Was going to insert a USB into the back of the headunit' but realised the have been discontinued for about 3 years so I believe. So there is a double din and a new fascia going in man

If I'd thought of the idea and if I could choose again id go with the built in satnav HU' stupidly I didn't and cause nothing but problems and spending money converting over to the double din.

Bought the xtrons fully compatable! Build in Satnav, Bluetooth, and DVD/CD player, well worth the buy.

Yes I've had the xtrons screen before in my old car but then sold it due to getting the fn2, wish I didn't though apart from that the sound quality is actually changes a big difference! Huge upgrade from the standard unit I must say.

I agree, the difference from OEM to new head unit is immense! I'm still thinking about upgrading the speakers, but not sure if I really need to. The OEM speakers are good, just the OEM head unit thats the weak link in the chain.

Yeah, you're right the OEM Speakers aren't right for the Standard Head Unit, as little as changing the HU makes a remarkable difference, although I'd highly recommend the Xtrons CD/DVD player to anyone, reliable and no lag features.

Thanks aqib.
