    There was a time in America when ALL businesses were small and family run. Integrity and service were paramount because referrals were how you grew your business. Nowadays, thats a rarity. Big Box Stores, Best Buy, Target, Car Toys, etc. won't care for you at all compared to a family run business. Personalized service is a dying thing. But in November, after watching a customer's YouTube video on how to add bluetooth music streaming to my C-5 CORVETTE, I came across this company, Discount Car Stereo and gave them a call. I spoke with Jay and he spent all the time I needed to feel comfortable and to understand the ups and downs of what I was wanting to do and how his custom made product would do that for me. The product did EVERYTHING it was claimed to do. Seamless streaming music from my Android thru my car's BOSE stereo. Installation was child's play and took no time. It REALLY was that easy !!! Call Jay, NO PRESSURE, great guy. You will be happy you did !

    I was previously using a $20 Bluetooth to FM converter from Amazon, Also worked well, just was a pain all the time.
    Ordered this last week, installed this morning. Easy job, take your time with the console. Tucked module back behind the head unit, ran the red power cable (supplied) down to the footwell and plugged the tap (also included) to fuse #22. Turned the car to on, got power - selected CD/Aux button on the radio, opened Bluetooth on my iPhone 11, selected the new device, heard the bloop noise, connected and I hit play on Apple Music. Sounded great!
    This thing is perfect, shipping was super fast, install was very easy. Highly recommend this to keep your stock head unit and look.

    I added 'BlueTooth' to my unit in about and hour and it was pretty much 'Plug&Play'. (my '99 did not have all the hookups for the CD changer in the trunk. There is a different part number if you have a later model C5 with the changer).
    It took me longer to remove all the plastic bezel than it did to hook up the module. I still have all my factory options for FM/AM/CD/AUX. You just push AUX and it flips over to Bluetooth mode. Really, this is a no-brainer and probably one of the best mods I've done. Streaming Spotify has never been easier.
