SEARCH.

Find delmarco's DIY threads. Follow them.

I have both installed. All the hardware and boxes are tucked away behind the glovebox.

No real trick to the bluetooth hook up. Follow these instructions: http://www.bokchoys.com/differential..._bluetooth.htm

Really easy, just a bit time consuming. The biggest pain will be the vents. There are some clips on the underside that you need to free in order to get them to come out. And the best place for the mic is the factory spot. You may want to angle it so its facing the driver for better sound pick up, but that's about it.

As for the usa spec, is it the one you hook up via the radio or the cd changer?

When I installed mine, I found that there was just no room behind or beside the head unit to put the new connectors and wiring. What I did was remove the instrument panel gauge cluster to access a large space to the right of the cluster. Then, after connecting the new wiring, I pushed the bundle to the left of the head unit into the space accessible by removing the instrument cluster. Then, I reached in from the cluster side and tucked the wiring in. Then, I reinstalled the instrument cluster. Hope this saves you some time.

clipped my mic right behind the mirror from the headliner. Works like a charm and is pretty much hidden from view.
