want the new MP3 player
to look as if it was factory installed.
When you say "factory installed", what do you exactly mean ?
I replaced mine (97 Accord) with an 80 dollar unit.
You have to buy some kind of adapter plate and once installed, it looks
Mine has a removable silver face plate, while the original had a black face
The adapter plate also has the "hole" underneath the radio, and is such that
four CD can sit in it.
Since I have the MP3 capable one, all my music is on those four CD's.
