Also, you mentioned being able to save off of the CD changer. I'm pretty sure the cd changer does not have the expansion port to connect a slave cable like the Sirius does. So you can use a Sirius + CD changer, Sirius+ipod, but not cd changer + ipod (without splicing, hacking etc).

Great pics too!

That is true. I don't know many people here with CD Changers still back there (there is the one dude with the red wagon) but there was a thread that went around a while back that did state earlier gen CD Changers (pre-2002 I think) did not allow for slaving other devices. I only assumed that later gen CD Changers allowed for slaving capabilities.
