Jdm Rear Seat Cover And Luxlink

Recommended Posts

Hello all-

Happy new owner of an SC430.

I've seen reference to a few things of interest but haven't managed to find them available for sale.

1) rear seat 'cover'- saw a reference to JDM as the maker, haven't been able to locate this. Any ideas?

2) LuxLink- recent posts talking about a possible 'group sale'- I'm in if it happens, also saw one for sale recently used/uninstalled. Anybody have a pointer to one? I emailed Steve Larkin at luxmotorworks to confirm my interest in a group sale.

3) simplest / cleanest bluetooth phone hookup that integrates with the Levinson stereo- recommendations?

4) general accessories / parts for the SC430- any preferred online shops?

Thanks for any guidance.

It appears that you never received a reply. The LuxLink works great but I never heard of the back seat cover; Did you ever learn anything more about it?

My current task is removing the "L" from the front and back but it is a bit more involved than first meets the eye.

Well, I just recently posted so I'm still hoping to hear something on some of these.

I've seen the back seat cover. It's typically called a 'soarer parcel shelf', or a 'soarer rear shelf'. It's absurdly expensive (~1k) apparently, but it does look pretty good, and I think it's actually a sort of storage device as well as a way to make the rear seat disappear in a nice way.

I've heard good and bad about the LuxLink, mostly good on the product, some bad on the dealer response and a bad install or two. But the worst is that it's not available at the moment. I'm hoping enough people are still looking for it that we can get another run of it.

Good luck with the L removal. I'm fine with them.

There are interface harness for installing Bluetooth phone kits into an SC430 at http://www.quickconnectproducts.com/Find/find.php

The 9000 series of Parrot kits seem to have the most features. Here is a thread over on Clublexus about someone using one of these interface harnesses to install a Parrot MKi9100 into his 02 SC430: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/sc-430/441563-1-stop-bluetooth-ipod-solution-for-02-sc.html

There was a past thread about someone trying to piggyback the Parrot interface harness with a VAIS sat radio/etc. harness but, last time he reported, it wasn't working and he was talking with VAIS about his problem.

Hey, thanks very much for the response!

I had seen this thread, but was wondering if anything newer / better had come along.

I was also curious to know if one can still close the ashtray lid after this install.

Do you know if that's possible?

Thanks again.
