Congrats

i agree with this totally, but one question wont you have problem seating three people at rear at least occasionally? the HU could have been installed a little more inside that would leave space for the USB sticking out, and would not bother the passengers.

or even better get the 4050 hu that has usb from the rear cable so that the memory stick can be put at the rear itself.

I tried it with three at the rear. The HU wont be uncomfortable for the rear centre passenger. The usb wont be poking his head ;-)

I didnt want destroy the look of the dash which was looking fantastic with the Integrated HU. I could have gone for the LXi dash panel bn\ut again the neatness of the dash with the integrated HU would be sacrificed

too cool - I love the idea.
besides, the install [at the back] looks rather clean.
the tweeter position could have been 'altered' a bit - ihmo.

This is perfect [rear HU] !
If one is chaufer driven, put in a USB & see what you want to listen to.
Very very easy to navigate. I love the idea.
All 'top end' cars should give this feature for cars to be sold in India.
Most 'seth' sit in the back & a chaufer drives them around.
The 'boss' can choose what ever he wants to listen to, without leaning in the front & straining his eyes.

I love the idea !!

I prefer that chauffers dont get disturbed by the music. So I use an ipod+headphone amp+headpones hidden in the center arm rest in the rear.

Damping has done wondors to my car. Boot Rattles were gone. Bass was more distortion free. the mid basses for the comps were more clear.

Power cable upgrade had also a significant change for output from the 75.4.

Over all the ICE souded better and complete.

@Karan.. Thanks for the suggestion. will try to place it some were down the dash as you suggested

@ Green
Sure it was! This was the first Hertz Piece for the Installer, and had a good bargain from the Mrp of around 4950/- i think.
