cd changer install

If you have a CDR220 then you can not use the CDC-4 Changer. The CDC-4 Changer is MOST (optical bus) only and works with the CDR-23. You will need a CDC-3 Changer a mounting bracket and harness. I got my Becker branded (rather Porsche branded) changer with harness and mounting for under $450 from Continental Imports. The model is Becker Silverstone 2660 and is an exact replacement (except it says Becker). It takes about one hour to install and Jeff and I will be glad to help you... except most of our "work on cars days" in San Jose.

The Porsche CDC-3 is identical to the Becker 2660. We buy and put in the Becker unit as it is about 1/2 the price of the Porsche unit.

The problem is Becker has discontinued the 2660 and replaced it with the 7860. The 7860 has different dimensions then the 2600/CDC-3 so it is not a direct fit on the factory mounting bracket. A year ago Continental told me they were making an adapter so the 7860 would mount on the factory bracket for a Boxster C2. If there is a adapter then I assume it will work with a AWD. If you do not care about using the factory mounting bracket then the 7860 comes with a universal bracket.

If you want to stay with the original CDC-3 then Porsche still sells it. Or you could check with Becker and see if they have any refurbished 2660 units left. I always see both units (used) on ebay. My Boxster friend in San Jose turned in his leased car and removed the 2660 unit from his car if you are interested. He has the harness and mounting bracket but the Boxster/C2 bracket is different than a AWD.

Takes about an hour to put it in. You bring the beer. Jeff
