Thank you. I have found aftermarket ones that I like from Blaupunkt and Kenwood because I can have both CDs and MiniDisks in the dash. But you must have missed the original postings, and the original point of this thread: That Saab isn't offering sound systems that meet may people's needs. One person was asking about a tape deck and a CD player. My request was for MiniDisk from the factory, like GM provides for the few models they ship to Japan.
