I have the same model faceplace installed in my 01 b5. the bottom of the radio hangs over the climate controls by about 1/4 of an inch. I was thinking of trimming it up, but I realized I couldn't cut a straight line to save my life. So I left it alone. Another thing is the two upper radio locks will lock into place and hold the radio in, but the two lower ones will not latch due to the faceplace overlaping the climate controls. I'll take a picture next weekend when I am home and post it up to show what I am talking about.
