Rear camera cutout

Has anyone put in a rear camera and cut their trunk or bumper for the install?

Yes. I made a 2x2 inch hole on the top part of where the license plate goes. Can't notice it with the camera installed. There is no need to cut into the trunk.

You may already have the hole.
The later 2011's have a cover that pops out for the camera. Mine did. Look in the center of the bumper underneath the lip right above the license plate.

I ordered a 2012 Camera and bracket for my 2011 and used Ofer's harness to connect it to a Pioneer head unit.

Removing the bumper is a bit of a pain (by myself) and dremel'ing a hole for the 2012 camera bracket is a little delicate but it turned out quite nice:





With some trial and error, I first made a template with cardboard that the 2012 camera bracket would fit into. Then I traced the outline of the template onto the bumper with a pencil and cut it out with a dremel:



Finished installation of the camera/bracket into the bumper:
