Untold Legend - Received!

I purchased my 1995 Legend LS March 3 2006! I have no clue what to do with myself!

Deep green, original premium Bose stereo system, rims and tint - straight factory! 164,000 miles, clean with very few body blemishes (the usual parking ding or two), cheap! This car drives like a dream. The engine feels as if it was just broken in (and it was)! Passed Virginia Emissions and Maryland inspection EASY!

I have monitored the heat guage religiously, not a twitch! I can't believe my luck. In a month or two, the modifications will begin, starting with rims and tint.

I'm also looking for an OEM CD Changer. Difficult to come by, even on eBay! Any suggestions?

It's great to join this forum. Alot of you have the most beautiful classic Legend's and I hope to stretch by baby as far as you have in the future. This one's a keeper.

Welcome and congrats on Legend. If you dont already know, search for newbie faq and you will find a lot of useful information. These guys here are Legend Guru's there is nothing you can ask that someone on here will not be able to answer.

By the way, forget trying to find a OEM CD changer, youre better off getting the Alpine CHM S634 (or S630, I forget the number exactly - someone correct me) unit and the ALP-HON/ACU adapter cable for the trunk. Those are newer and will last longer than a 11 Yr old unit.

The alpine unit is between $30 to $70 - eBay and the adapter is $15 tops.

Welcome again.

Thank You....

for the warm welcome everyone. I will post pics as soon as possible. I'll check out the aftermarket disc changers, it's not a bad suggestion, though I am a fan of keeping it original.

Again, thanks for the welcome. I'll be chatting with you soon!

I wouldn't bother trying to find an OEM CD Changer. The original ones were made by Alpine. You can find one at Crutchfield for about $275. You'll also need an adaptor cable that you can get at Crutchfield as well. Maybe $300 total.

All I had to do then was to make an adaptor bracket to adapt it to the car. The new one is smaller than the orignal. It looks factory.

Why not just get an AUX adapter and an IPOD? The Aux adapter should run you ~$50 if it plugs in where the CD changer should go and $30 if you get the kind that FM modulates and goes through the antenna.

I actually have one of the old school tape inserts plugged into my MP3 player type deals. Please tell me more about this adapter and where I can find one.

Thanks,

There are three types:
1)AUX Adapter (my choice): $50
Brings out two RCA plugs to inject the signal where the CD changer was going to be. You just get a 3.5mm to 2 RCA cable and you're set. IMO, this is the right combination of signal quality vs. price.
http://www.logjamelectronics.com/piehonaux.html


2) Fancier AUX Adapters: allow for limited control of the IPOD via the stereo controls (playlist, track forward, track back).
Con: Stupid expensive and can prevent you from using the controls on the IPOD (since the IPOD thinks its docked). Might make sense if you have a tiny IPOD like a Nano.
http://www.logjamelectronics.com/piehonpcpod.html


3) FM modulator adapters / Fanicer FM Modulator Adapters
Harmon Kardon Drive+Play $30
http://www.crutchfield.com/S-9YajjMA...asp?i=108DPFMT
- FM modulator that squirts the signal into your antenna wire.
- better than normal FM transmitter but your quality is limited by the radio
- Worse signal quality compared to a non-FM modulated solution.
- Also comes with a ver that includes fancy screen that lets you actually control the IPOD. Too bad it costs as much as an IPOD
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...lance&n=172282

All solutions can be installed unobtrusively but require you to take out your factory stereo. It's not that hard if you just take some time and read up on how to dissassemble your dash. The only sign that I have an IPOD is a little black wire that comes out on the passenger's side of the center console. I usually allow it to fall below the seat line so you can't even see it from the outside of the car.

I did some research on this earlier, but was unable to find this much information. Thank you very much for taking the time to answer this in such detail.

I'll include this mod in my new pics!
