His ya

As far as I know it will fit and work
But do you research I think there was a recall a while back in the cd head units so if your looking at one on eBay be carefull Incase you get a pre recall one
Best option give mini matt a ring he might have one and now for shore

Hi

I realy can remember it my have been a TIS and not a recall and I would imagine if your is gen 1 it is ok. I think they were just replacing them as they came in broken. I think they moved away from alpine to Siemens and thinking about it now it may have been the cd changer
Sorry
I think it was a power supply failure nothing major so if your is working don't touch it :-)))
Like they say if it's not broken don't fix it :-)

Three are first gen (late) so hopefully we'll be alright!!! Saying that my works has a wave tape which works well!

Certainly worth noting, although I'd imagine they'd refuse to fix it now Sad

I have a cd head unit in my car and it works with the disc changer. I believe I had a tape deck in my car before hand although I never changed it.

LazyBones came out of the factory with a cd head unit plus cd changer. When I said that was what I wanted to order the salesman wasn't sure I would be able to do that but I could and all works fine.
