks ugly, but that is me.

in dash...motors will break after period of time on the flip outs the only time flip out is necessary is if u want a single din and dont want to fabricate for a double din

It is good that you are with that custom attitude. Most people will be scared to do such a thing and get a simple indash kit that has no challenge. When something dont fit, and you make it fit, that my friend is called custom.

Flip outs are notorious for ribbon failure.The constent in and out is just like bending a piece of wire back and forth.I have an n1 that had ribbon failure.But I found a guy that uses Military grade ribbon to upgrade.As for indash that would be me first choice, but most of the time it has to be fabricated for most vehicles.
