Question on Stereo Replacement

I want to replace my stereo with a modern system that allows for spotify and Map/Gps.

The one I want is outrageously expensive in my opinion at $1200 (Alpine). When looking at this in the Crutchfield catalog, I see that there is additional charges for installation package that enables you to install without cutting wires, etc..

Then, I was looking at Suncoast Porsche and they sell a trim package for aftermarket stereo to help it look more factory and also includes a wiring installation package. The package is around the same price as Crutchfield at $275 BUT, if you have Bose Surround (I do) and want to use the Bose Amplifier (I Do), this drives the price to $775. Good grief, a new stereo is going to end up being $2k by the time I'm done. And, it's $500 more just to connect to Bose? Should I be replacing the Bose amp, I'm sure and Alpine amp is less.

Just venting!

The reason the Bose system is so expensive is that it uses the MOST bus, which is fiber optic, instead of the normal wires on the non-Bose system.
