Will the CQ-RX100U fit my car?

I have a 1998 honda civic ex 2 door coupe and was wondering if the Panasonic CQ-RX100U can fit my car. Also, where will i be able to get the mounting collar that fits my car. This product is discontinued in many places and i dont know if i will be able to get a collar that will fit my car. What do i do?

    Thank you etirbynnor for clearing this up for me. But, do you think that i would be able to find mounting collar and trim ring in a store in town like best buy? Also, is that site you linked me to reliable?

    Thank you again etirbynnor for another swift and helpful response. This certainly has cleared things up for me. I think im going to try Best Buy out first and if they dont have what I need, then ill order from crutchfield or sonicelectronix. I just hope that everything works out fine with no issues.

    Thanks again!

Hello l0s18,

The Panasonic is a standard single-din receiver and should fit your Civic OK. You can probably get a vehicle-specific dash kit which will include the mounting collar and trim ring. Try this site. They will also have the appropriate wiring harness to eliminate the need for cutting or tapping into your vehicle wiring.

Hope this helps.

    Hello again los18,

    It's sometimes possible to find generic mounting hardware at Best Buy. They do keep some products on hand for their installs, so it wouldn't hurt to try. In my experience they are pretty high-priced though. Even something like an amp wiring kit is way overpriced when compared to online prices.

    Here's a review of Another online store that sells car audio is Like Best Buy, they stock generic and some vehicle-specific installation accessories. Unlike Best Buy, their prices are reasonable. is also a good place to buy. Their prices are lower than Crutchfield, but the customer service is not as good.

The body style was the same from 1996 to 2000 for the Honda Civic. Are both of the Civics similar in body style as in they have the same number of doors? Not sure if a wagon or hatchback would interchange with a regular 2 door coupe.
