I have been on the fence for 2 years I found a Metris in my area in my color so I bought it. 2018 Black looking to upgrade the radio right away(have a pioneer spa120 app radio from my old van laying around). Add some lighting, LED, roof rack and anything else to make it my own.

Welcome! Sounds like you know how to swap out the radio, but be aware you'll need a dash bezel kit, wiring harness/interface, and antenna adapter to pair your Japanese radio with the German van. The Metris stereo wiring is virtually the same as a Sprinter van, so you can look up Sprinter adapter info online. Crutchfield.com is a great source for interface info.
Be sure to get an interface that supports steering wheel controls (SWC), if your van has them. Also, you'll likely need a new mic if you plan to use voice commands or Bluetooth phone integration. Most replacement stereos have a 3/8" mini-phone jack mic input that doesn't support the OEM stock built-in mic.
