I live in GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA (population 90,000) and I was able to find a local installer who knew what parts were needed, could get them, and installed an aftermarket HU in my 2002 Pontiac Bonneville SE with no Bose system.
The only thing you loose is the damn door chime. Now that I know what was involved I WOULD DO IT MYSELF IF I HAD TO DO IT AGAIN. Don't get all flustered, call a local car stereo shop, not an appliance chain. Or here, call the place I went to. Talk to Omar. Tell him Mike Remer told you to call (tell him I have the 02 Silver Pontiac Bonneville with the 12" Memphis sub and HiFonics AMP with the flip down Pioneer Premier HU) (352) 374-7700. Ask him what part he used and if HE would get it for you.
Grand Am vs. Bonneville?!?!
