FM and Bluetooth Conversions
by Aurora Automotive

The FMR 2.5 completely replaces all of the factory AM or AM/FM tube or solid state electronics in the radio, and interfaces directly with your original tuner and volume/tone controls. Standard features include stereo AUX inputs and 4x45W at 4 ohm power output.

Optional features include: SUB out, LINE out, and Bluetooth interface and a USB port and are available at respective price tiers. Conversions using the BT (Bluetooth Only) or BTU (Bluetooth with USB) Options allow your wireless music device (iPhone/iPod, Mobile Phone or MP3 Player) to be controlled through the radio’s own knobs. This means you can scan through your music library as if you are tuning the radio. Hands free calling via discreet built-in mic (or external clip on mic if your radio does not have a suitable location for a built-in) standard on all bluetooth conversions.

Basic AM/FM/Aux conversions start at just $385. Additional options such as Bluetooth and USB functionality are available at additional cost. Prices include return shipping to the continental U.S. We take a $100 deposit to get started on any Basic conversion, and a $250 deposit to get started on either Bluetooth-tier conversion. Sorry, we do not ship internationally. Radios which are excessively dirty will incur an additional cleaning charge. Otherwise, all prices include basic touch up of dial face, lens, fresh paint on the dial pointer, and a new dial lamp.

Turnaround: 14-18 days on most radios. Heavily optioned radios may require additional time.
