sorry this is gonna take a bit of time! ive got a rover 400, i put in a year or two ago, a sony t69 cd changer. to go into my original tape player, and also an adaptor/pug! to allow the steering wheel controls to be used! then had a few probs with the changer! (basically when playing cds sound would only come from one side of the car speakers!? but when playing tapes or radio all speakers worked!), so i thought id buy a single playing unit as it would sound better! looked on net and asked a few questions! and apparently was told any cd would fit, but ! if i bought a sony a could use the steering wheel adaptor thingy!!!! id already got! so shopped about and found the sony cdx for about £100 on the net.. trouble was it didnt arrive! so ended up going to halfrauds!!!!!!!!!!! (well it was "free fitting!!!!! i know i know!!!) when i bought it guy said the steering wheel controls would still work,, but!come the day of fitting, the fitting kid sorry guy!!!!! said the lead wouldnt work, as the "sony cd wouldnt talk to the steering wheel controls! wtf!!! so anyway guy put the cd in (very quickly too! soo......... my questions are can i use the original lead? (providing the guy who fitted it didnt remove it!) and according to brochure with new cd the t69 will fit into the cdx 300? (i know it didnt work the speakers last time!!!!!!! but it "may" work now! even if it doesnt i can get the 6 cds out of the changer) and lastly (showing my age here!!!) it came with a remote. but how the hell can you use the remote while youre driving!!!!!!!!? are you supposed to place it somewhere "strategic? or is it only for passenger use!? cheers guys and sorry for such a long post!!!!!
