    Do they have a rep around here? Because I can not get a reply from them on their website. I now from other thread this is not an isolated incident but I figured I would ask.

    At least I paid with Payypal and I can get my money back easily. Where else have people gotten their dash kits from? Crutchfield the only other place?

    Notice the date the date saying they will ship it out Wednesday. Finally get a second reply from them Monday night, saying they are shipping it out Tuesday. I now know who I am NOT getting my speakers and sub from. Hopefully Mr. Marv is easier to work with. Amazing they get any business. I will trust everyones opinions more form now on here. Doesn't seem to be bashing but more of the truth now it seems. OK I am done, I willnot make this mistake again.

    mr marv has some awesome advice.

    Still not shipped and still no reply from 3rd attempt with Tacotunes :mad:

    I guess I file a complaint with Paypal and get my money back and call Crutchfield and hope their dash kit is a good match.

    If Taco Tunes doesn't work, check out some of these options... The metra kit is a better option than a generic crutchfield kit.

    Hey jay i suggest getting your money back he has dug himself in a whole real bad and now has a bad rep on toyotanation.com and he was a vendor on thier site, i have heard good and bad things but mostly bad things lack of communication and lousey customer service they say they will ship something out and it doesnt get shipped just be aware of that company. I reccomend talking to MR Marv he knows his stuff!

    Yeah i am gonna go with Marv for my baffles and maybe speakers if he does those too. I do not think it is necessary for the dash kit to go with Marv is it?

    Mr Marv basically makes enlcosures and amp racks and also makes baffles for mobile audio. he does other stuff with home audio, but I don't know much about that. He can help you buy speakers in some cases but doesn't actaully sell them.

    He doesn't sell dash kits as far as I know. If I were you I'd get the Metra dash kit. The scosche kit sucks. I'll be replacing mine with a metra kit soon.

    Actually, he's an authorized dealer for Hybrid Car Audio, and can sometimes act as a vendor if you can't get something in your neck of the woods.

    Marv does sell a limited amount of electronics. He will certainly help you decide on a good product to go try out though.

    He does build enclosures and baffles (and cabinets are his first love). He does not sell and installation accesories outside of the above mentioned items. Check crutchfield or sonicelectronics or amazon.

    I still have hope for Tacotunes. I had just ordered the textured dash kit 2 weeks ago and was contacted by TacoTunes within a day to notify they were out of stock and I requested to send me the regular dash kit. They responded to my emails within mins (but this was @ like 12am PST) and they honored my request with an appology for not having the kit i wanted in stock. I got the item within 3 business days of the emails. I love how they include tools with their kits.
