A place to start with replacing stereo in '07 G6

So I'm loving my 07 SE.

Factory deck is base , no mp3, no XM, no 6 cd changer.
The sound is very impressive for a factory.

I took advantage of my extended warranty plan with GM and had the back speakers replaced *cough*made a funny sound*cough* need to be replaced *ahem*
So that's done, sounds great.

Thing is, no mp3 capability is killing me. Xm and 6 cd changer I can live without but I really like the info center stuff for mileage, temp and oil & trip stuff etc.

I've seen multiple posts that some say you CAN upgrade, some say not 100%.

What are the options available to me? I imagine if an upgrade is possible from GM that it might cost an arm and a leg right?

I also saw a post or two that mention installing an input for an ipod or mp3 player? What's the success rate on that? Feasibility / cost?

Sorry for all the n00b questions right off the hop, just wanna get my baby sounding the way I want it too :)

Thanks for any info or help!!

I just picked up a spare 08 radio for $100....

So figure about that and some tech2 time is all you would
need if you do the install yourself for a stock replacement
for the AUX. ;)
i'll take that "spare" 08 radio off your hands for $150....quick $50 profit :beer:
You gonna pay for shipping too?? :p

Only dealership's have tech2 and what your paying for is the Tech time.
Different dealershuips charge differently for this. Ive seen it run the gammit.
From free to $80. I paid $80 then found out another dealership wanted half that price. So shop around on the programming fee.

Just call the service dept and ask how much it would cost to reprogram a stock radio.

Im sure that Tech2 laptop costs about 5 grand so nooooo its not that big a pocketbook hit.
If that radio looks new and can play XM then I will. If you are serious about letting it go then PM me. If not then I'm just going to end up buying one off gmpartsdirect.

just to make sure you know. The 08 radio will not play mp3 discs, only an external mp3 player.
