The new one seems to indicate soft touch... and I think with a double din actually in it, the buttons on the left/right won't look out of place.

Price point? Maybe a discount group buy.

It will not be a group buy situation that I know of...just standard retail at any Metra dealer.

Spidy...that unit is awesome. I had that same one in my car until I upgraded to the INE-Z928HD and made a custom kit for my '10 6. Here's a link.
Ford can suck it....I now have an 8" Alpine in MY dash too!

The shortcut buttons are awesome...plus, once your phone is linked via Bluetooth, you can access the iPersonalize feature that lets you adjust Crossovers, Time Alignment, EQ, all by answering a few questions about your car type, speaker sizes, locations, seat material, etc. Then you can go in and adjust it manually if you like as well. Having 4 presets for handsfree is nice...put the 4 people you call most up there and one tap calls them. The Navigation is 2nd to none...I used to be a bigger Pioneer Nav fan...the old Alpine Nav was very dated. These new units use an all new platform with much better mapping and better detail. The first chance I get, I think I am going to swap my wifes Pioneer out for an Alpine...but she doesn't know that yet.

Indeed, I may just be thinking about a double din in my car after all. I had resigned myself to stock as I hate the way the single din looks in the dash, but this looks great!

06 Mazda 6s Grand Sport - stock
89 Mazda RX7 GTUs - sold, :-(

from what it looks like the doubledin line for cheap knockoffs might have come to an end. Metra better be ready to produce.
