Default Alpine CDE-172BT - radio door closes?

Does anyone have an Alpine CDE-172BT installed?

If so, can you confirm if the radio door fully closes without dash modification?

Radio door does fully close, but depresses the volume button as it is shut.

Full clearance *may* be possible with a better install that allows the head unit to screw in perfectly flush without any obstruction from wire harnesses.

Just installed the Alpine UTE-73BT which is the same dimensions as yours and if you used the stock brackets, it will hit the volume knob by maybe 1-2mm, you can bend ever so slightly the side bracket so that the unit sits 1-2mm further in and you're good to go. I had to play with mines for a minute or two to just get it just right.

If you slightly expand the screw hole in the bracket, you can mount the bracket slightly forward on the headunit thus mounting
the headunit slightly further back in the car.

Just installed this and I noticed it as well -_-.....If I close the door very slowly and carefully it won't hit (I need to open it up to connect to the Pandora portion)

I might just make some custom brackets. I had to file the tabs off of the mounting ears so they'd sit flush.
