Default Double Din Kia Rio

Hey guys, I know there is a bunch of audio build threads on here, and trust me, I've looked at them. I'm just wondering if anyone has upgraded their stock head unit to an aftermarket double din unit? (I don't have the UVO ....which is why I want to upgrade! haha)

Just wondering if anyone has tried this Korean Auto Imports

Or is there any others on the market yet that I haven't found?
Has anyone come across kia rio wiring harnesses and connections to keep your steering wheel buttons to work with an aftermarket head unit?

Did you try Crutchfield: Car Stereo, Speakers, Home Theater, LCD TV, Digital Cameras

I replaced my stock head unit on my old F250 using a harness and sleeve supplied through them. Crutchfield: Car Stereo, Speakers, Home Theater, LCD TV, Digital Cameras

Sometimes you will sacrifice the stock steering wheel controls when going after market.

Im also trying to change the stock radio with something that will fit a 2 DIN space. The problem is that the Rio has a unique mask, its not a classical 2 DIN space like in Kia Ceed for example. The display and the buttons are separated with the mask and therefore it should be changed as a whole. JR0B13 you know what I'm talking about. We would need something like this: CS-K023 SPECIAL CAR DVD WITH GPS FOR KIA K3 / Kia RIO 2012 products, buy CS-K023 SPECIAL CAR DVD WITH GPS FOR KIA K3 / Kia RIO 2012

And check this out: Bekijk hier alle originele accessoires. Van styling tot comfort.
Scroll until you see a Pioneer unit fitted in the car.

And finally look at this post. Its in dutch and I don't understand anything although Google Translator helps a lot but this guy managed to change the radio. Audio Installatie Kia Rio - Kiaclub Nederland - Pagina 5

I've also looked at every topic mentioning the aftermarket radio options

Thanks Fran9127! Exactly the kind of help I'm looking for! Much appreciated
If only I could buy that trim molding without the Pioneer double din included in the price in that second link you sent me...

Yeah that would be great. I copied the product number and found the product on Pioneer site but it didn't have a picture or a price.

I would love to get this myself, but I dont't know...
