Hi All,

I'm currently going through an issue with a retailer and the colour of the double din fascia (Aerpro FP8030) and wondering if anyone has purchased/installed this in their car.

As you can see from the picture, the colour is just off and it's kinda annoying. Perhaps i am being a bit @[email protected] ? but it really stands out.

The retailer said they have opened all the boxes and they are all the same colour and this is what is stocked for the vehicle.

I've run a search on the forums and couldn't find anything on this, which I think is incorrect surely.

if anyone has any experience with this or can recommend an actual brand that is the same colour as the dash, please let me know and a huge thanks in advance.

I'm in Australia, so hopefully something i can grab from here would be good.

yes they are not quite the same colour, you can buy a genuine Honda one if you want for £140

haha, i love them jelly bellys! esp the red berry one.

it's hard to see, is yours matching colour?

I'm struggling to find anywhere here in Oz that sell the oem part, but i've sent my local Honda dealer an email asking if they can grab one and a quote. Probably something stupid like $400

Plenty on wish.com and other sites but they seem to use the generic photo which is the same I purchased already, so don't want to risk it.

The Honda oem part is a perfect match, if you've heard it looks a little off colour it's probably because its brand new fitted to maybe a sun-faded dash? Thats the case with my car anyway.

I think that l paid around £115 for the oem as the texture is the same and it matches the rest of the dash which gives a better appearance .

Yeah the brackets are £50 each, I’ve bought some generic ones for £5 a pair I will modify to fit, I’ve not tested the colour match, will compare them later, but It looks the same colour

So after the whole mess I went with OEM, colour is near perfect. As @Type 666 said, the colour is only slightly off due to the age of the car, being in the sun etc. But hell it's a HUGE difference to the crap I originally purchased.

Now after several months, and I don't know why. I'm struggling now to get a faceplate that fits correctly. The one that came with the Pioneer dmh-z5150bt is frickin huge and does not fit via front or back. So atm I just have a gap which is really annoying me.

Going to need to correctly measure the sizing and the gap but @Commander2874 @Grossey 's set up looks like it would fit mine, due to the curve of the fascia. Just the "specialist" stores i've been in around Sydney have none that fit which is annoying. Need to research more or maybe look at getting the one I have custom cut.

So annoying ?

if you click on the photo it should enlarge it, yes you can see its a different colour
you could try COX here in England and see if they will ship one
