You need a standard set of radio removal keys or you can bend a wire coat hanger and push it into both holes on the radio fascia to remove. GenuineSaab do an adaptor kit that provides you with a double DIN adaptor and wiring harness.

There is a certain amount of treble but nothing special. A set of components in the front would be needed for a more balanced sound. I like my music bass heavy so its not an issue for me.
