You might need to a put in a radio band expander to pick up other radio stations but might be easier to installing new radio.

You can buy a band expander for $30... or for $80 this guy will deliver and install it:

or you could spend $500 and get a DVD player c/w rear view camera.

Do band expanders change the numbers on the screen though? I thought they just offset the frequency of the radio which means the screen will read incorrectly.

yea they just offset the frequency,
doesn't really matter what the screen says if you have a decent station, depending on the band expander the frequency is adjusted around 14.2 mHz different, so you then take say "The Edge" at 94.5, minus 14.2 to get 80.3, go to that on the jap import radio and you'll have The Edge

Nothing better than the feeling of hitting boost.......................and still thinking you have control!!
