Factory Radio

Post by wprecanico » Tue May 02, 2023 5:14 pm


I'm trying to figure out if I should spend any more time on this or not. I'm trying to stay with a factory radio for my 2009 PW. Currently, I have the REF version of radio installed. I want Hands Free (I live in MA where it's law). Problem is that when I look at the RES or REN radios, the plug is slightly different. Is there a different plug/cable I need to have in order to install the different version of radio, or do I just bag the whole thing and get an aftermarket radio? I don't really want to spend a ton of dough on a radio, and I don't mind the factory look or sound. It's not my daily driver.

Talk w a good custom car stereo guy. They know all about possible adapters, availability, functions etc. I was able to find a warranted RECONDITIONED OEM 6 CD DISC changer for my stock Alpine Infinity 9 speaker system. We discussed several possibilities & the price was less than$ 125 installed ( although I chose to stay original there were upgrade connectors available for hands free connectivity; rear camera’s navigational etc.) 🍀🍀 👍Good luck!!
