    Don't let them tell you it's not possible! Anything is possible, heh...no, but seriously - I was told I couldn't hack my acura stereo, but guess what?

    I didn't hack a Toyota or Lexus stereo. I did hack a Vauxhall one though (CAR300). Just identified the amplifier line inputs, break the lines, insert a relay which switches over to aux in, and control the relay from your mp3 box on a printer port line (buffered of course) - that way it auto switches over.

    I also hacked my stereo to have a power out signal so that when it switches on, it switches my mp3 box on too. Means I don't need a separate power switch.

    I'll get some pictures on my site one day...

    Just updated my site with pictures/schematics of my Blaupunkt CAR300 Aux-in modifications. Also modded for a switch on signal. URL is below.

    From what I've heard I should expect you to be the first to make a smart *** comment.

    BTW, If I owned a revolving door, I could easly 'hack' it to slam. There! Grrrr
