Re: factory radio

I think that the worst idea is using an Audi factory unit from the 80's. They
sound bad, are under powered, and play tapes slower than required. Please do
yourself a favor and go buy a Sony, Alpine, or brand of your choice. I personally
have a nice alpine unit, which is nice because the CD changer will fit on the
shelf under the steering column.
