Anyone install this aftermarket kit to replace the radio on the 2013 with 4.2" display?

I found that last night...unfortunately, the OP hasn't posted any updates, only what he bought.

I'm just looking for feedback about how well or not the Metra works. I don't want to drop 300-400 bucks on this kit + the cost of a Radio and speakers if it's going to act squirrelly all the time.

Myself and others feel that the kit places the radio too low in the dash. I would wait a bit and see what else is developed.

If I had a 2013 with this radio, I would skip a new HU altogether. There are plenty of ways to make it sound great. Some things are not worth the trouble and the "bugs" you will probably go through with that climate interface....plus it looks like crap.

that's what I was hoping to find out...what kind of "kinks" come with it. I spoke to a dealer today and I asked about that. He said, "Metra makes good stuff, it will work great.". I've worked in IT for over 20 years. Everytime I hear that bad things happen. I left shortly after.
