    It seems to me that I recall there being something about them that won't work right. I think its with the signals. But I maybe wrong! would'nt be the first time!

    I dont think hes too bothered about listening to the radio over there (tells me its full of tripe country and western anyway! lol)
    But its the cd changer he will be using. So i wonder if when all wired up, will it all work correctly.
    thanks

    Tripe country..... Where in the hell is he at? I don't see why it won't work. Still works off of a 12volt system.

    The radio is on different frequencies but does overlap,

    The radio down here in Miami is brilliant, today I heard a windup call from a young black girl to her mum, she was hysterical and said she had just been pulled over by the police and the policeman threw 3 bags of dope on her lap and said she was under arrest unless she sucked his penis, after a lot of screming her mum said 'do what ya gotta do girl'

    Headunits over there are less than half the price they are over here, he might as well go out and buy a nice excelon or something

    Kenwoods are good as the higher spec ones will let you switch between Europe and US frequencies.

    Thanks for the replies, looks like it should work then.Dont think he wants to buy another stereo, he aint got a car over here now and he gonna be over there for another year working. As long as the cd changer works he will be happy

    Thanks again boys.
