Question

I want to get a CD player but I'm not sure what to get. I don't need speakers or anything, just the player. (I'm not going to attempt installing it myself - but it was a good idea Jessie) My car came with only a tape/radio one.

I've seen a bunch on sale but they are all rectangular. I have a Volkswagen and need an oval-ish one.

I assume I need to find one with a special round head to fit - a square one is not going to fit in correctly?

Right? : /

    Surely some boy can answer this....where are they?!

    I would tell you,but my car has what it came with, as I would never know how to do this either!

    you might want to go to the dealer and ask if you can have one of the factory ones installed. if you buy one from best buy or someplace they will just stick a small rectangular one in the round hole with some third party "fit kit" that fills the space with nondescript black plastic and looks pretty shitty. If you want it to be nice, pay the extra money to a VW dealer.

    I agree with baggiegenes.

    I dont agree with Baggiegenes. Go to a good dealer and they will make it look like it belongs. I have a friend who owns D.I.X. Stereo on Dirksen pkwy. He could probably help you out. They make kits to fit all cars and the dealer will charge you $300. Everything from the dealer is expensive.

    I hate Green Familiy Volkswagon - there's no way I'm going there for something I can get someplace else.

    And everything VW is crazy expensive - like a new flower for my car is $12. (no, I wasn't looking for one - I just found it online)

    If possiable, I don't want to pay over $200, but I also don't want some weirdo cheap-looking plastic part

    Maybe I'll try Jeff's buddy's place

    Thanks for the help guys!!

    Tell me if you are going there and I will stop by with you and tell him to hook you up.

    Where is it on Dirkson? I'll try to go by this weekend. My parents said they would buy me one for Christmas ...

    (the perks of being young and spoiled :)

    Meliss,

    Get online and search. There are several sights that will list options for your car.

    If you find one, I might be able to call some people that do that kind of thing and get you a deal...

    ...or I will do it when I am home in a couple of weeks.
