What year car are you looking to put a radio in? The aux. input was on 07+ cars...I'm assuming the car you want one in is 05-06...I'll save you some time and trouble. The harnesses are different and it is NOT a direct swap. You will have to re-pin the wiring harness to get it to work right. It's not worth your time. If you had an 07 base radio and wanted to upgrade to a MP3/XM unit (that's what I did), then it would be easy, but putting an 07+ radio in an 05-06 is nowhere near easy.

On CSS there were a couple people who tried...I don't think they actually got it finished because of how much work it was...your best bet is to get an aftermarket...you can get a nice Pioneer such as this one that will fit in the space...I know at least a couple people have bought it and it's what I'd consider:

Pioneer FH-P8000BT CD receiver at Crutchfield.com

It has aux. and USB inputs in the rear.

it is an 05. Thanks for clearing that up. I will look into aftermarket options that look as close to factory as posible i guess. the pioneer there doesnt look bad at all.
