Replacement CD Player for the AUXR8

G'Day all, I want to lose the factory CD Player from the XR8 and wanted to know if there was a decent replacement for it in the full size (Double Din Unit).

Would like to get an MP3 player but at the moment there doesn't seem to be too many with reasonable price tag.

ANy ideas on brands. Budget is restricted about $350.00...

Re: Replacement CD Player for the AUXR8

not sure if your going to be able to get a double DIN for $350, unless you can get a second hand one

Only milk and juice come in 2 Litres...

Protien, Creatine, and other supplements all below retail, PM me for a price list...

Mate, replace the stereo with a single DIN and get one of the pockets from ford that fits underneath it so you dont have a hole there. I got my JVC mp3 head unit and 12 disc mp3 stacker from JB HI-FI for $750 the lot, drop by and speak to them if you have one locally. They will usually try to work you out a good deal.

Yeah good idea, JB do some good deals, but for christ sake, HAGGLE, you can always get the price down at JB's

Re: Replacement CD Player for the AUXR8

OK thanks for the info Guys... it has been a big help.

Richard if I do decide to take the Double unit then I will certainly email you and we can haggle over the price.

This forum is certainly worth the time spent reading and asking questions.

thanks again

Mick
