FWIW I got an email from Best Buy indicating that these deals are available now with Early Access (not sure if everybody gets this?)

I ordered the Kenwood - DDX9703S with installation for $400 and some JBL speakers (GX600C and GX602)

I do not know much about car audio, so I would welcome any input on whether these are reasonable selections to upgrade my 2009 Honda Civic EX.

I was interested in the carplay av100, but decided against it after hearing the details..

Don't be fooled by the MSRP price tag- you are saving 100 dollars, because a normal installation is 100- but places like crutchfield has considerable discounts on installation hardware, which you WILL NEED, which will even out in the end. Read further below.

In addition, you need additional cables(you can get it yourself though),
But- if you want steering wheel controls and rear cam , it will cost you somewhere around 129 dollars + 59.99. This is from a call with my local best buy. I have a subaru impreza.

I am instead going to look for a good deal in the unit and try to find a cheaper alternative or (god forbid) try it myself . sheesh

I price compared with Crutchfield and for me the discount on the extra cables/parts to do steering wheel controls etc, was only $50 and they were more expensive than Amazon for some of the extra parts ($130 for the iDatalink module vs $95 on Amazon). So it is really only a savings of maybe $20 vs having somebody else on the hook for making everything work.

That said, some of the higher end heads might be a better deal given that they're discounting the head + installation rather than just free installation.

You are correct. Probably looking at crutchfield, then buying the parts via amazon/ebay might be the most affordable method.

I really wish there is a most cost effective option for installing these things- best buy kind of duped me with this deal

The parts might be not much different in price- but they asked over an additional 200 dollars (had to add in the additional bracket install labor costs) in installation labor, on top of the base installation(100), in order to retain steering wheel and rear cam controls.

If you have a car that doesn't include these functions to begin with, then it is a good deal- however, if not, the base installation cost that you "save" isn't everything- there is more required.

I myself have decided to wait for a good HU + giftcard deals that I see come up from newegg or so, and look to install it myself when the time comes around.
