Log since member of the forums from a number of years ago when I had my Corolla T Sport!
Back now as I've just picked up a 2007 Yaris T Spirit - bit of a comedown I know! 😕
Anyway, hoping to draw on some experience. I'm looking at this (cheapo) double din heady it with sat nav etc;
Question is, does anyone have any idea what I may nee in the way of fascia kit, cage etc? I was of the impression this is what I'd need to get extra;
Any clarification would be perfect.

I felt a desire, to upgrade some features in my 3yo Auris. I've got a '13 Icon edition and I was hoping to install one of the Pioneer's toys in it, replacing the default media system.
Not being a mechanic nor the enthusiast about cars, I went to my local Toyota dealer, asking them, if they could fit one in for me. In the response, I got very simple and straight "No". Asking why, they've said "It's part of the dashboard. Why don't you get a new car instead?".
Now, I would like to hear some voice of reason, from real enthusiasts not the sales people.
So, quickly few questions:
Did anybody replace the system in their car? Do I need to do it on my own, not knowing anything about it? Does it break anything in the car, as "part of the dashboard" disappears?
Thanks in advance.
I have used an ISO adapter which came with my fascia (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Toyota-Yaris-2003-2006-Radio-Stereo-Facia-Fascia-Fitting-Kit-Adaptor-/171185407294?hash=item27db72053e). Does anybody know what colour the live feed is on the ISO connector?
Just hoping for some advice regarding a fascia for a double din headunit.
I have just bought a Pioneer AVH-X2600BT headunit for my 2006 Celica T Sport.
I have got the unit in and working great, but there is a gap on either side of the unit, as well a small gap on the top and bottom (see pic below)
After some research it seems most people use the fascia from the original Sony unit - however, my car had the Toyota unit, not Sony, which has no fascia that I can use.
I've had a look online for fascia kit but have been unable to find anything suitable, just the side inserts like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CT24TY09-Toyota-Celica-2000-2006-Car-Stereo-Radio-Double-Din-Facia-Fascia-Panel-/251593503746?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3a94243402
Does anyone know where I can find a suitable fascia?
