Just curious, what is the logic behind installing Autocop after one year?

I am in US , here car insurance premium lowers if one installs security gadgets(like Alarms), don't know about insurance business in India , never shopped for it.

My logic is not bullet-proof. Its just a question of priorities.

I am not usually required to take the car out much, so its not risk prone. And at home it is very safe since we have a good security system.

Besides, I'l get the no-claim bonus in about a month's time (not after an year).

I am getting your point. Is that you are transferring insurance coverage from your old car (Zen) to this new car?

Thanks Nitin. Any idea about the JVC players?

Also planning to put in an auto cop ...
Even I got a Factory fitted Audio System(Nippon) with all the six Speakers in my petra EL, and its really a good System with great sound, still people who wants to upgrade to MP3 or CD player have a choice to buy a Adapter and a external MP3 player or CD Player, This Adapter contains a Cassete which is inserted into your Audio unit and you can listen your MP3 songs running in your external MP3 player in your CAR speakers.
The cost of this adapter is just Rs350 to Rs 500.

Hmmm ... that is what I thought off. But I was thinking if it will be an external system (as in a separate CD player) there might be the problem of CD skipping. That is why I am mulling over the CD changer. Have you gone in for the adapter? If so are you facing problems?

And yeah I agree with you on the sound quality of the factory fitted system.

Yes I am already using this Adapter which I got it from US for $7 from a $.99 shop. Only thing is that your portable CD player should be shock resistant for 5 Seconds. moreover If the car is as smooth as Petra, you won't get much bumps inside

I never faced this problem of skipping tracks, May be because My MP3 is good enough to handle shocks. I suggust you only to buy the Adapter from Net and buy the CD player or MP3 player from a Authurized Dealer.
In this way you can always take your CD player with you and use it as Disc Man when travelling in Train or Plane. Right?.

Yeah, the Petra is smooth. Our roads are not.

But will give your idea a shot. Require the adapter right now. Have the CD player.

Hey Camry, There is no truth in the statement that you have to use the FIAT OE speakers in teh front. I have put in 5.25" alpine speakers at the front. the only windows that go up and down (ie the ones in front) work just fine.

check out JBL GT Series speakers. they are excellent value for money. also the boot of the petra/ sienna acts as a sort of resonator or something and the bass from the rear is HEAVY without using a subwoofer.
