You bet. IIRC, the guys I used charged $80/speaker and give a lifetime warranty. Good luck!

Bose will do it, but I used these folks last summer and was very happy. Prices were much cheaper and they're warranted for life (as opposed to Bose's one-year):

Actually, it turns out that all I need are the amps, though I'll be happy to buy both assemblies. I'd prefer that the amps be in working order, but it's not an absolute necessity. So long as they...

Hey Fred. The maintenance interval is 60k miles for the distributor cap and rotor. I don't know what the upper limit is; I've seen cars with way over 100k on the original with no ill effects.

Not a problem. Thanks for getting back with me. Good luck with keeping the old girl on the road. BTW, there's talk of expanding the funding for the C4C program, but I doubt that G1 Legends qualify...

No rush, just wanted to make sure I was on the radar. Just shoot me a pm when you decide and we'll work out the details from there. I definitely need the front door speaker amps, but if everything...

Thanks, but aftermarket speakers won't work on the G1 Bose systems. They have 2ohm speakers with individual amps. There are several places that rebuild the amps for a reasonable cost, and some...

Selling it in parts is generally more profitable, but that's offset by the hassle of removing/cleaning/shipping the parts. Then there's the matter of how long you (and your neighbors) are willing to...

Yeah, that's an easy fix, other than having to contort yourself under the dash. BTW, how's the idle doing?
