Stereo Upgrade, Cupholder Installation help-

Hello! First, thanks for taking the time to read this thread.

I have an '01 Boxster S that I love- but I'd like to install the cupholders and I'm going to upgrade the stereo so that I can get built in XM, Bluetooth and an Ipod plug.

Here's how it looks now...

Here are my questions...
1. Should I (do I need to, would you...) keep the factory DSP unit?
2. Can the new stereo (or the climate control unit) be mounted in the console below to make room for the cupholders?

In advance, Thanks!

You can move the AC controls to below your storage box. It's not easy, but it can be done. You'll need to get a new face plate that surrounds it. My AC controls are down there.

The cupholders will go where the AC controls are now. I had cupholders but now I have a nav unit.

If you want BT, iPod, and XM you should get a new headunit. Check out Pioneer.

It's not about the summit, it's about the climb.

The DSP unit surround will work on your A/C controls if you move them to the bottom of the front console. You'll have to run the A/C connector down there. It's a pain to get it down there, but not difficult.

If you go with an aftermarket stereo, you'll end up ditching the factory amp and DSP unit anyway, as you won't need them.
