Hi guys, I have 99 sport and want to change the head unit. What I have been told is that they need to rewire and I need new speakers. Is this true

Yes, if you're going to add a head unit to your catera, you will want to replace your bose speakers. Any nice component set is going to blow your stock bose speakers away anyway.

If you were real stubborn and wanted to keep your bose speakers with a head unit, you probably could but it would cost a lot of money because it's going to be a hassle for the person doing the labor.

Also, don't let them tell you they need to make a custom dash kit because you can get one online for $15, and car shops usually try to charge $150 - $200 for a custom dash kit on the catera because it's hard to find one.

If you need the dash kit, let me know and I'll find the link for you. Hope this helps.
