Anything is possible but its not likely your car is wired for it. The DSP came with a 6 channel amp for years 2000-2002. Very strange wiring to be honest. I pulled my entire HI FI package out.

If your looking for improved sound I doubt you'll be happy with the DSP system. Its probably not worth the effort to install even if you got it for free.

My 2000 has the DSP factory installed and I'm not impressed with it. I would replace it but I don't want to change the factory look.

+1, the DSP isn't worth the effort. I have it but wouldn't even notice if it wasn't there.

ok thanks guys for your thoughts.

i have a 2000 so since i got the dsp unit already i just wanted to add to the stock look. i figure its just a plug/play thing if the wire is there already.

does anyone know the person that can get the radio codes for the oem cd player?

i have the serial number.

also do you have to buy the stereo removal key from becker? i need to pull my radio out.

Check out the radio code thread over at Renntech. Loren can give you some ideas on the code to input.

You need the right key, but it doesn't have to come from Becker. Ebay has them. I've got an extra pair I'll sell you if you're interested.
