* What problem(s) did you have with the install?


P.S.: The door sills are a really nice touch. I always thought they should have done that at the factory, along with making the ///M logo on the speedo backlit . . .
The camera is where the drivers side license plate light is (The kit combines the light and the camera in the space of the stock light). There is a media module that you have to install behind the dash that send the signal to the display when the car is in reverse. No software. If you look at the product on Alekshop's website you'll see all the parts (camera, module, wires).

My problem was I bought a used camera set, and the media module wouldn't work, so I had to buy a new one.
