Replace Stock Non-MP3 Head Unit for Another.

Hello everyone, recently bought a 2008 Cobalt LS sedan. For the price, it's more than enough to serve my needs. A very nice car. But I have one question.

The stock headunit that came with the car is just the cd player...no mp3 support. Can this headunit be exchanged for the headunit out of an upgraded model with the mp3 support?

Switch one for the other? Not that I am looking to do it right away, but was just curious.

Thanks for the info.

Chevy really must have gone cheap in 2008, my 2007 LS came with an MP3 /aux input jack, and it it trully bone stock.

yeah, I figured that pretty much all "stock" units supported mp3 playback these days.

Was thinking if I could take the headunit from an LT or an SS and change mine for it...I don't really need the functionality of a more expensive unit. just the mp3 support.

Right on. My car doesn't have the pioneer setup or onstar, so I kinda thought they would be interchangeable. Always good to ask the people who know though.

Thanks for the help.

sorry...have another question. My local auto salvage has an mp3 headunit from a 2009 G5. Does anyone know if that would work in a 2008 Cobalt LS? Unfortunatley they didn't have anything from a Cobalt.
