Unless you're totally in love with the OEM look of the Becker, why not just get a new head unit. They're cheap nowadays, integrate with the factory amp and have streaming audio capability. Not to mention the extremely better sound output...

It really depends on what your stock system is now and what you want to get out of the new head unit. If you are only looking for a basic 4 channel head unit with streaming audio and bluetooth phone, there are units out there for $100 even. Check out Crutchfield and see what they have.

For reference, I just put in a Kenwood KDC-X597 for $145 including shipping, wiring harnesses, etc.

head

Rosenfe- you might want to research a bit. I believe the 03s use the fiberoptic MOST system, meaning changing out the head unit for an aftermarket one is comparitively involved. I seem to be in the minority who are very happy to keep the Becker unit (with tweaking for bluetooth) even though I have the easier-to-swap 01 system. Best of luck either way.

I have ordered this bottom one (I have the iPhone 5, which means I need to connect via a jack, the top product doesn't fit the iPhone, just the iPhone 4 / iPods..)
