The link you all are talking about is the European version.
A bunch more pix of new Mazda vehicles, including the 6 (or Altenza).
There are also editorial comments athttp://www.autoweek.com/cat_content.mv? port_code=autoweek&cat_code=autoshows&loc_code=index&content_code=03460216(ummm - that link didn't post correctly - word too long - manually cut and paste the text into your browser to read it)The RX-8 looks decidedly retro from that profile.
Also, they made a mistake spelling the wagon's name - it should be Hideous, not Hideout!Lots of pretty ugly vehicles among those photographs - make the Echo look like a work of art in comparison!As for the Protege Wagon photo someone posted, it looks like it was faked in Photoshop, strange background and didproportionate front and rear seating areas - judging from the door designs!
And crutchfield includes all wires, harnesses and (sometimes at no extra cost) adapters you need to make your removal and installation a simple plug out, plug in process.
Do it yourself, it'll save you about $40!
As for brands, the Kenwoods are rated among the best, but also consider factors like wattage, number of pre-outs (to connect amps etc), CDRW compatibility, CD Text, 80 minute CD compatibility, ability and method to scan through tracks, ID2 and ID3 (mp3 filename details) compatibility, and ability of the head unit to act as a CD changer controller, for CD changers of the same brand. Then consider which brand has CD changers available that you might like to buy (for a future upgrade).
There are reviews of many car audio products at epinions.com and carreview.com. Take a look at them too.Here is the link to the crutchfield in dash mp3 CD player page http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/S-LGt2fp3JnWK/ProdGroup.asp?c=3&g=62700&s=0
You can specify you vehicle and the web page will be filtered to include the ones athat can be installed easily with no wiring modifications, or just call crutchfield and ask them!I'd recommend Sony, Panasonic, JVC, or kenwood if you want to add a good changer in the future.
Post a report about the installation and your pick here or in the Accessories and modifications board for Mazda Proteges! Good luck!
