5 hours from start to finish. Their manual suggest 5-6 hours for installation.
Though I could have done it in 4 hours, but there was no need to break any clips / damage anything.
Unit was located in the glove box so you could access the USB port there.

I could have fitted it in stealth mode, but then you would need to extend the USB cable in that case.

If your rear screens are linked to CCC, then it should have same display as CCC. Adding this box should automatically link it to rear screens as well.

If you have not installed those yet, then you should be looking to something which fits with OEM CCC without alteration of anything and keep things plug and play.

Cost: refer to my post above.

Well it is down to personal preference
CIC vs CCC with Kufatec media box.

CIC, you may have to sell it with the car, unless you saved CCC and you know how to put it back to the car. CIC is brilliant TBH but cost you a lot considering fitting and coding charges.

CCC with kufatec is reversible and owner can always sell it own.
