Car stereo CD player

Found 4th May 2007
Looking for a cheap car stereo CD player. Not sure if one size fits all... My girlfreind had the front panel stolen from her car stereo. The car is a Renault Twingo.

Any good deals out there? Does one size fit all? Can you buy just the front panel? Cant remember the make/model of the stereo but can find out.

Thank you,
Razta

Quite hard to buy just the front panel.. Did it come with the Car? If so, your local dealer may be able to help.

Afaik you can't legally obtain just the front panel. They're intentionally made like that so you can take the front panel away with you, so to try and pinch the stereo would be pointless as it would be useless without the front panel.......which I assume is why your g/f's got swiped, either they have a body for that model already or they'll be coming back for the rest of it if they know what car it belongs too.

What features would you be looking for in a new one? Output? mp3 capabilities? usb ports? pre-amps? etc...

Have a look in Aldi/netto/lidl, you should be able to find one for £30

you can legally buy the front panel, its just not simple. usually. You would require proof of purchase of the unit, and to be honest, its very often close to the price of buying a new unit. But, it is possible. you can even buy faceplates on ebay. Most arent coded, its just a case of finding the correct model.
