Newish owner here so thanks for your patience. I have a 2007 with the stock Alpine HU and it isn't working that great (CD doesn't work, gives me some random error readings sometimes) so I am looking to replace it. Is swapping just the HU difficult (on a scale of 1-10 how hard)? Is it easier to replace if I stick with an Alpine HU? Can anyone be trusted to put a new HU in (Best buy or do I need to go to a real shop)? Would an installer need to worry about the alarm going off? Suggestions on a new HU that won't break the bank but might allow for future upgrades (like new speakers or a sub)?

Thanks!

It is about a 3

What unit is about what you want WRT features

Newest Pioneer units have dual bluetooth and support more file formats than Alpine does

stock speakers are good quality with the exception of needing a sub

I have both sides of the wiring connector if you know how to crimp small wire terminals
