CD Changer options

I am trying to find a CD changer to use with my business radio. I am confused about the correct part number / specifications that works with my setup.

All the postings on ebay talk about a 6pin and 3 pin setup. When I looked in the trunk all I saw was a 6 pin plug and an 8 pin plug for power I guess. Could someone please suggest the correct setup that I should be looking for?

I-Bus / Non I-Bus

Or am I better off just getting a new alpine changer, is it possible to hook up a new apline changer?

That means you need to get an OEM CD changer or an Alpine CD Changer ($199 msrp) with a Blitzsafe adapter ($80).
