You paid a lot for the HU.
You could have got a better HU in that price range or even cheaper than that.

No it hasn't reduced in all places. I got it for 7K, just 2 months before. The point is when the dealers think its a treasured model, and judge the pulse of customer, they will never reduce the price.
On contrary, if they feel its an outdated model, they come down to sell it desperately. Here again if you act a casual customer, who does not know much about ICE, the chances are you get better price for some older models.

This rule may not be universally applicable though, I have noticed it in my limited experience

Ya thats true M10.

He actually gave me the option of 6050 and 5050 and quoted little bit high on 6050 - so went for this 5050 .

No issues at all the features are quite neat - except the display
