You can have one fitted as an accessory, but the principle is that people use digital music either from a memory stick or their phone/ MP3 player.

The brochure and price list is quite clear there's no CD player (except for the Access models)

If DAB doesn't work in Norfolk use the FM or Am radio.

Use the USB...convert from FLAC to mp3 with very high quality, will be close enough to CD quality...as Peugeot audio line is "medium-low" quality, will not hear any difference...
And by the way...the CD inside glove box is the most dumb idea...I had it...you loose all space inside...

Ive had the car now 7 days it was delivered to our driveway and is still there unused my wife says she prefers to drive her old escort so can listen to music, I cant see the point of sticking things into the usb hole , spoils the look of the car and don't want wires sticking out, to be honest I wish I never bought it now, How can I get my cd;s onto a usb stick ? I can work out how I get the radio to work on MW so I can get talk sport. When it ice appears on the road and I have to stop my daily commute on my motorbike I suppose I will have to use the 2008, but not looking forward to it, I only bought it beacause it was so cheap when I part exchanged a 20 year old escort, I wish I kept it now, this 2008 is just too complicated,

Dude... you hate the car because you cant listen to a CD. Are you kidding?!

My USB is about the size of a 10p piece woth no wires and holds about 100 CDs worth of music. All easily accessible and with album cover art. I think that is much better than having 10 CDs all dotted about the car getting scratched and broken.

And if you cant get the radio to work on FM then there is no hope.

Tell me this is a wind up!!!I'm not very technically mindedbut my son showed me how to load my cd's onto memory sticks and the sound quality is great together with an on screen display read out of the tracks.
If you didn't enjoy the car itself then there is something wrong and if your not looking forward to driving it perhaps it's best you get rid, as for myself after nearly two years I still love driving mine.

Hi Rachael,

The easiest way, and being a Luddite, I only do easy. Is if you load your CD's onto your computer and save them as MP3 Format, and Windows Media gives you that option when it tells you to "Rip CD", you can store as may CD's as you like.

What you need to do then is buy a USB Stick from Tesco's for £3 and you can copy all your CD's onto the USB, well I say all but at least 30 albums.

Then you can put the USB into the slot in front of the gear lever press the "Source Button" next to the screen and keep pressing until it gets to USB and bingo it will start playing your CD's. Once you've done it it is not worth having CD's again in the car believe me. Good sounds in a car makes it so much more enjoyable to drive. You just need to master loading the CD's onto a Stick.

If you're still not convinced and still feel its better to get rid of the car because you can't play CD's, then I'll send the boys round to break up the Escort, set fire to the car and replace it with a horse and cart. This 21st Century stuff is wasted on you kid.

Much better to have a pile of cd cases littered around the car than a small USB stick. NFN...

thanks for the informative info in how to get music onto a usb stick, pity there is nothing in the manual to tell you. im not a luddite, I ride superbikes for a living but only have a car to use in the winter, I bought this caron a whim andrush, luckily im not poor so I might just get rid of it and buy what my wife thinks I should get a new range rover.
Ill try the music tomorrow and might go for a drive,

I did try putting cd music onto a usb stick, with no success as on windows 8.1 there is no option on media player to save to a usb. Anyway, this morning I telephoned the dealer who has agreed to collect the Allure and exchange it for 15 plate pre registered Range Rover, so solution done, may cost me probably about £1000 wasted money, but now have a car that I am completely satisfied, as had 3 Land rovers over the years. Good luck everyone. bye

This has got to be a wind up.
<div style="line-height: 16.8px;">

<div style="line-height: 16.8px;">'Dont see the point of sticking things in the usb hole, spoils the look of the car'........spoils the look of the car because you have something plugged into a port that you can barely see when you are in the car?!

'No CD player so how to I listen to music or the radio'......er....turn on the radio?

DAB works in Norfolk, I use it here. Seriously this has got to be a joke. I haven't even touched a CD in about 10 years let alone worried about how to play them in my car!

The last thing that I really don't understand about thid post is that your 2 options of car are a range rover or a 2008, they are absolutely nothing like each other in any way other than they both have 4 wheels. The 2008 is a small estate car that looks a bit like a miniature SUV, and a range rover is a living room on wheels.

I have great sympathy this guy, my brother lives in a rural par of north norfolk and they have no mobile signal on their small holding and no broadnand, When I visit them the sat nav does not work as I approach within 3 miles of their place, some people do not realise and most importantly the people who run the country realise there are loads of places in the uk who cant access the modern living of internet etc, their children do not have much contact with the outside world apart as they are all bused into the local high schools. In contrast everywhere here in Bukgaria is 3G, there is 100% 2g, 95 $ 3G and 30$ 4G.

Also thei headroom in a2008 is better than a range rover, as my 6 foot 4 son can testify, when he was a passenger in his mates freelander.

Im slowly realising the 2008 is the best ever car to drive long distances, drove to Vienna today non stop 1000 miles in 16 hours with just 2 1 hour stops. Cant see a range rover doing 65mg !!!
