    DVD-ROM (Cant find a slim dvd rom) Can anyone recommend me a good one.
    Radio (Dont know what usb radio i should use)
    Rear camera.

    CD/DVD issue:

    try here: http://www.logicsupply.com/product_i...roducts_id/173 or here http://www.logicsupply.com/product_i...products_id/88

    I found those a few months ago and plan on updating my system with them....

    as for Radio....I use the XM PCR...something to think about if you like: http://www.xmradio.com/xmpcr/, it's cheap too.....compared to the cost of putting XM in a car with a regular cd player.....I need to check and see if you can use a regular car antenna though instead of the one that they provide....

    He's not in the right hemisphere to get XM.

    You can't use a regular car antenna with XM.

    I think maybe she meant an XM car antenna instead of the ones that come with the pcr
