i really like the sound of the Bose speakers, but wish i had MP3 support for the CD player...so i'm wanting to go with a new aftermarket stereo unit.

is it a straight-forward install of a new stereo head unit to work with the OEM Bose speakers? i'm searching the forum for concrete information, but there's alot of stuff here.

the consensus is that any change will involve stereo-unit and speakers and wiring - the full monty. a partial swap-out of the bose system isnt feasible.

however, this is an alternative...10-disc changer...integrates w/ bose factory stereo, including steering-wheel controls...and plays MP3s.

that cd changer sounded NEAT as heck.. but i researched it, and all the online stores that had it said it had been DISCONTINUED. I wonder why? Maybe they're lieing.. haha.
