well, they are interchangable... two things you need to check:
1- Bose yes/no
2- MCS generation first gen (blue screen background) / second Generation (black screen background)
Bose can be verfied with a quick look at your D pillar (all the way in the rear), if you have speakers there, then you have a Bose component system.
Screen color can be verfied by turning the radio on, and observing the color of the screen backgound where the frequency is displayed...
Anything beyond that can be fixed with a STAR Scanner, with a process called version coding, where you enable/disable modules, such as CD changer, phone, GPS, VCS, Satellite radio...etc.
