I guess with the Touchdisplay you have to take one of your vents apart... AWRON comes pre-installed into an entirely new vent assembly so that does make it a little easier (but also more expensive).

IMO the worst part is getting access to the connection point at the BCM down in the passenger footwell. I broke one clip, but thankfully it all went back together OK and doesn't rattle.

It certainly does help to have the correct tools, proper German-car "terminal release tools" are very useful.

I've also done a lot of 12V work in the past though (aftermarket radio installs and concealed radar detectors or windshield detector hardwiring), so I suppose my definition of "easy" may be different from some.

I'm an IT guy by trade and tech nerd by choice.
I like HPDEs, parts of US Hwy 129, NC 28, and the Cherohala Skyway.
I'm also a fan of aural pleasure.
