OEM Stock Replacement Stereo

Stumbled across this stereo that is a direct replacement for our head unit. Did a quick search but came up with nothing. Anyone have any experience with them?

That is no more of a direct swap than a Pioneer/Alpine/kenwood et.al. would be.

Also, thats a laughably bad photoshop in the 'installed' photo.

Well they say its a direct fit. You remove your old head unit and push this right in its place. No messing with wiring.

LOL at the photoshop.

Meh, It takes all of 20 minutes with an aftermarket harness to pick out a deck worth while.

Well if it is truly plug and play, that means no messing around trying to get the steering wheel controls to work. That usually requires you purchase extra accessories. Comparing other aftermarket head units, this has just as many if not more bells and whistles too it. If the price is comparable to the likes of Kenwood or alpine it might be worth looking into.

Chinese company. Not that that's bad but their website and lack of info is worrisome. Also not sure what this website is I found but a short google search of the company name turned it up quickly.

I wouldn't go near it. There seem to be plenty of good options and info on this forum.

If you decide to go forward let us know how it turns out. I'd look more into their business though before sending money overseas.

Just got an e-mail from them confirming its a direct replacement. Also its $340.......but like some people have pointed out its a big risk. I have bought many things direct from China. Battery packs, my replacement screen for my cell phone, cell jammer, and never had a problem. I will have to think about it. For all it is the price seems very cheap.

All the options like GPS USB have extra wires coming out of the back of the unit. All the stock functions located in the same spot as the OEM head unit. The kit comes with everything you need, GPS antenna and all.

I bought a different Chinese double din head unit that wasn't a name brand and it lasted about a week and upon uninstalling it burnt up in my face. I replaced it with a reputable brand and was much happier. It was worth the extra money.

Yes when its too good to be true, It usually isn't any good. I have been searching for anyone anywhere that has bought from them. So far have not been able to find someone that has bought a unit and reviewed it. I think I am going to pass on this one.
