Metra 99-8159S Dash Kit

Patrick from Greer, SC on 2/10/2017

2004 Lexus RX330
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Dash kit matched my 2004 Lexus RX330 perfectly. Very pleased! Kit includes a resistor that might be required. It depends on the radio and model year car. Documentation states resistor is required for my car, but the car harness was different than expected and did not have the connector needing the resistor. Glad I didn't have to add the resistor to the car connector. Hopefully it won't be a problem in the future.

Pros: Perfect match in shape and color Easy to install

Cons: Has resistor than may be needed (or not)

fits in

Metra 99-8159S Dash Kit Review

Jeff from Florida on 1/12/2016

2004 Lexus RX330
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The only piece that I used from the kit was the trim bezel, which looked good, but didn't fit quite as well as the factory installation. The fitment issue may have been due to the fact that I elected to use the metal factory mounting brackets, vice the plastic ones that came with the kit? It fit well enough to justify not swapping out the mounting brackets to verify. Overall very satisfied.

Pros: Price

Cons: Fitment of the trim bezel

Fits perfectly. Real nice product.

Used this to install a clarion in my Lexis RX330 - good fit

Pros: pieces fit well, look very good - blends in well with original dash

Cons: wiring instructions not very good - stick with the wiring instructions that come with the harness kit(s)

Read all material

BR Texas from East Texas on 12/5/2014

2004 Lexus RX330
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

fit of the product is great looks like it came from Lexus. Read all of the directions before installing, look for resistors in the package. even though the installation worked,soldering resistors is seems like a cheesy way of tricking the rest of the factory components like NAV and AC controls to work.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: seemingly poor tech solution

Looks cool

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

OK. It's not a perfect match. Perfect = perfect. But it's very close and looks factory installed. Highly recommend. Don't even think about it.

Pros: Looks great. Works perfectly. No issues.

Product Research


Overview: The Metra 99-8159S is a vehicle-specific installation kit for installing an aftermarket stereo into select 2004-up Lexus RX-series vehicles. Please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to see if this kit is recommended for your vehicle and stereo.

Climate Control Retention: In order to retain the vehicle's factory climate controls, the included 68Ω resistor should be installed between two wires on the factory harness. Installing the resistor will also retain factory navigation, if equipped. The resistor should be soldered to the factory wires and covered with heat-shrink tubing or electrical tape. The instructions for this modification can be found in the 99-8159S Owner's Manual.

This one has been OK, not great though but doesn't mean that its the kits fault. It just has a slight angle to it that seems odd. Very happy with it though, not something that makes me want to change it. [ Jason E.  Jul 02, 2016 ]
