hi all

I came across this system on ebay :

AUTORADIO MONITOR NAVIGATORE GPS,USB, SD, KIA RIO, K2, 2011-12 SPEDIZ. DA ITALIA | eBay

this obviously only fits left hand drive as on the right hand drive the square hole is on left, not right like on the pic.

I contacted the seller but they cant source a reversed one. Shame as the head unit is effectively same, its just the fascia that needs adjusting.

Anyone know or came across a setup that fits left hand drive Rios ?

Not aware of anything available for us (RHD) in DVD/GPS in-dash kits. Been looking and have asked a couple of questions with no response, but all looks to be suiting the LHD market only.
Can't even get many 3-door specific items on eBay - all are for either the 4 door sedan (Pride) or 5 door hatch. What other markets/countries have the 3 door?
Not that I am after anything specific, just curious.

This was my initial question to the seller;

He then requested a photo of my dash to confirm, which I have not done yet.

I sent the seller my dash photo and he says it doesnt fit.

I asked:

hi there

thanks
he replied:

Sorry,The navigation don't fit your car.Thank you

Top find...bit expensive though :(

Works out to be over $1300! Wish there were better (and cheaper) options for us RHD ppl!

Gonna look around a bit, see what can be dug up.
Proof that we get ripped off in South Africa. It is insanely expensive.
