I am looking for a GM-fit CD/Radio for my Fiero and saw this on eBay (auction has ended but I think the company is still selling this Radio for the same price): http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=324175416 . I was wondering if this is a good deal. Or do you have any other suggestions for a good CD/Radio?

I'm not that into radios but I just picked up 2 Jensen CM715K s CD/Cassette Stereo (GM sized)receivers for $225 ea. The store said they were being discontinued but all the catalogs I've seen call this model new for 2000. Before any one asks 1 is in my car and the other is in my son's. Jobber price is $285. I know that doesn't help you but I found that not much is available in the GM(1 1/2 DIN I think) size.

I'm really happy with the Pioneer deck I've got in my fiero. All their stuff seems to be great quality. Only about 170 bucks new, and it's 45 by 4.

I've seen the Jensen decks but to be honest, they look a bit... errr... tacky. GT Bastard, what model re you talking about? Is it a GM-fit?

Sorry, just running the adaptor so it doesn't look factory. It still looks nice though.

Cliff, I have a Pioneer DEH-46DH which is the GM size that is installed without needing any adapters. I really like mine. Check out www.crutchfield.com

Yea, breaker one-nine, Cliff! Didn't know there was a big demand for CB radios in Europe, good buddy. The U.S. went through a craze like that in about the mid-70's. It was a lot of fun--for about 3 months. Oh, wait, did you say cD???? I'm so embarrassed. Never mind.

Cliff (and others)... Check these links.
These are on Alpine's USA site, but they are a direct fit. Don't know if the tuners will do European channel spacing or not, though. http://www.alpine1.com/html/De_n_149_n_n.html http://www.alpine1.com/html/De_n_150_n_n.html
They are a bit more expensive than the Pioneer, but thought they might be of interest.
Also try this one... http://www.aatechnologies.com/pmyradios/pontiac/pmyradios_pontiac.htm
Factory GM radios. These are refurbs, but the prices are good! You will probably need a harness adapter.

aatechnologies is a good one. Also try Crutchfield ( www.crutchfield.com ). They seem to have about the best prices I've been able to find. I'll probably buy something from there whenever I can afford it (next summer?).

Cliff,

get yourself a Pontiac CD player like a 99 or 2000 model. They sound pretty good, have 18 presets, and a 7 band equalizer.

got a refurb model and haven't had a problem with it. Also its very easy to install with the harness/antenna adaptor and as a bonus, (important to me) the lighting is the same red as the rest of the fiero, otherwise you'll get green lighting which will look wierd.

just my 2 cents
