Strange, I cant edit my own post :P

Anyway, Here is the breakup:

HU: 270$
Polk Audio (all four): some 190$ IIRC
Acoustic Research 16AWG flat wire spindle: 19$

O yes, the mic comes as a standard fitment. Its a standard 3.5 mm jack, need to be hooked on the back of the HU.

@Panky, I guess its worth the money paid. It has got 24bit Burr Brown DACs, have 3 Pre Outs, have color backlit scrren, supports two aux in, USB, Tuner, CD/MP3/WMA, supports HD Radio, and yes the Bluetooth - without any extra attachment (Additional BT attachment would eat up good 80$ or 4-5K Rs.). I was thinking of buying the Clarion 785 HU (not sure about the model number) with Time Alignment which was available in the same budget but then chose this one for simpler interface and more functions.

I might be loosing on the SQ, as compared to the clarion but I am planning to add in a dedicated Amplifier, in hope of getting a marginal boost in SQ.

O you sure dont want to see that :P

That guy actually drilled two holes on each side and screwed a T-iron pieces on both the sides. THe tray is simply scrwed to the T-Iron pieces.

Bad Install but it doesn't show up so I am good :P
