Default am/fm/cd unit

Does anybody have a pristine am/fm/cd radio unit that will be compatible with a 2008 cruiser? The three letter code is "REF" under the tuning knob. I was instructed not to get an 09 or 10. To stick with a 06, 07 and 08. My cd player in the unit is broke.
Thank you.

Here's one advertised as "brand new" that's about as "pristine " as you're going to get.

Thanks for that link. I skipped that one because of the price and not having the aux input on the front.

You can add an aux input to many of these for less that $15.

Here's a link to where I swapped out my stereo unit and added the aux/bluetooth input.

This is what my original looked like before I replaced it with the 6 CD/MP3 radio.

That's what I thought the factory REF should look like. So they make the REF with and without the AUX input? Now if they made the RAQ with the AUX input, that would be the one to get.

I read somewhere that the 6 CD/MP3 came without the AUX because there was no need to hookup your phone for MP3 playback. I guess they figured a user would just burn a disk rather then plugging in their phone...maybe with the hands free calling option it might work through Bluetooth...dunno.

I have an Aux adaptor and also a Bluetooth adaptor on my RAQ. If the stereo had the AUX adaltor, then that would be a cord hanging down from the dash, don't think I would that, so I'll stay with what I have.
