No, the connectors and some of the signaling changed.
(Physically they will fit, but will be the wrong color. Electrically, with a lot of splicing and some junkyard connectors, you can make most of them work, with the possible exceptions of the button back lighting, the display dimming at night, and the RAP- radio on till door opened, and the speed sensitive volume)

There is another option - Aftermarket touchscreens. They can look enough like stock to fool many.

I'm hoping this would just work like how I took out 2000 town car cassette player and put in a town car CD player

Please search the threads on this. It's completely impractical to add THX nav to a non-nav 2nd gen LS. It's even more unlikely on a first gen.
BTW, besides some large wiring harnesses (that you'll have to hack together to work on your 1st gen), you'll also need at least, the DVD "brain" unit in the trunk, the four channel amp in the trunk, a sub amp and subs (if you don't already have that), the GPS antenna, the rear view mirror (microphone for voice commands), and new steering wheel buttons. You'd also want the THX door speakers. I think I'm leaving a few things out, look for the threads. Way, way, way easier to go aftermarket.

I'm sorry. Do you somehow believe that I have been rude or hostile to you? I am simply presenting the facts. If you need someone to sugar coat them for you, or to never suggest that you help yourself by searching for the same things that I could search for you, then that someone is not me. Please put me on your ignore list.

Whoa kid, pump the brakes.

Furthermore, no one gives a flying fukc what your avatar is (and if you have to explain it to people, it probably wasn't that great in the first place...)

Second, just because you have the right to say just about anything you want to, that doesn't mean that you need to say anything and show off how big of a d!ck you can be. Remember, you also have the right to just remain silent.

Clearly. Of the A Holes they have kicked out and the A Holes they haven't kicked out yet, you would seem to fall into the latter.


Lastly, (this is more directed toward everybody else and not necessarily toward yourself) dont you love when somebody post that they did XYZ to car A and expect it should be the same for for car B?
