Premium Audio post purchase

Is it possible to buy the premium audio system at a service center post purchase? Want to get the sub and looking for OEM look or actual OEM system.

Anyone know any reputable custom audio installer in north NJ area?

Unfortunately, you'd need to replace the MCU and add a stock amp. The older S's were wired for it - just slide the amp in and add the rear-deck speakers, and replace the front door speakers.

From personal experience, I can tell you that just upgrading the front door speakers alone with the ones from a Premium sound package make a huge difference. It's easy and inexpensive to do and keeps things "stock". (If you do this, you need to find the speakers and the speaker bracket as the Premium speakers are larger and won't just drop into the existing bracket.)

Sliding JUST the amp in without the MCU will not work as the audio signals are not present.
