2016 model radio unit dimensions

Hello. Can anyone point me towards the dimensions for the DAB version of the touchscreen radio unit for a 2016 500? I'm trying to work out whether one of these would fit....It's a Sony XAV-AX3005DB .

TIA!

Its just the FASCIA that is 'oversize'

Re: 2016 model radio unit dimensions

I remember reading in a well known car magazine that most manufacturers dealers could fit a DAB adaptor kit for 200. I owned a Vauxhall at the time. My dealer hadn't heard of this and quoted me for fitting an option kit for similar car that was available from the factory. Head unit and a DAB aerial was the least of my worries. 2k didn't appeal. I'm happy with a USB for music and plugging in a mini DAB radio into my Aux in on my Panda. Same applies to a 500 Lounge, all you need.
