    Are you able to access the vehicle's factory menus with that head unit?

    Looks awesome. I think this is the unit I will be buying or whatever the newer model is when I end up finally buying.

    Has anybody replaced a JBL head unit?

    Crutchfield was of the opinion that nothing fit my vehicle last time I checked. Is this due to the amp? Would it be possible to put in a new head unit if you swapped out the amp?

    Change car stereos for something else and you'll find lots of models. I chose in-dad DVD receivers for example.

    Nope. "In-dash DVD receivers" are a subset of the car stereos category. It is telling me NO car stereos fit my vehicle. If I switch it to a non-JBL version, I get options.

    You have yours set for a Gen 4?

    I selected your year and stereo and was able to select the same stereos that I selected for my Two without JBL & Nav.

    Oh, okay. Did you get my year from my profile? That was my old car. Got a 2016 Four a couple weeks ago, haven't updated the profile.

    Still curious if anyone with a Gen 4 and JBL knows anything about upgrading the head unit/amp/speakers.

    The sound through BT isn't great and trying to navigate music on a USB stick is pretty atrocious.
