best way to get in touch with me on the weekends is to send a PM. i get notifications in my email and don't always come on the org but i will if i see i have a PM.

anyway, you DO have the infinity system so you WILL need the Metra CHTO-02 harness. what it does is retains the factory infinity amplifier. if you plan on changing to an aftermarket amp, which i'm assuming you're not, then you need the bypass harness (Metra 70-6510) down the road.

but yes, CHTO-02 is the one. they retail for around $169.

no, you don't have to run wires to the amp, that's what the harness is for. it's plug and play.

they RETAIL for $169. ebay is not retail, hence why the one is $99. just remember, you rarely get a warranty on these pieces you buy online. i cannot advise people enough on this, but it's your decision. Smile
