    Anyone know of a portland car audio place that sells thier stuff cheaper than Car Toys or Car Stereo City or Stereo King? I need/want a Panasonic (583U or 683U) CD/MP3 player for my wife's car but Car toys wants $220.00 for it. I can find it online for around $180.00 so I know it has to be on sale SOMEWHERE cheaper than 220.00

    It seems that Eugene has a bunch of stereo stores, anyone down there wanna do a little recon for me?

    Have you tried the online yellow pages? You should be able to pull up quite a few stores and call around /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I tried the online yeller pages but in portland Car Toys has put everyone out of business. there are a couple little shops but they either dont speak much english (Audio Fx) or just dont carry what I am looking for (Stereo King has the 383U but not the 583U or 683U)

    I meant to look up shops in Eugene and call them /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif You could call them yourself and find out if they can get you a better price... But dont forget if you save $20 on the sterio then put $40 into the tank to get there and back you would be defeating the purpose /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif
