Move HVAC for Double DIN

Hey everybody! This is my first post after lurking for a while here.

I have a BMW 323i since last year, the 1999 version, and I want to improve bits here an there.

For starters it currently has a radio player with ejectable screen, that doesn't fit properly and sticks out. I tried finding a radio player with bluetooth connection that fits well but couldn't find any that occupies 1 DIN so I'm going for a double DIN setup.

But in order to do so I need to move my HVAC down, and I've been looking at HVAC relocation kits but I can't figure out exactly which one I need. I have attached a picture of my current setup.

Do I need the single stripe one for the buttons or do I need a different one?
Does the HVAC really fit down there? The space looks smaller..

If you people could help me find the right part I would really appreciate it!

Attaching curent setup and what I intend to get

I just did this myself - the HVAC definitely fits

This is the bracket I got, because of the usb connectors - https://www.jandtdistributing.com/pr...19278474805305

You'll need the "individual row"

Keep in mind, there's several different brackets out there - OEM and Aftermarket if you dont want/need USB.

That is the "individual row" style. Not "single row" style.
