From Tischer all the parts (excluding programming and installation) come to about $718 before shipping. The price of the TCU has come down considerably, enough that it may be better to go with the OEM retrofit, what do you guys think?

If you are looking for only OEM Bluetooth then you could get an used TCU (try to get a P/N as recent as recent as possible) so no coding will be required. The only new part that you could get is the roof unit, but everything else can be used, for less than half of those prices.
