hi all,

I'm probably going to end up getting an AVIC-D3 and was just wondering where exactly I could get the JDM double DIN dash kit? I refuse to order from the my.is store because of a bad experience earlier so any tips would be great.

By the way, I've already checked l-tunedparts.com w/ no luck :(

you have to customize it yourself, the jdm kit has room for ONE slot.
do you have a auto? or manual?
if you have a auto, you can keep the passenger heated seat button on the dash kit, and the driverside you can relocate where those change holder things are to the left of the steering wheel
just a idea.

Does the JDM kit have a place for the heated seat buttons or do you have to customize it yourself?
I got my JDM kit from Carson Toyota.

I kept my traction buttons on the JDM kit, and the heated seats I relocated to the change holders, just left of the steering columns.

Whats the best kit that would keep the heated seat buttons in the same place? Some car place installed my double din so Im not sure what kit they used.(looks kinda cheap though, not the smooth stock material on the IS Dash).Any idea where I can find the Carbon Fiber Double Din piece by itself.(Ill give a good amount of cash to anyone who can find it and ship me this piece:chill:

I have the d3 and bought the kit as well... because like you, I wanted it to look oem and flushed. Unfortunately, the d3 is a little bit smaller and you are going to end up with extra space or gaps around it.... if you don't mind that, then it is the next best thing after a custom kit.
