Question Looking for some advice on double din sizes

Looking for some advice

I want to change my stereo and ive been looking on ebay.

the problem im having is the size,the one i have linked below is 100mm x 178mm
this seems the be the norm for double din stereos.
the opening in mine is 100mm x 170mm (2005 WRX UK300)

Does anybody know where to get one of these "cheap" chinese android stereos from that will fit?

Most of those stereos mean you need to trim the facia around the stereo
