Any experience you guys could offer with this kit would be great. Thanks.
More than likely, with that radio you will not need to cut the bezel. Watch step 7 and see if that works out for you. Most radios you shouldn't have to cut the bezel by the specs and size on how they are made. Just some are different that others, especially the non-fixed faced radios. What you have there is a fixed face like my x920bt.

hey, checkin this out and love it, did it myself! one problem. I was using the12voltsource (like always) and obviously the constant and the ignition wires are either wrong or thier is another wire i need to connect bc when i turn the car off all my radio resets as if the constant isnt really constant. can you tell me what color that wire is. Or at least if im supposed to have another wire conected?

There could be a number of things that would cause that like a bad ground. Make sure that all wires are connected, make sure that the harnesses have good contacts as well. There is a constant wire which is a small blue or blu/wht wire but that is to control things like an amp. If you have to, ground the wire yourself rather than the cars main ground that is on the harness.

Why is everything going to glossy black? It adds so much glare its a stupid idea.

This is one reason i dont like plasma tvs because the screens have so much glare now everything is going to gloosy black bezels.

I guess they got the LCDs right so i should be happy with that but i still say the gloss black bezel is a stupid idea.
