You want to replace it with that? No you dont, not really. Get a good head unit.

Remember, Xplod stands for "*****" the head units are decent at best, and you can get better. Other than that, just get the kit to install it with and your set.

Good point, but still. Pioneer head units look so bland to me. That particular head unit he chose is very good for anything xplod, but still short of a lot of other companies. I just dont want any dissapointed people coming here asking questions why their head unit isnt good or whatever

This is an in-dash install kit right?

What type of wiring harness adapter do I have to get? Do you have any links?

There's two brands of mounting kits. The Scosche linked above and a Metra kit. I believe I have the Metra Kit in my '00 SE. The Crutchfield link to the wiring harness adapter is exactly what you want. It will make installation much easier and reversable.

You can check out the Audio Forums at www.b15sentra.net (http://www.b15sentra.net) for specific details about the system in your SE and dash disassembly instructions. They'll probably direct you to something else than a Sony headunit, too.
