Default 2000 Regal Head Unit Install

I'm ordering a head unit for the new Regal.

http://www.buy.com/prod/pioneer-avh-...214562978.html

I need some help with a few things.

1. I **need** the door chime module?
2. What antenna adapter do I need?
3. What wiring harness do I need?
4. What dash kit do I need?

Thanks!

you dont NEED the module but if you want to retain the retained acc power and alarms and bells then you should get it, crutchfield gives you the module for half off (40 bucks) and the rest free and free shipping and great support. all that and hassle free wiring is why i went that way.

1- are you running a stock amplified system? (Bose Monsoon), if you're not then you dont need that module, and i doubt theres one anyways, the chimes will work fine for none amplified systems

2- yes, you will need this http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Buick...Q5fAccessories

3- since no module needed, you will need this simple wiring harness http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Radio...Q5fAccessories

4- are you installing a single din or double din?
single din you will need this
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Buick...Q5fAccessories

double din you will need this
http://cgi.ebay.com/1998-1999-2000-B...item4cf5af7134

or a two in one option

Looks expensive for something you have to wire up yourself. I can get those parts cheaper individually. Yes, this will be heavily amplified. Boston Acoustics GT-40 and GT-50. The 40 will be bridged to power a pair of Massive Audio RX6 comps (250W RMS EACH). The 50 will be used to power a pair of cadence 6x9 midbass drivers, a pair of full range 4" to be determined, and two IDQ10V2 subs.

So do I need a door chime module or not?

i asked if you were factory amplified as in Bose or Monsoon, aftermarket amps dont matter on this

i dont get it? whats expensive?
everything you need together is less than 40 bucks shipped, if you think thats expensive then dont ever think of upgrading your GXP lol


and no you dont need the module

Ok, I'm having a bit of trouble here. There are SO many options available for wiring harnesses and etc. I don't care for the chimes, but I find a lot of these harnesses also advertising some 12v 3a accessory wire. What is that for?

I do need to retain steering wheel controls. I will be buying everything through onlinecarstereo.com since they have a 5% coupon code there and the head unit I want is in stock as well.

Thanks for the help!
