I looked at a few other retailers of retro stereo's and didn't like them in comparison. That was the Canadian site, there's an American one around too.

I thought I'd have more use for the card reader than the other with Bluetooth. Nice to have station and song names on the display like a modern radio. The remote may seem silly, but its easier to adjust with the remote than the knobs.

The hardest thing to the install was the knob width adjustment/depth. It adjusts to fit anything, took over an hour to get that part right.

Nice to know I have always hacked off my harnesses and guessed that the lined or darker wires were negatives or whatever sounded better.

Pretty good deal considering all that it does.

Good to know, I don't have the box back in yet to see how I want it in there.

Why not in the ash tray? That is if you don't use it.

Have to be careful, it really likes to pump oil up through the top and everywhere else.
