    I'm looking at replacing the head unit also. The dealer has it right now because it doesn't recognize that there are still 2 CDs loaded but won't play them or load/eject from the 2 slots. I just checked with Crutchfield.com yesterday and it said that if I cahnged the head unit I also need to change the amps. Is that true if you go with an aftermarket head the factory amps aren't compatible?

    it is too much of a pain in the a** to try to replace head unit w/ aftermarket one, while retaining stock speakers/amps. i tried it once and the quality of sound deminished severely. maybe someone else know something i didnt, but if i were you i would stick w/ stock, and maybe change out the 6x8's, and 5x7's w/ aftermarket speakers.

    Get an amp interface and harness from Scosche. The Amp interface is the SLC 4 and the harness is the FDK10. Both can be found at Walmart.

    I replaced the stock head unit with an Alpine in my Mustang and it sounds great.
