New Astra - adding non-Vauxhall CD player?

    Does anyone know whether one can add a "third-party" CD/radio unit to
    the new Astra (2004)?

    From the brochure the multi-function display looks to be tightly tied
    in to the CD - have they designed this so that one can only fit a
    Vauxhall audio unit?

    (That would be bad news for skinflints like me looking to buy the
    lowest-spec model, and also for anyone faced with replacing a failed
    unit later on)

    Vauxhall sell an adapter plate which will take a standard size CD player.
    Other people do too.

    Vauxhall also sell the CD players at a competitive price. Talk to your
    dealer before buying elsewhere as the standard one works with the remote
    display without modification.
