CDA-D857 - does anyone have this unit? Alpine says it fits perfectly with GM & Chrysler cars. They even said it will work with the factory steering wheel controls. Does anyone know if this will work with the factory 4disc in-dash cd changer? If it does, then this is the headunit that I need. :)

I have the CDA-D853, which I believe they look the same but mine does not have steering controls. Question - I thought the H/U in the 2nd gen was only DIN height and the face is curved? Will this unit still work?

Mathwiz is correct. The radio size in the 2nd Gen Intrepid is 1.5 DIN height, but is curved. The curves on the corners will not allow you to install a 1.5 DIN aftermarket radio in there. Sorry, but you're stuck with using a single DIN aftermarket and a dash kit.

And no, there are no adapters or aftermarket units available to control the factory in dash changer.
