I have a 1.6D EX 2013MY (9G) and it has front & rear parking sensors and the reverse camera. I thought ex was same across all models but I am sure someone with more experience than me can answer properly.
Is it a 8G or 9G shape?

If it's a 2012my then it won't have DAB.

It will also have the locked down iMid, unless you are stationary with the handbrake on.

DAB was only introduced with the my2013, as was the iMid fix.

Get the salesman to show you DAB if it's a my2012. If he says it's a simple upgrade then if you call £600 including headlining out to fit a DAB compatible aerial.

I think the 2012 models have CU in the Vin No and 2013 models have DU, sounds like it's worth checking.

What is involved in upgrading. Is it just the antenna or are there some other control boxes and sections of loom which need to be replaced?

I have a doner 2014 car which I could take the parts from if I knew which parts need to be swapped across.
