I need to install my custom navigation to my car. I planned on doing it myself, but I'm too busy and lazy to work on it. This really shouldn't be a difficult job, but I would like to goto a shop, who has worked on the IS before and installed navigation successfully.

Anyone know of a good reliable shop who has good reputation for doing an awesome car audio/video work in the nothern jersey area?

I bought all the equipement and materials needed to do a stock look a like navi install. I have the pioneer avic-80dvd. Since I have everything that is needed, and it really shouldn't be a hard install for someone with good knowledge of our car, I'm thinking maybe $150ish for the install?

Thanks, Mike, I will give dtc guys a call. I assume they have worked on Is300's before?

Any partiuclar person I should be looking for in those places? Which one is better?
I'd say go to mobile innovations, they did dt1313's car, which was featured in magazines back in the day, and they also had a car in the beginning of 2F2F.... ;)

Damn, MonkeyPee didn't realize you lived 10 minutes from me.

Come up on the 87 and take the mclean ave exit and im like 10 seconds away. When you got time you should come out to the meets, you'r only a hop skip jump away.

Ya man. Next meet, I'm definitey going to try to make it.

I'll call around and find out the prices...I'm just hesitant about best buy and circuit city because i have heard some horror stories...

I'm in albany now, and this area is whack. The road is nice though..
