i would like to get a head unit so i can run my ipod as well.

and i've seen some people just putting the head unit under the factory cd player right next to the lighter. if i do this what would happen to my factory cd player?

this has gotten me confused, do i just keep it turned off and use the aftermarket one? :S

cheers again

Make sure you get the amplified version of the cable, the non-amped version sucks.
