Umnitza Dynavin w/BSW full system review

Well I received my Dynavin from Umnitza this past Friday and went ahead and did the install. It was fairly easy and on a scale of 1-10 I’d give it a 2 or less since I’m a tinkerer. LOL
I started by first removing my old dice unit, taking off the trim and removing the radio. I then installed the AC control relocation bracket. All of this took about an hour while I waited for Fedex to deliver the product. Then I started hooking up the harness, steering wheel control, blue tooth mic, GPS cable etc… I stuffed everything up and to the left of where the unit sits…there is a big hole by the temp gage. It was still a tight fit even with everything stuffed out of the way. I ran my mic up the passenger A pillar and out by my sun visor. You can’t really see it but it performs marvelously there.
I have a full no H/K BSW system installed with the new updated sub. I didn’t have to use the LOC’s provided and this system is great. Dynavin and BSW play very well together. My highs are much cleaner and crisp and the new sub has more bass…(almost too much with the gain turned up)
Although the IGO is nice, Primo (not shown)is a little better in my opinion. Especially when you tweak it to not mute during button presses etc… I wish the Ipod interface was a little more user friendly but I find it easier to use the remote. I only listen to one playlist anyways.
I watched 5 minutes of Saving Private Ryan (to say I did it and to show off to a friend). I’m thinking of installing a camera if I find one that works well with the coupe. I may also install composite cables for my ipone 4 if I find one that works with that for sure.
I snapped a couple of pictures and it looks like any other Dynavin but this one is mine. ***61514;

I like it here because it's closer to my head vs the mic hole on the unit. I also figured it wouldnt work as well inside the stock location.
