Was wondering if this Bose radio will work in the Riviera. UL6? Couldn't find if the wiring harness was the same.

It's not going to just plug & play, but for only $20 it could be worth trying. Might work. From pics it appears the bezel is curved on left & right edges, not straight. So you would need to modify it somehow to look good in the Riv's dash. I also read this system may need to be programmed by the dealer, which costs $45.

The radio itself only puts out a pre-amp signal. There are two separate amps required for this! Don't think it's worth the overhaul!

Yeah it could be a bit much. However with some luck a junker with the needed amps is in your neighborhood pick-n-pull.
