The bottom line is - auto manufacturers don’t offer CD players in most new automobiles BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE WOULDN'T OPT FOR THEM. Many SHF members fail to realize they are not like most people. Not saying we (SHF members) are better or worse than most people, we’re just different. Ever notice how many department stores (Best Buy, Target, etc) have done away with their CD departments, or minimized their CD inventory? That’s the reason CD players don’t come in most new automobiles, and that won’t change.
