Hi all 

has anyone had a front and rear dash cam supplied and fitted by lexus? just been to Halfords and for a good front and rear inc kit,sd card and fitting they want £275 called lexus and they have a more discrete one same company nexbase with no wires to be seen for £100 more, speaking to Halfords guys who seemed a little confused amd not very confident id be happier with lexus to be honest but just wondered if anyone had any experience with their dash cams ?

I had the front only system installed a couple of years ago, before the dual system was released.

My dealer did a great job - no wires visible.

I uploaded some photos of it back when it was done - click here

The video quality can be seen here

My brother go one from ebay for about 20 quid  and it does the job perfectly fine - it has G sensor so starts recording it car is hit and it has wifi connect  - he has been recently been in an accident and he used the footage.

He tucked the wires in the front pillar.

I would suggest have a look on ebay - do some comparisons - have a look at the numbers sold and feedback and buy from there - I just think the difference in price is just too much to justify going to the high street

He got this one or very similar

The Lexus/Toyota approved model can be purchased as a front or front and rear.

Looking at the rear camera install -  there will always have to be some wire visible to allow the boot to open is my understanding

I purchased Nextbase 522w front and rear for 200eu from Halfords Dublin last year. For a good few months Haldfords would't install DashCams due to Covid Safety.

In November 2020 for 60eu i had both installed quite ok( will add pics) . Now i see that the price for the dashcam went up so installation price to 41eu each
