Any news on when they're coming out with one? I'm itching to get my 7inch in my sedan.

that's made by a chinese company no one's ever heard of. i would wait for more reliable products.

PS. I just came by Singapore based website offering fascia replacements, which seem to be of better quality (at least in the pics)

The juzkars website looks like it would do the trick. However, I am going to wait till something becomes available in NA

Not all NA cars have nobs, as far as i know the cars with auto climate have buttons not nobs, Mine does.

I contacted "Metra" dash kitsby email and they told me that on October 1st they should have the radio dash kit on there web site. Did not get any detail about single or double din. They would not say anything else at all.

Scoche did not answer back and best kits replied that it is not even in there plans yet.

If this is a corporate panel , it may be half the price to buy a Kia dash replacement , dremel it out and add a generic insert. Corporate panels are usually quite expensive!

I also contacted my local Kia dealer and asked about the double DIN dash kit for the GPS. The answer I got was that you can not get it with out the GPS and it costs something like 2-3k. Don't remember exactly $$$. Completely stupid if you ask me.

I was going to get a way to add my new deck in and keep the OEM but just unplug it but since Metra says oct 1 then I decided to wait. It can be done but you just need to find the best location, even thought it might not be that convenient lol...
