    Hey Guys,

    I'm looking at replacing my cdr2005 unit with an aftermarket one , where can i get a blanking plate from and will i lose my steering wheel controls ?? (not bothered about the later tbh i never use em) anything else i need to be aware of?

    thanks in advance

    p.s i have £200 to spend so any recommendations will be appreciated

    i was thinkig of this , will it be compatible? (i dont have the first idea about ICE) Kenwood KDCW7031 MP3 Tuner Motorised Front

    First of all you will need one of these, to remove the OEM headunit

    You can also buy the facia from the same guy thorugh ebay, but i see that dave also has one for sale too.

    You will loose steering wheel controls but i know that autoleads do an adapter if your interested in keeping them.

    Hi Steve,
    Dont know why they dont fit. i brought a set and worked a treat for me. Sounds like a silly question, but you did remove the 4 lugs in the stereo before trying to insert the keys.
