Can be done for as little as $50 for a crap unit. Expect to pay around $100'ish for pioneer that'll also play .mp3.

Won't I have to take out the current in-dash and get a cd-player first?

There's a wiring harness that fits between the new deck and your car's connector's that you will need.

The toughest part is figuring out how to take the dash apart. What kind of car do you drive? Some cars are much easier to work with than others.

It should be fairly easy to pull your dash apart. I worked on a 2000'ish civic that was easy.

I'd recommend you snag a Chiltons or Haynes manual if you're unsure. Any auto parts store will have them, especially for such a common car. You'll find diagrams on how to take apart your entire car, but it will give you alot of confidence when working with the dash just as well.

Yeah I was thinking about getting one of those manuals. :)

Should be a snap-on dash piece. Two snaps, two screws, three cords unplugged, use wiring adapter, three cords plug to new unit, test unit, screws back on, dash piece back on, profit.

Real simple.

*sigh* take the 2 (or 4) screws out of the surround around the radio. then the 4 screws holding in the radio. pop the new kit in and you're done.
