Yes, it is a rip off... they are charging more than $600 for install and coding over the cost of the tuner and bracket kit.

Tuner: P/N 65129192274 $396 (one year of service included)
Bracket kit: P/N 65110406351 $20

Order here: http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...&siteid=214672

Install instructions below.

My advice... install it yourself then take it to another dealer -or even to an Autologic shop which will be cheaper- for coding. That should cost you about $500 -$525 tops.

The SA doesn't control the amount the line tech charges for shop time. IF they have trouble getting the coding to work ONCE, they will charge a lot every time.
