    I purchased the premium upgrade and the sub... the sub is worthwhile, but it has gain and HPF knobs that aren't really adjusted by the dealership. If you don't adjust those, who knows what kind of sound you're getting....

    Got the sub and bluetooth installed last night. It took about 2 hours start to finish, so that's not too bad I suppose.

    The instructions come with the devices and I just followed them. It was sort of like adult Legos as there are no words, just pictures. Follow the pictures and it's easy to do.

    The only "trick" I suppose is knowing that the boot on the E-Brake handle just pulls off. It's a platic clip thing--actually, almost everything is. It's like and old Snap-Tite model. Anyone remember those?

    If you intend to do Bluetooth and the sub, do both at the same time as it's not any extra work really.

    I did put the bluetooth on the pillar instead of the steering column. I nestled right in there since the panel under the steering wheel was already removed. I just ran the wire between the trim and the rubber strip and it's in a great location.

    I forgot to take pictures, I'll see if I can post those later.

    BTW, the sub sounds great. Had they just put those in all the cars, I'd be few people would ***** about the sound. I did have to turn the gain up all the way and then customize the EQ, but it sounds fine to me--but then I'm old now.
