To take the head unit out follow these directions that were made by someone else
The one for the 05-06 is missing a step, you have to pull of the panels next to your shifter/radio, they are a pain to get out, you have to yank it out starting from the bottom rear and work your way up.
Here is the IR for the remote. I put it right next to the Passenger air bag light. The flash really makes it stand out, but under normal lighting you can't see it.
First test fit
In order to run the 4 gauge cable for the sub amp, I drilled a hole in the firewall (5/8" drill bit), put some touch up paint in the hole, and installed the grommet/cable.
Screen Power Cable. Having a cable plugged in to the cigarette lighter at all times is not the look that I'm going for, so I soldered it.
Power supply for the Mini, directly under the head unit (Radio).
Around the forums I have seen some mis information about the coloring of the Rear speaker wires from the head unit. Here is a picture of mine (06 AT)
yellow and black = left ground Teal = left +
Pink and Black = Right ground Orangeish red = Right +
My L.O.C. wasn't going to fit behind the radio with the case still attached, so I took it apart and wrapped it in electrical tape to keep it from shorting out on anything
More to come, MP3car has a 15 pic limit, but they aren't even hosting the pictures, I am.
New custom sub boxes
Good job....you know, though, that where you ran the 4 gauge power cable, there is allready a spot to run cable through? It's the black rubber grommet that is to the left of the wire you ran (as you are looking at the picture), and it drops down into the same place. You just cut a small hole in the grommet, run the wires through, and then seal with some silicon sealant. I've got a 0 gauge power cable, along with about 10 other wires running through there (gauges, UTEC MAP sensor, etc...) If you've got any questions on the G, let me know, I've got a pretty elaborate setup in my 2005 G35.
Good job, by the way!
give us more pics and updates please.

I saw your Car domain, NICE.
I'm planning on making a fiberglass enclosure for the screen, though. The current enclosure is just started to feel ghetto.
