I ordered some steering wheel controls off of Sewell today, the Lexus dealership wanted $528.28 with tax. I got them for $257.46 that's $270 cheaper. I can't wait for them to come so I can get the new wheel on.

No problems at all, it went super smooth I got a lot of info off of here which helped quite a bit. Thanks I love the wood wheel, my es300 had one and I missed it.

I'm trying to find a wood shifter now to match, I think there about $325 off of Sewell.

Talking Started The Stereo Install !!!

Today I got a Alpine INA-W900 screen with NAV. I ordered the PAC TATO Wire harness/amp turn on, PAC SWI-JACK Steering wheel control module, and a PAC TR-7 parking brake bypass. I couldn't wait to start the install but the cars in the garage for the winter so no rush!

I had to cut back a bit of the factory plastic for the screen to fit.

Why does it look like the HU is closer to the right edge and not right in the center?
Alpine looks beautiful though!

It's not perfect but pretty close, I played around for quite awhile to get it centred as best as I could. The angle of the pic and the light shining thru doesn't help. It will be less noticeable when it's installed. The trim that came with the alpine is a bit to big for the opening and the one that came with the mounting kit is just a touch to small. Looks good tho.

Thanks for the comments.

Did you get the camera as well? Not sure if the 900 has this feature, but the 910 has this amazing feature where it will actually make a flashing square and beep when there's a moving object behind you while you're reversing out. Pretty awesome. You can also standardize the alignment lines so that they are as accurate as possible. Neat stuff! Here's a vidoe of it at work! When I have enough dough, I'm definitely going to try to install this HU
