    06 V stereo install

    Just wondering if any of you guys upgraded your stereo to a new head unit and aftermarket subs and such. Is this a nightmare? Been thinking about it, but can't seem to find any info on this. According to crutchfield, looks like you lose the DIC. Is that true? Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks fellow owners.

    The problem is that we have a bus system in the car and when you take out something along that chain everything stop working. If you take out the radio the DIC stops and there are also other thing I think my stop too. Best thing is to upgrade the factory amp and speakers and leave the head unit.

    P.S. I was a Car Audio and Security Specialist for over 10 years.
