Me neither. There's lots of room in that console for toys.
When I went to install my Denon head unit in my '83 UrQ (which I think
uses the same console/etc. as the Coupe???), the bracket in the rear
blocked the radio. I had to relocate it back a quarter of an inch, or
so. The radio still sticks out a little, but not "too" much.
I'm trying to remember how it all fit together; I think this was the
aluminum bracket that cross-braced the plastic center console as-
sembly, and held the cruise control unit? This bracket doubles as
the rear locator/support for the radio. I think...
I do *distinctly* remember my new Denon "DIN-sized" (whatever that
term means...) was too long to fit it "stock". I was quite annoyed
at the time.
