long story short, I can't put an aux input in my 06 G6 stereo, no band or p-type button, and I don't want to use an FM modulator...can I buy a factory stereo off like ebay from an 08 or 07 G6 and use it in my car? And even if the plug fits, is the software used on the newer models possibly different? the dealership was clueless. any help would be great!

it seriously takes all that work to take the radio out?!!?!?!?! are you kidding me?!?!?!!?!?! holy crap!!!!!!!
Hey Lampoon....
trying to avoid messaging you so that the info can be for all to read... haha!
But I am going to have an 08 radio installed in my 06 soon, and I was wanting to be super clear on some things bc I tend to run into many dumbA's, jerks, all of the above when it comes to dealing with my baby girl.

Am I correct in stating that when they go to activate the radio and the Tech 2 stuff has certain questions....
when it asks for the year, they are to input the year of the radio, not the car? right? Is there anything else I should know?
It's just that everyone is so quick to say, "we can't do that" "you can't do that" and other shite, so I want to be on top of my game and not having them waste my time/money (don't want them dragging it out!). And let's just state the obvious--they never want to believe a young girl knows what she's talking about bc they're MEN, and MEN know more about CARS all the time! ha!
