Default RE: violet/yellow wire on the back of the stereo.

That's the PCI bus from the body computer. One thing it does is monitor whether the convertible top is up or down and if the top is down, the configuration of the audio is changed slightly. Also, the stereo is, to a certain extent, self-diagnostic, for instance, if a speaker is shorted out, it senses that. If it finds a fault, it sends a fault code to the body computer, and that fault code can be read by the dealer using his equipment. You lose all that when you put in an aftermarket stereo.
