    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Thanks to the input on the board, I don't think I want a trunk cd changer anymore once I have a phatbox option. What is the difference between Kenwood and Phatnoise units? There's a seller on Ebay selling Kenwood unit for VW (he has many) for $250 for a complete package. Thank you in advance.
