That rear door delete really drives up the retail price.

Slashed! To 40% over book value. To be fair, cars are only worth what someone will pay for it, which might not be some the same number as an arbitrary number in a book/website. And that number is somewhere under $24,500 in this case.

There's a special cable you need because of course there is, but the other end is an 1/8" jack.

The factory in-dash CD player already had aux-in, so I upgraded from the tape player to the CD player. It's the only thing I use. I should remove the changer to save weight.
