You are absolutely right, I understand both approaches. My beater 1991 C900 has an MP3 player - but I have purchased on the net used original tape and CD player, which will go into another future C900, when I can afford a real classic to keep forever. A true classic deserves all original equipment. My '96 9000 Aero has all original audio - no need to improve on that Harman Kardon sound. I even removed the optional CD changer and sold it - my trunk is more usable that way. My '2000 9-3 Viggen (eh... my wife's, actually) has both a CD player and a changer. I would pull the changer, but it is wife's car... Besides, this newer version is better integrated in the trunk - mounted on the side, not on the floor, not interfering with the trunk quite as much (my rubber trunk mat can be laid flat and not folded). In any case, it is also a premium HK, and not improvements are necessary. -Dima "Nasty Bob" <nospamspeedypancakenospamail.com> wrote in message news:ph2Wd.193835$68.57578nospamnews.blueyonder.co.uk... > Point taken... > But our new CD/mp3 player didn't involve any extra "un-original" wiring > looms to the trunk or other modifications.
