Do you, or anyone else for that matter, know if the head unit is the same as a 98?

95 Roadmaster has the double DIN unit too, although I can't confirm it supports the steering wheel controls.

These series are common as dirt though.  If you go to any pick/pull yard, you can just walk the GM Buick rows and find a handful in minutes.  Most yards sell them for $20-30, and are usually guaranteed for 30 days.  And they are all over eBay.

The 1.5 DIN units from previous years are getting a little harder to find, but still around, although the 1995 Riviera 1.5 DIN AM/FM/Cass & AM/FM/CD (yes they made one) are specific models not shared with any other car.... of course rolleyes  (Curse of the 1995s  *laugh* )
