Does anyone know how difficult it is to add a bose system to a catera that did not come with one? I have a wrecked catera with bose, heated seats, all the bells and whistles, while I have purchased a catera that doesn't have the bose and heated seats and so one. How difficult would it be to swap in the upgraded equipment? Will I have to pull whole wiring harness or are they prewired? Anyone know?

I've never tried it because my Catera has almost all the options, but in my experience most European cars especially the high line ones that like the Catera is based on are usually all pre-wired for the options. So a physical swap over should just be plug and play with the individual items. Look under the seat for an additional plug, that should be an instant tell tale.

I did some looking the front and rear heated seat wiring was in place. I have to swap in the switches from donor car and a short section of plug and play wiring under the back seat. The bose wiring is not prewired. I didn't go through that trouble. Everything else seemed to unbolt and bolt back.

At least you have all the parts you need if you feel more ambitious to tackle the Bose system!
