Do you actually LIKE that setup? Seems ridiculously low and out of sight for a nav\head unit to me, def clearly not factory look at all.

Nah, it's not a nav unit, just a CD/DVD. I actually like it right there, I hated reaching down to adjust the AC etc. I love this set up much better, feels more natural. Besides, it sounds AWESOME, + most of my music plays from my phone via bluetooth and still control everything from the steering wheel. If you like the stock look, which I did, that's cool. Although I prefer to have the AC/Heated seats controls up high. But no, the stick doesn't get in the way of anything. Pretty close guess at $650. For the head unit, scosche, infinity Basslink, retaining sync + install = $644. Well worth it if you hated the shaker as much as I did.
