I hear ya. I bought the car back in 2011 and that had me annoyed even then. Although, it was totally worth it for how good it looks & sounds.

That looks awesome. But will this have any effect on the navi? bluetooth? etc.

I had a stock IS 250. No navigation, no bluetooth lol.

This will add infinite support for navi (whichever GPS software I choose to use on the iPad) .. As far as bluetooth, the Sony radio I'm installing in the single DIN cutout has bluetooth.

I can't wait to get this thing (he's shipping this morning apparently). I plan on having some final pictures posted here that he's taking before he sends it off. I plan on doing a full setup video and taking quite a few pics once it's all installed and running

The latest pics.

The first one is just a small update. Something to cover the lid of the changer guts (which are now mounted behind the A/C controls) and also the single DIN framing with the cutout to run the 3.5mm aux cable (which will be spliced into the one going to the glove box

The second one is a shot from the top of it showing the cutout for the 3.5mm aux cord. The lighting in the picture makes it look really dark. But I know it's matched right (see the pics on page 4 and how close they matched the paint to the buttons). Also notice on the top left of the first pic ... there's the ashtray with the re-located airbag lights, clock and hazard button! lol

It's shipped! Got 2 final pics Rafa sent over which I'll post when I get home!

Sidenote.... That CD changer circuit board being "required" to keep the climate control alive may be a myth. I'm going to find out for sure soon!

This is going to look so insane once it's installed... Given all the extra stuff that had to be done, I'm VERY happy with how it looks and I can't wait for it to get here ... I'll keep everybody posted!

If you go to 2:13, you get a good shot of it in different lighting (before the suede was applied) .. But it's the only spot you really see it in the video.

Now the shipping waiting game

I feel the same way... In hindsight I wish I would have gone without the navi from the start. I'm always using Waze anyways on my phone. The only perk for me really is the reverse cam.

I bought that original IS dash from an auto wrecker and sent it to Rafa. You guys can't install that dash style in place of the Nav? If you can, I'd just do what I did, modify that one, this way if you ever have to turn the car back to stock, you can.

My advice, if you don't need the Air, do the iPad Mini so you wouldn't neccesarily have to move the hazard button / airbag lights into the ashtray like I did lol.. I just needed the air for another application

I wonder if the climate control is a direct swap for cars with nav

It would be too much work for me. All I would do is play candy crush the entire day
