Do I need this?
I know this is an audio question, but i need help!

So I've decided to go with an Alpine CDE-123, and I will use the alpine power pack. I found a dash mount kit that centers the deck without that cd tray thingy.

My question is, do I need that can-bus wire harness? It's an addition $30-60!!
I currently have the basic system. Non BA

I'm getting a full 6 speaker Infiniti reference series system to go with. Great sound for the price.

Re: Do I need this?
Short answer no. But politically correct answer, Yes.

However, there is another alternative. Metra also made a version without the Nav interface options such as Parking brake, reverse, ETC outputs.

Look for a Metra XSVI6502, without the nav at the end.

Ebay shows about $33 which is pretty good as my cost on this part would be $30.

Thanks buddy.

When I went to crutchfield that's the harness they recommended. I've got it all hooked up now and that harness worked perfectly!
