OK, there have been a bunch of similar posts as far as getting a new unit.
First off the cd changer is probably your problem. My dads m3 changer went out and the same thing happened although he still gets radio.
Second - personally i would buy a new head unit. I would look around and find a unit with the features and style that you want. You will find that some of the highest recommended units on here are by Clarion, Alpine, and Nakamichi. All of these should be able to change the color or the buttons and such. The Nakamichi is probably the most expensive but can definately look factory.
I bought a Clarion head unit and love it. It has great sound quality and is all black, no flashy silver(non factory looking stuff). It also has the lights that can match the amber color almost perfectly. Plus it plays mp3 and wma so i fit around 22 cds(albums) on one physical cd.
Do a search and read around in the audio forum and you will find a wealth of information, plus some pics of units installed. As for the units I recieved great customer service from crutchfield.com and that is a place to start to look. I do not trust Bestbuy or Circuit city and those places with installing in my car. There are some other things you will need to install but decide if you want that or not.
Man now my hands are tired from typing.
