I just have to share this, when I bought my LC it had an aftermarket SILVER front-loader radio in, I just cannot stand the silver against the black and grey dash/interior.

Now the whole whoo-haaa about this is that it is fully integrated with an ipod/iphone even android and bluetooth, meaning as per most newer car models, the ipod stays hidden, and you have full control into your music files from the radio's control, it charges the ipod, switches it on/off etc.
I got spoiled with the technology in my Santa Fe and just can't resist having this for such a low price in my older vehicles too.

Being particular and having all cabling etc hidden and as less as possible clutter to fly around during over landing, I found these replacement radios:

This one is for most double din (that's the vehicles with the double space for the radio, some with radio and shelve) dashboards, and works well for older Toyota models.
