I like the idea of maintaining the factory radio but I want to add Bluetooth. is there a way to put a 3.5 auxiliary line in or do I have to trash the factory radio and get something else?

Its been years so I couldnt tell you exactly what we used for my car when my dad and I installed mine, but we bought a processor to add an aux. the stereo looks stock in the cabin but I have a processor and amp in the trunk. The processor allows you to add inputs like an aux. the only downside is, aux volume needs to be controlled by the processor, so I have a separate volume knob installed where the ash tray would be for Aux volume. Stereo works normally if Im using CD/AM/FM

My car has silver wheels as well which I'm thinking of Plasti dipping in Chrome.I found the set of beautiful stock chrome rims but they're too far from me.

I'm sure you can, there is a company selling modified factory radios for either 3.5 aux *or* bluetooth, and modified for 3.5 aux *and* bluetooth. .

If you get the one with just 3.5 Aux you can plug a bluetooth adapter into it and it will link your phone correctly for calls as well as music provided *the adapter* supports that.

See the link:

https://www.1factoryradio.com/aux-input/#/?_=1&filter.categories_hierarchy=AUX%20INPUT%2FBUICK&page=1&filter.brand=Buick

Look at the 2000-2001 LeSabre radios. Contact the seller to learn more.

Probably because Google thinks it can sell you something else. Remember - their results are driven in part by advertising $.

Crutchfield has been around so long I doubt they need Google all that much beyond organic search results. I have never been disappointed with a radio for a car I got through Crutchfield. They fit; they provide the jumpers and brackets so the install is truly reversible, and the face panels so that it really looks right in the dash. They are *not* the cheapest but if you factor in the fitting and electrical bits, they usually *are*.
