    Radio trim for aftermarket install

    Just for you r8 owners that wanted to change for factory head unit with a aftermarket unit such as pioneer, kenwood etc...

    In Japan the factory head units are different and has a clean 2din install

    So with this factory piece you can get a clean install of any aftermarket head unit

    I'll attach the picture so you can see what it looks like
    I think this part is only available with audi Japan but do not quote me on that

    If that is indeed a factory piece, do you happen to have the Audi part number?

    Here is a picture of the actual radio/Navi trim for factory Head unit made by clarion Japan for the Audi R8

    I picked it up from Audi today

    The Japan factory head unit is different from the rest I the world

    I am attaching a picture of a 2 din pioneer Navi head unit already installed with the Japan factory Audi trim piece

    The Audi factory part number is J42 AE2 C12

    So if anyone wants to change their head unit now you can with a factory trim from Audi...

    And as for steering wheel functions just buy a PAC steering wheel control adapter... I'm going to install it soon when I got some time...

    Hope this info helps

    That appears to be a JDM only part. It doesn't appear in ETKA.

    Why are JDM R8s LHD when RHD cars are readily available?

    Only saying that because I'm disappointed that we cant get such a bezel for RHD cars. Even my VW camper has a better hi fi than the R8.

    I don't know why JDM r8 mostly LHD.... They do have RHD but it's very rare ...

    As for wanting the same bezel for right hand drive you are in luck they do have it
    Here is a picture from a RHD r8 with the clean double din bezel

    If you want i can get the part number for you... Just send me a PM and I'll get it for you

    Will this trim work in North America?
