Be advised: not an authorized reseller [pioneerelectronics.com], so Pioneer will not honor warranty.

^^ They're are listed as an Unauthorized dealer for car audio. Newegg is only authorized to sell home electronics. Per their website "While Pioneer cannot list every unauthorized dealer, the sellers below are NOT authorized Pioneer Car Electronics dealers. Should you have any questions about a seller not on this list, please contact us."

It would cost me about $150 to add the Pioneer Bluetooth module to my current stereo.

Looks like a good price, but... I'd have to get a double din aftermarket adapter so it would be flush in my 2009 Altima. Also, I just use one of this Kinivo BT adapter things and my iPhone to use Sirius XM / Pandora / Plex / etc. to my car stereo.

By the time I got the stereo and adapter and paid install fees, we're talking at about $200 if I had a guess. :/

Most shops charge higher install cost if you don't buy the product from them, so your total may be higher. With all the advancement of technology these days its alot easier to do it yourself to save some money. Realistically the hardest part of the install is soldering vehicle specific adapter to new stero, but with the invention of quick splice connector [amazon.com], its a non issue now.

If you decide to do it yourself to save some money, the best place for finding what you need for your car is sonicelectronix, they will tell you what items you need based on your car model. One last thing to think about is if you have controls on your steering wheel, you can still use it with an aftermarket module [sonicelectronix.com].

Thanks for the info. Didn't even think about the steering wheel controls. Seems like a lot of work and money and adapters to get everything the way I would want it...and I'm in no dire need of it.

Sonic Electronix is very good but I feel Crutchfield is better. Either one will work fine.

Why mess with the quick splice connectors when you can just get an adapter harness to connect the radio to the existing wiring? I always recommend those over splicing when possible. All it takes is a few but connectors to connect the adapter hardness to the radio harness and done and the simply plug it into the factory harness of the car.

Here is one for the 2009 Altima as an example.

I'd really like to buy this, because I definitely want to upgrade to BT for music, but I'm very uncertain about what and how much work would be required to do it myself. Thing is, I have a relatively unusual situation for which not much internet knowledge exists:

2007 Toyota Corolla with the JBL Premium 6-disc, 6 speaker factory stereo.

Could somebody help an old knob like me and let me know what I'd need to install this Pioneer head unit, and if it would require any splicing or cable routing?

Didn't realize there was people that actually admitted to using scotch locks. Have fun replacing those connections in two years.

Agreed. I don't think SE is actually a licensed dealer for many of their products, so certain warranties won't apply (at least it was like this years ago). Crutchfield's advisers have a lot of knowledge, and they can walk you though the entire process. You pay for that convenience, though.

Adapters are a much better investment than splicing wires. I had to send my stereo back for a warranty repair, and it was just a matter of unplugging the adapter to get the old stereo to function again. Look like with that if you start splicing wires.

That's significantly more than the price of this head unit + wiring harnesses (as recommended by Crutchfield) and dash kit. Plus it loses out on the extra features, and will be lower quality because it's an auxiliary/antenna solution, right? I already have a wired auxiliary jack solution, and the audio quality is terrible.
