First time poster here...figured this was the best place to get accurate help! So I have a 2005 G6 GT and my cd changer recently went bad. Apparently GM wants $349 for the radio and then another $100 for the shop I go to for installation. This seems pretty steep for just the stock radio....any ideas on where i should go from here? I'm just assuming going the Best Buy route for a radio, but wasn't sure if there were any better ideas out there.

$100 metra kit, $200 radio, $20 some wiring and about 2-3 hours install
If I buy a used single cd player from a 2008 G6, installation can be done on my own correct? I would really prefer to keep the display and steering wheel controls. Thats why im looking into buying a used single cd player.

Thanks for your help. much appreciated.

I hear you have to get it set to your car using a tech 2 from the dealer.. think its because of the computer that talks to the radio. Never had it done but I hear is around 50-70$ but i guess your dealer might be different

I installed mine myself...its not hard. Yes it does need to be programmed with a Tech2 - which is the laptop the service techs use. Doesnt take 5 minutes though.
