eBay double din kit

Anyone have feedback on the linked double din kit? Seems low on price, but does it work? Decent fit?

Bought one, we'll see how it fits. I'll post pics and a little review once received.

The ebay kits fits really nice on my buddies Evo 9.

I went ahead and order the Metra double din kit today for $39 shipped from this place.

Metra kit seems very affordable, I'm just not a fan of the flat black upper piece. Not a big deal if you're going to vinyl wrap or paint though I suppose

I was told it still 2 weeks out from the stereo supplier. I may call Metra to confirm. I dig the Metra kit more since it comes with stereo brackets and I like the textured black look better than the bright silver trim on the ebay kit. The actual JDM silver trim is a darker gun metallic silver but a can of paint would fix it.

Edit:
Looks like ebay has the metra kit so I may cancel my order with the store above and buy it on ebay.

yea i got the same message. A little bit misleading since the website stated they have the kits in stock.

So kit installed now, and it looks just like the pics br3akrboi posted above. Kit is great for the price, can't beat it. You have to bend or grind some metal brackets to move your HVAC controls to the lower cubby, but that would be true for any kit you get. All in all I'm happy, I'll post my setup pics soon.
