2. i read something about an interface kit? i want to use everything stock from the car, event the 8¨ subwoofer.
3. what else?

You will need your headunit of choice, antenna adaper 12-22 bucks, dash kit 17-25 bucks, and the interface 100-250 bucks.

Mine was an 07 not sure if they differ. But I uses...
dash kit- Metra 99-6511BB (best buy)
antenna- Scosche VWA3B (abc warehouse)
interface-PAC C2R-CHY4 (abc warehouse)

I also removed the metal ring/hoop that surrounds the factory unit. This was done with out removing any more of the dash.

Little tricky but it worked out great.

Go to the crutch field web site and plug in your vehicle. It will tell you everything you'll need to do the install.

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

The interface I used for my 2012 with the MYGIG and infinity system is the PAC c2a-chy23. It worked great but I have since switched to an alpine pxe-h660 for more tunability.

Oops sorry, I just realized you were going to use an aftermarket head unit.

Check out Crutchfield. They include all the harnesses for whatever your application may be with any headunits you buy. Their pricing isn't always the best but their support is top notch.

If you find them too pricey, check out Sonic Elextronix. http://www.sonicelectronix.com/ I've never tried their tech support, but their prices are very competitive.
