    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    My Alpine double din unit's cage was too big for the hole in the Vectra dash (it's not quite a full size double din hole) and I had to use the complete fitting kit. The Alpine unit slotted into the fitting kit perfectly, all I had to do was fit the locking mechanism to the unit.
