Default any good audio shops?

im currently deciding if i want jump into this group buy for a double din head unit. if it matters its 7" Touch Screen DVD/Navi/Bluetooth/Ipod Ready Headunit. no name unit. the price is very attractive but... i been having one problem finding a dash kit that fits my car. the one kit i do know of is ugly and expensive. so i was wondering is there a good audio shop that does installation and can fabricate a dash kit. lastly be able to maintain the steering wheel audio functions. thanks in advance..

Ask for Mark and tell him Mike with the Red Lexus GS sent you. They do it all and great work!

There are some aftermarket bypass harness's that allow for steering wheel stereo control retainment for Toyota, if the harness is similar to Camry, you will be ok.

is this in the LS forum or the audio forum? I want a double din unit for my CLK but what kept me from getting one was the lack of a dash kit. A company called Scosche makes all sorts. check them out.

i have it in both right now to see if anyone knows anything. i had no responses so i decided i might need it to get it fabricated locally. they have a dash kit for my car but...they charge $100+ shipping for it. it looks ugly!! its by a company called beat sonic. scosche and metra doesn't make a dash kit for my car unfortunately.
just waiting for the group buy to be over so i can get it installed :P i dont know who but its gonna be one of the guys mentioned above.

this is what the beat sonic looks like. i prefer it to be flush.
