The only factory CD player is a 6-disk changer, typically mounted in the
trunk. By having the controls on front, you can add a changer yourself.
There are many 3rd party changers that are much cheaper than the factory.
I have a 10-disk in mine. The main part of the radio and amplifier is
actually back in the trunk. The front panel is just the display and tape

Mine is a '02 Taurus SEL. My car has a factory installed 6-disc CD
changer in the console. The factory installed CD Changer is standard on all
Taurus SEL models. They are optional on the SE and SES models.
The CD player is at WWW.Bought4Less.com
It is about $240 complete, 5 minute PLUG-IN installation.

Oh, really? So the wiring for the CD changer is already installed?
Just buy the changer and plug it in, plug it in?!?!? Wow!
I actually saw a 10-disc CD/MP3 player at Best Buy that I want, but I'm
not sure how much it costs yet. But it's one of the few MP3 players
that will play directly through the radio without using an FM modulator.
You control the whole thing with the existing radio controls, removing
the need for a remote control. I'm not sure how it handles navigating
MP3's. Maybe it treats each folder on the disc as if it's its own CD.
If you have ten folders on each of the ten discs, then you essentially
have 100 CD's in your trunk, right at your fingertips.
I had been using a portable CD/MP3 player -- the Sony Atrac, but for
some reason the power just seems to die on it for no reason. At first I
thought it might have been the wire from the cigarette lighter adapter,
but I removed that and put fresh batteries in the player and the power
still dies. Kind if irritating, too, because it's a nice player. I
only wonder how I'd be able to pause CD when listening through a disc
changer. I listen to radio shows I download off the 'net because I
can't get them over the radio due to poo reception.
