Thumbs up Kenwood radio with Metra 99-7612A installed !

Hi guys !

I finally changed my OEM radio in my '05 Murano with the Metra 99-7612A (aluminium brushed finish) and I'm really satisfied of the result !

I bought a Kenwood double din DPX308U. I found the metra 99-7612A on ebay with all the plugs (paid 275$)

The result is amazing, the plate has a perfect finish. It looks like an OEM installation !

I'll take picture (day and night) tomorow and post them

The only problem I had is the steering wheel controls. I tought the radio would do it but I need the metra ASWC to works

I had the GTA car kit before, I was satisfied but I wanted a USB connection, so I decided to buy the metra plate

By the way, my GTA car kit will be available to sell, if someone is interested, PM me. I'll annonce it soon

sorry for late late late answer.

All steering wheel controls works, but you need to install the Steering Wheel Control Metra ASWC-1 (about 50$ on ebay)

your first statement here, "with all the plugs" what does that mean? I just bought the 99-7612b off of abt for $199, and it comes with the 7612 wire harness, is that all i need? I understand that i will need to add the Metra ASWC-1 for steering wheel components to work.

thanks,
kyle

I also bought metra harness 70-7551. Fits into OEM radio plus. I think you can install a radio without this harness, but it's much easier with.

hi,

so i got the radio (alpine ICS-X7HD), the amp wiring harness, the antenna harness, the metra dash kit (7612), and I will be picking up the aswc-1 from bestbuy friday (they pricematch from amazon). I will be tackling this installation hopefully on saturday. I'll let you know how it goes.
