Normally, I would install it myself, but in order to get theft replacement and 3 yr warranty, it needs to be installed by an authorized dealer.
As far as why I got it.... I've always been a huge Alpine fan, and still am. However, I've always thought the eclipse sounded a little better. The only reason I never bought one before is because there was a two year period where they had a skipping problem, and I didn't want to deal with that. From everything I have read, this has been fixed. I'll post pics tomorrow after it's done. I will be using the metra kit for a short time until SRCSTC (Rich) finishes my centered kit.
