    Default Updating my CD player!!!!

    I have a 2004 Vectra (pre facelift) and wish to update my CDR 2005 to an all new singing and dancing double din stereo. I've read various threads on the troubles people have been experiencing in fitting these.

    My question is this, is it worth the hassle, is the sound quality of an aftermarket headunit that so to make it worth while!!

    I believe there are various size double din units, can someone give any advice on makes / models that will give as little stress on fitting the unit as possible. I have a budget of upto £500.

    I am new to this game but i love my music and therefore willing to upgrade if needs be!!!!

    Any help much appriciated

    Up to 500? Are you wanting a DVD player too?

    I have this fitted to mine, sound quality vastly improved, even on standard speakers http://www.justkenwood.co.uk/car-aud...503u-car-radio

    Did you experience any problems installing it, i'm considering getting one from halfords so they can fit it! not sure if it will incur any additional cost?

    Do you need any additional bits and bobs to allow for the steering controls to still function?

    I fitted the connects2 facia adaptor (about 40 quid) and yeah if you want the steering controls to work its about another 25-30 quid for the correct adaptor.

    I've had no problems at all with mine
