Looking at upgrading my radio in my car...
My cd player doesnt work in my factory 2006 G6 radio. Im looking at replacing it with either a double din or a single din with a flip out screen and the metra kit for my DIC.
If I go with the double din, and do not use the metra kit, which "chimes" will I lose? Also, will I really lose anything important? Im not worried about the oil life, mpg, trip etc., but if something major happened would something show up on the gauge cluster? Like a low oil sensor, or a general check engine light?
And if I went with the single din and metra kit, how hard is the wiring? I know there are 2 plugs going into the radio, is one strictly for DIC that would plug into the metra kit, and would the other one be used to do the wiring for the radio?
Im leaning towards the double din without a metra kit. The metra kit seems to look pretty bad in the pictures I have seen of it, really cheap looking.
