ben_t is an unknown quantity at this point
I just bought a Kenwood stereo head unit as it closley matched the rest of the interior but more importantly plays mp3 and wma.

Is there anything I should pay attention to when installing the unit as I am doing it myself. I think the wiring is pretty straight forward (the manual says to wire the antenna controller to the film-antenna amplifier), but are there any problems in mounting the unit in?

In there at the moment is a Panasonic cassette deck, which I think is non-oem. It is one of those units where the whole thing slides out.

I didn't install my kenwood's in my car, but I have disconencted them and put them back in and it was no problem at all.
