Default CD Player...?

Hi there. I bought a used '92 Bonneville SSEi Supercharged several weeks ago. Everything about the car was perfect, except for the fact that the CD Player no longer worked. My question is about getting a new one. I noticed, looking through electronics stores, that the new-style players are much smaller than the one found in my car. Is there some sort of kit that would allow me to install a new-style player? If so, how much would the adaption kit alone be? Also, if I were to get a new player, is there any way to allow the steering-wheel buttons to function with it, or will they only work on a stcok player? Please excuse the lack of knowledge in this area. I am no good with car audio or video, just computers. Thanks for any help you can provide.

yes, you can use a newer one, kits range from 10-20 bucks depending where you buy it.

If the new unit has a wireless remote you can make the steering wheel controls work again.

Pioneer has one that is fitted to the dash. I have it in my car. Pioneer DEH-P47DH CD. Puts out a nice sound and the cost is not bad. Check it out as an option.

If you put an aftermaket stereo in, your climate control display will lose its dimming capability and will be at max brightness all the time.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions and tips. I just decided to go with a conversion kit, and an after-market player with a remote, so I can make the steering-wheel controls work with it. The good thing, is it will all be professionally installed free of charge by 'Ultimate Electronics'. Thanks again everyone.
