I agree. For someone that installs radios all the time (if this someone does) this won't take very long at all to do. By the time you do it yourself you might think $140 would have been worth it but then again if you do it yourself you will probably be proud of what you did and have a better feeling about how it all works.
Getting the new unit to fit is the biggest challenge. Mine is a 2008 and I am assuming yours has the same factory radio. If it does then it is a little smaller than the new unit. There is a bracket in the back the radio snugs up into that the new head unit will not. That bracket will have to come out. There are 4 screws holding it in but I found it had to be cut in half to remove it out of there. I think I read where someone actually did remove it in one piece.
Without getting too involved right now, not exactly knowing what you have I will try finding some of the info I found and post here for you to look at. That might make it easier for you to decide if you want to tackle this project or not. Gotta run now but I will come back later with what I find.
