A double din should fit. I place on in my IS200. Anyhow, if you remove the glove compartment you should be able to see if the amp is behind it and lower to the footwell of the passenger side. Should it be there you'll need to unplug the lead and attach it to an already purchased bypass lead in order to connect this to your shiny new set.

 

I hope this helps.

Hi, that is bad advice from halfords, you need this stereo facia:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lexus-IS200-2001-2005-Single-or-Double-Din-Car-Stereo-Fascia-Facia-Fitting-Kit-/201512923501?epid=0&hash=item2eeb1b316d:g:46MAAOSwSv1XkgTf

which comes with the amplified bypass adapter.

Remove the glove box and there will be an amplifier to the left of the glove box, if i remember correctly its 3x 10mm bolts to remove and then unplug both leads into the amp, connect the larger cable to the bypass lead and run this to the headunit and connect it all up.

Hope you get it all working soon.
