Well it may be authentic, but that seller is full of crap he thinks its limited.

L-Tuned Parts; Double Din Face Plate

You'll like how this looks in your car; I have it and if you didn't know any better, you wouldn't think that my headunit wasn't there to begin with.

the JDM is alot nicer, IMO...

circuit city sells a DIY one sort of, by a company called METRA, I believe.. doesnt look as good, a few people said u have to modify it if your double din is motorized...



edit: I'm not COMPLETELY sure, but I believe the JDM piece has the button & the cubby hole switched around...

The ebay one IS the JDM one in this case, as is the L-Tune. And yes, there is only slot for one button and a cubby hole. Check the audio sticky for modding ideas on how to incorporate 3 buttons into the JDM or reallocate two of the buttons to the coin holder on driver left. Metra one doesn't look as nice, and there is a new one that was mentioned from a few days ago that is for now unknown. FYI the JDM is not an exact colour match either as the colour tone is slightly off.

Yes, that is the JDM piece that is on that eBay listing and in the L-tuned listing.

I have it as well, and I located the heater seat controls to the coin holders.
The colour, as Johnnysks says, is *slightly* off. Most people won't notice, but us Lexus IS'ers likely could see a slight difference. However, the texture is the same as the surrounding dash, and the rolled inner edges, while they do present a miniscule gap around the faceplate of your stereo, do indeed allow the motorized faceplate to move in and out.
