Wanted Sony in-car CDR front panel

Hello all,
I managed to drive over my detachable panel for SONY CDX-CA600 and
it's now in a rather sorry state. To get a new one, I rang a number of
Sony dealers. Half of them told me to go away. The rest said they can
get one for me, but at the price higher than a new complete radio
unit. One even quoted me twice the original price!
Does any one have an idea where I can get it, but not at a silly
price? If these things are so expensive, surely there must be people
who had their main units damaged or stolen and may want to sell just
the front panel.

sites?

I believe that you will find that the panel has a chip coded to match your
head unit.
If you purchase one from anywhere other than a dealer it will be most likely
stolen, and probably won't work properly if at all.
eBay would be the best place, or try a car breakers.
