hi sarah, welcome to the club.

the stereos often come up on e.bay, can be pricey though.or keep an eye on the buy and sell section

alternately its an aftermarket unit.

hope this helps

AfterMARKET is one that you buy after the purchase of your car, that is non-standard factory-fit/option.

With the IS, you will need to buy a "facia adaptor" as the IS does not have standard size/fittings for standard after market stereos.

Is that a plate that fills any gap that a new stereo doesnt?

And ISO wiring adapter thingy or other solution depending on model, if you want to keep the existing amp and speakers etc etc

Hello, welcome to LOC, good to see another IS owner in the area.

Its a common problem with the standard radio. If you have the 's' model all you need is an ISO adapter for the aftermarket radio.

Unfortunatly if you have the Se or the Sport model, there is an external amp behind the glovebox, to replace with headunit would mean you would also have to change the rear speakers, which means if your changing the rears you might as well change the fronts as well.

Best of luck

Lee.

PS. Facia can be bought from here, Ebay

:) Hi Sarah, Welcome

You can send your stereo to Autosounds in Bradford, they are the UK Lexus stereo repairers.

Not sure how much it will cost, but it may work out cheaper than an aftermarket if you have to replace the Amp etc.

They'll put all new inners in so it should be a long term fix.

It may, depending on your insurance policy be possible to claim on your insurance, I know thats what a guy who works with the brother in law did, he just paid the excess !!
