Added new Audio system this weekend--2009
This weekend I replaced the head unit in my 09. I installed a kenwood DDX419 BT unit with Sirius/XM module.
The install was very straight forward. Crutchfield provided all the parts needed. Total install time, including wiring the harness adapter to the HU harness was about 1.5 hours. I am not happy with me selection of where I placed the XM antenna unit and may go back and run it to a more obscure location.
Unit sounds very good--A nice upgrade to the factory unit and it fits perfectly and looks at home in the car. I will probably replace the door speakers a few months from now.
