this is why I shouldn't post classfieds, or anything after midnight
It was actually over 1500 for the inaw900bt & metra kit w/the 2 yr no questions asked warranty extension incl tax. the price for the w900bt was, i believe, $1099.
I too have seen the alpine for "around" 800 all over the net. From my further research last night, authorized dealers are selling it for around $1k. It looks like Alpine had a price drop in anticipation of the new model(s)?
If you're interested in the alpine and/or metra kit (or all of it), make me an offer.
