Ok, I spoke to the crutchfield guyz and here is what I am considering.
1. Head Unit - Kenwood DPX 308U (199$)

2. Metra Kit (originally 199$, with discount 100$)

3. Stereo harness =0$ (included for free)

4. Steering wheel control adapter = 70$

Total cost = 370$
A local mechanic quoted me 2 hrs labor charges @ 60$/hr (120$)
So I might be able to fix the issue for 490$.
Does anyone know if this will totally isolate AC from the audio system? I can live with a broken audio system in the future but in MOntreal we need the defogging system.
Just for info...i called the infiniti dealership and they quoted me 1300$+ tax to fix it and also mentioned that this problem can crop up in the future. WTF!!!!
I have been looking to find photos and videos of Kenwood DPX308U installed on a G35 just to see how it looks like...can someone post me a link if you find one. I have tried a bit but could not find one installed on a G35.
Finally, what do u guys think about the value for the price? I have never worked on my G, should i consider hooking it myself?
Thanks in advance.
