1. Remove stock radio
2. Remove glove box
3. Install Parrot kit brain and steering wheel adapter behind glove box (there is a lot of room back there), routing wires to the radio location
4. Connect steering wheel adapter to Parrot kit brain
5. Connect PnP harness to stock radio harness
6. Connect PnP harness to back of stock radio
7. Connect PnP harness to the Parrot Kit
8. Connect PnP harness to steering wheel adapter unit
9. Route microphone to rear view mirror via A-pillar and headliner (probably the hardest part of the install, but still not very hard)
10. Re-install radio and glove box

If there is some interest I can do a little more detailed DIY, with some pics, which can give a little more insight into how the install went (like routing the microphone wires for example)
