    I want to replace the FM/Cassette in my Elantra 2003 with an FM/CD player.
    Do many of the aftermarket players fit the Elantra? Can you recommend a
    particular make/model? Thanks!

    I've replaced stock FM/CD in my 2002 Elantra GT with a Kenwood Excelon
    KDC-X579 CD/MP3 player
    and it fits and works great. There are many others that fit your car.
    Check out Crutchfield http://www.crutchfield.com - they will show you models
    that do. I've been buying from Crutchfield for over 10 years and find
    their the service and selection excellent. You can decide to buy elsewhere
    while still using Crutchfield for reference, of course.

    I enjoy the convenience of being able to carry a few MP3 or WMA disks with
    15 or so albums each instead of dozens of CDs, so I definitely recommend
    spending a little extra for an MP3 player. I also recommend replacing
    factory speakers (as I did), as the speakers in my Elantra GT were
    disappointedly cheap.

    I appreciate your reply - thanks! I looked on Circuitcity.com and didn't
    find a single unit that fits the Elantra so I wasn't hopeful until now.

    Walmart also sells such.

    Recently I paid them about
    $28 for a c.d./cassette adapter (to adapt the am-fm-cassette to play

    I noticed they apparently sell the part(s) you need too.
