New Stereo - Pioneer Avh - 3200Bt


Recommended Posts

Hello,

First of all this is my first post on this forum. I have spent hours so far reading through the hundreds of threads but the more I read the more confused I get.

I have a lexus is 200 se - 2004. I've had it for about 3 months now and due to some lucky betting on the football (carling cup games) I have almost got enough money to purchase a decent head unit.

I have been looking around for a few weeks now and think that I would like the Pioneer AVH - 3200BT. I like that it's got Bluetooth, dvd, Ipod connection (need a cable) but from what I have read you can choose the colour of the led's - therefore I can make them the same amber type colour as the rest of the car. In my old car I had a green dashboard with blue stereo light's and that pi**ed me off.

This is the stereo link:

Has anyone else already got this stereo? Is it any good? Are there any alternatives that are better? You can get it for £336.95.

Now, this is where I start to get confused. I know that i will need theIpod adaptor cable - £29.95 and a fascia adaptor thing.

Could someone confirm that this cable on eBay will be the correct amp bypass cable I will need? It's about £29 inc delivery:

A few more requests so please bear with me.

If I purchase everything above is there anything else I would need to buy?

I have seen people mention that there are walkthroughs on just about everything but when I click the links to access them I have an error which says that I do not have permission to view them. How do I solve this? Alternatively could someone please email me the walkthrough - ideally I would like the how to remove the standard stereo walkthrough and also the alkthrough that shows how I install the bypass cable.

I have some time off work in a few weeks so am aiming to do this all myself then as I have plenty of time. From reading other topics I expect that I will get a few scratches on my knuckles along the way but I am hoping it is all worth it.

Hi matey

Having just fitted a double din unit myself, i found these links helpful

Couple of links...

http://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=1161&

http://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=46907

And for removal of the dash tray....

http://www.lexusowne...?showtopic=2160

I was going to get the Pioneer, but my supplier (i work in the car trade) couldnt get me it, so i just went for a JVC unit.

You need a AMP-bypass cable and the eBay link you suggested is fine

The worst part of the job is disconnecting the AMP lead as its tighter than a nuns &&*&

And a facia.

http://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=59076&st=0&p=654755&hl=autoleads&fromsearch=1entry654755

I went for a genuine Toyota one and "modded" the switches to fit snuggly.

I found the best thing to do was take your time and have a "dry run" before you rip the dash out etc etc

But if you get any problems (like i did) all you need to do i ask and your get some major help (like i did lol)
