    i bought a cd player for my car today. its a JVC KD-G200 cd player that i bought at Circuit City. my car doesnt have a radio for it thats why i purchased it. with tax it was $127.19. it came with free installation and 3 free cds (gotta send in paperwork for them) along with it which was a bonus for me. anyways, heres the link to check it out: JVC KD-G200 cd player

    **edit** didnt get the install done because the installation kit is $50 for my car :eek: will get it next week after i get paid.

    Yea I like my car, I just bought a CD player and slid it right in :) perfect size!

    But damn man, 50 dollars seems kind of for a installation kit, did you have a fucking record player in there before or what?

    LOL no. the OEM radio is a double DIN if i am not mistaken. heres a pic to show ya how big the hole is where the factory tape deck was:

    [​IMG]

    if you look above the shifter and see the hole, thats the hole for the radio. its pretty damn huge in a 90-93 Integra. i am guessing some kinda tray slides in there making the radio a single DIN with some kinda spot to put stuff in under it. i dunno. i didnt get to look to see what the installation kit looked like and what all came with it. we will see what the kit looks like next week. i got some wiring to do tomorrow for it to get it prepped. there are Pioneer speakers in the car that arent wired up, so i gotta wire all those in and then all i have to do is get the installation kit and put it in and i should be rocking in no time :)

    You know B...I got a little kit like that for free through crutchfield when I got my deck, yet I didn't use the little slide piece thing...before you go buy that, lets try to see if that piece will work for you.

    I think it is ugly, but at least it works, unlike mine.

    Go to your local surplus unlimited, bennys, or anything like that..> They will have the install kit..> I bought the Install kit, wiring harness, & Antenna adapter for my blazer and it was $21. The reason they tell you its $50 is so they can make some money back on the "free install"

    Not to mention installing it in a g2 teg is EASY... DIY!

    That's way too much for an "installation kit". Do it yourself- "free" install shops generally do a pretty crappy job wiring things up anyway. I've seen so many butt splices and twist connectors from Circuit City and Best Buy installs that it's not funny anymore.

    when i installed a stereo in the 240sx, thats a double din as well... paid 20 bucks for a metra install kit from the local car audio store. 50 is a little intense. i had to modify the kit like hell to get it to fit. the 240's double din hole seems to be more like a trapezoid then a square.


    also, i woulda shelled out a bit more for mp3 capability. :)

    I didnt see this past awhile back but... the stock stereo is not double DIN.. the stock stereo was actually DIN so there was a piece missing... from your car. on the stock stereo in integra's there was a little coin tray thin under the stereo.

    JUST SOME FYI
