Hi! i'm looking to swap my radio to one which has aux.
Here is my current one: It's from 2002 facelift Sedan.
908556


908557



And here is the one i'm trying to replace it with. (2003 Facelift Sedan)
908558


908559



Is this a direct swap with exception of antenna plug, or do i need to swap something else aswell?

From an old thread:

1. Turn Radio Off.
2. Turn Radio On.
3. Press and hold the "m" button for about 10 seconds.
4. Press < or > to navigate, you will need to go to the 2nd screen to look for the SW Verison which is in a SV xx-xx xx format.
5. To be Sirius/AUX or XM compatible, the radio must be SW 43 or higher.
6. Turn radio off to exit.

Check to see if the original head unit is compatible.

From my understanding, you can fit any newer production radio for your old one. So long is the production date is 2003 and newer, it should support an aux input.
