First upgrade to the 9-3

This wound up being the first and only upgrade to our 9-3.

The CD player had a stuck CD for the past couple of years. My wife had grown tired of listening to Pink lol.

Car has 83k, we are dropping it when it hits 100k and the CPO warranty runs out. Just so you know, audio components are not part of the warranty.

I was only willing to spend so much to get this fixed. Single disc players are often $65-100 used on ebay.

The 6cd changer, retailed for something like $600, often selling for $250-300 on ebay. I would of course like to upgrade as it winds up being a factor when selling the car, often adding a few bucks to the book value.

So I found this 6 Cd changer on ebay. For shits and giggles I bid $100 knowing I would lose. I was floored when I won it for $65.

It came nice and clean. I went to the dealer to have it married. He informed me that if it was not correctly divorced that it would be worthless. It cost $49 just to gamble.

I took the gamble.

It works perfectly. $115 total well spent. I wonder how many BASE Linears(15" wheels, manual climate control) have a 6CD changer hehe.

Pic from the auction.

You happen to know how much they were asking? I never saw them.

CD Changer

I have one in excellent condition from an '00 Viggen. Willing to part with it cheap, since I turned the car in. It wasn't divorced properly, but I understand the dealer can unlock it if you give them the VIN from the donor car. If anyone interested, please PM me.
