My Ride: 2005 BMW 325i
Question Hooking Up After Market Navi

I am considering putting Pioneer Avic D2 or Z1 in my car. I am aware about the facts that one has to cut the vents and get a bezel to acomodate/mount the unit. My 2 questions (that make me hesitate so far are:
1.) Can you still use the factory amplifier and speakers after the install and how whould they perform?
2.) It there a writeup that specifically address the system wiring to the factory harness?
