Welcome to Scosche Live Help. Please wait for an operator to respond.
You are now chatting with 'Kelson'
Kelson: How may I help you today?
Matt: When is the 2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS dash kit now due out?
Kelson: Let me check, one moment
Kelson: We will have it available for purchase and ready to ship by Friday
Matt: Amazon.com: SCOSCHE Automotive Dash Kit - 2011 Hyundai Sonata: Electronics
Matt: Why has this kit been available then for a while? Is it yours?
Kelson: One moment
Kelson: We just received the kit not that long ago, but have shipped to a few dealers. We are currently working on getting it on the site
Matt: So you are confirming that that kit is the correct one?
Kelson: Yes that is the correct kit
Matt: I ask because when I zoom in on the picture, it does not look like the "wings" of the dash kit have the brushed aluminum texturing but instead are matte. The stock comes with brushed aluminum texturing so if the dash kit does not have it then it will not match the car.
Kelson: Let check if I can confirm the color finish
Kelson: It is a matte finish
Matt: OK, thank you.
Kelson: You're welcome
I did ordered one yesterday at ebay, now i have to wait some days to arrive in my country.
Everything in my opinion looks better than the one from the competition, the only thing I don't like is the matte color
- The radio placement is more centralized
- The distance between the radio and the air controls
- No spaces between parts
- The whole structure and construction looks firmly done
- The design is nor deformed like the competition
- The matte color
My car interior is piano black, I think even the brushed one could looks nicer since the vents a far away one from other, but I'm skeptical about the matte color, I'm planing to maybe send to a paint shop?
So if somebody got that kit already please let me know.
I found this is weird, and very complex! Looks like a nice weekend project, but probably work with GPS Screens only, $98.99 on ebay.

Heres some things that I do know about this kit. Alot of companies are advertising this to fit the 2011 and 2012 but it only fits 2011. There was some sort of change in 2012 in the lower cubby hole that makes the bolt dimension line up different. This kit does not come with the aux line extender so unless you are prepared to cut and splice you will lose that function. Its going to be extremely difficult to find a a gps or tablet to fit the 7 inch cut out. From what I have seen is you lose a little bit of the screen because of the trim on this kit.
When I bought my 2011 GLS, the standard interior around the dash was black, but if you purchased the PEP it gave you brushed aluminum around the dash, chrome interior handles, alloys etc...so perhaps the interior they're showing isn't for the GLS with PEP. Just a wild guess...
Thanks for clarify!
I saw in some post that you have the Metra kit installed, how are you going with this, I mean still in nice shape or you did changed it for something else?
I got the Metra kit also, but is not installed yet, there is so many bad experience here that I'm afraid to give a shot, so if you are happy with this please let me know, because I can't see my brand new Pioneer AVH-P8400BH sitting here, should be great to do the installation right the way.
I got also the Metra Axxess ASWC and the Metra 70-7304.
Please let me know how happy are you with your setup
I ordered the Scosche kit off Amazon. I will let you guys know when it arrives. I'll look into the frankendash as well.
