I've located a great double-din backet and plate on ebay that has a very stock look for $169. It includes all the required brackets to install the double-din unit plus a trim for the climate control system relocation.

I'm guessing it's the same metra harness for the Pioneer as well. I checked Cruthfield again and it is an Audi harness. Could you let me know how you figured out how to move around the pins to get the rear speakers working? Was there some sort of diagram?

Thanks again for the input!

If you are looking at the Pioneer adapter kit from treuillonaire then get it.
He's a member of this forum and his kit is awesome and specially designed for our cars.
Do you have a Bose rear speaker unit or a non-Bose unit? (they both have different wiring)
I am driving the front and rears from the Pioneer AVIC and the door speakers from the 4x40 OEM amp.
But it was a little tricky to get it to work.

I can give you more details if you're interested
I still wave at Boxsters, but they no longer wave back :-(
