If he is changing the stereo system to something else, chances are he will lose the steering inputs. I do not know of any aftermarket system that will retain factory steering radio inputs.

You should be able to add subs to your stock amp, and you can always change your speakers to higher quality, sure it won't be as nice as a fully custom system, but it would be a compromise to losing steering controls.

Have you considered using stock system with

Infinity Basslink Subwoofer..?

Many have setteled with this as an optional upgrade from stock "tinny" sound..

there is an adaptor you can buy that will enable you to use the bottons on the wheel, my friend has a 540 with a Alpine CDA-7893 and it works great.
