Stereo & Electronics - So I was thinking...
06-19-2008, 12:02 PM
I just got back from San Diego, and down there I rented a nice little Pontiac G6 to get me around. The stereo and A/C control panel were really nice and "modern" looking. The stereo and AC boards in my firebird feel dated and old to me....I mean they didn't change anything since they began the slant-nose version of the GenIV firebird.
How difficult would it be to transpose the G6's radio system and/or A/C system into the firebird? I feel doing this would really help revamp the interior of the car a little. Lemme know what y'all think.

basically its not gonna happen
if the g6 has manual climate controls you might be able to pull it off but the radio isnt gonna work

if you could pull of the climate control the radio (non oem) should be easy. Go with a touch screen after market stereo.

what are some good touch screens that won't deep-six my bank account? So the A/c controls are a no go?

I like the Alpine models myself, but they are expensive (ebay is considerably cheaper if you can install yourself).

If you don't need GPS navigation, there are nice double DIN touch screen units from Pioneer and Kenwood. You can upgrade from the factory 1.5 DIN to double DIN with out major dash modifications but you do need a modified trim bezel. Do a search on "double DIN" and you'll find a number of recent threads on how to do it (I have one myself).

crutchfield has a nice screen called valour i think and its comparable to all major brands and its cheaper than the expensive name brands
