I didnt use a dash kit with my f90bt. The only piece you will need is the small bracket that attaches to the back of the double din that will grab the stock slide rail in the dash (to keep the unit from sliding around)

The double din is a tight fit, which is why you shouldnt need the kit. I had to dremel the top of the cd player opening to get mine to fit.

i used the 5817...got it for 12 dollars shipped from soniceletronix, i had to cut a good amount out of the dash panel to get the double din to fit(avic d3 in my case) you also have to make your own brackets. its not to bad to do there are a few good writeups on here to guide you through it
