again, i'm gonna say dooooooooooooooo it.

i've played around with the unit, features per pricepoint you can't go wrong.

you can customize the illumination to match the interior.

i'll hook you up with the install. you're car would be the 5th IS300 i've put a screen in the past 3 months.

my buddy has this in his celica. he says its pretty nice. compared to my Panasonic unit, its got some nicer features but maybe not as nice overall quality he says.

Do you need a trim kit Denis?

ya. sound quality, fit and finish quality etc. you will need a trim kit to have this installed in our centre console's. It can only replace your current CD/Player Double-DIN slot. The trim kit matches the double-din fitment and IS300 contours.

I got this deck and I absolutely love it.

Best $800 I spent on my car so far.

$1k seems pricing for a D3? I got my DNX7100 off ebay for $1k 6 months ago, and that does so much more than the D3. How are D3 pricing on ebay today? Should be WAY less than $1k.

well Denis knows what my opinion is on this. panasonic is not bad, but i don't like the execution of their menus. kenwoods are definitely better now, but still not a fan of the garmin nav. looks "cartoonish"

Sorry, I was in a hurry. My pet rabbit was at the emergency vet last yesterday. She passed away over night. RIP Dutchie. You were loved.

D3 is a good option if the price pt. is low enough. If the price is close to the other models, then the D3's feature set falls behind too much.

Guess this thread is about dead, but I just picked one up from Crutchfied's outlet (just google it). It's an open box, but brand new for 699. It came with a free backup camera as well. They do not have a harness (not sure if anyone has one that werks) so I had them throw in a (free) civi harness so that I can splice a male civic harness into the dash instead of the radio itself.
