Are 986 bose dash speakers still this same garbage?

I doubt it.  The 'garbage' is 4 ohm and Bose use 2 ohm impedance - so it would have to be specially made garbage. ;)

I'm doing the conversion tomorrow with the same speakers as OP.

The new speakers have a positive and negative terminal but the original speaker doesn't have any indication - can I connect the new speaker terminals to either side of the retained connector block?

Pretty sure there is a + sign on the positive terminal of the plastic socket. It's not that obvious but it is there if you look closely.

Luckily it's easier than that thanks to google - left hand speaker and the yellow/brown plug cable is negative; right hand is red/brown.

Thanks @cj225 used exactly the same speakers and a great improvement particularly for the money.

I did my dash speakers by butchering the originals speaks a few weeks ago... I used JL Audio JL C2-400X at the recommendation of Pulse in Hadleigh.
