    you can never gaurentee not leaving a mark ...

    many methods ...warm/hotish water and use a credit card ../fishing line.

    many have found that they have had a respray and the badges left on ..so you can imagine the mess .left after debadging .
    and a good polish will get ride of some or all of the ghosting

    I've used hairdryer, warm water and dental floss before.

    Then polished the boot after to remove the few marks that i got!

    Easy. It pretty much just a case of popping the wiring loom into the hu. Good deals on ebay ones, depends which one you want.

    A rubber sanding block helps de-badge too and get rid of any residue. obviously without any sand paper on

    Apart from taking a live feed from the cig lighter, the rest of the parrot install is plug and play, and working out how to route your cables.

    It really is very easy. I am pretty crap when it comes to electronics etc, but even i managed to do it!

    If you remove the glove box (remove dash strip) then 6x Torx bolts, you can get the Ipod/USB cable to route into it to give a concealed location for your ipod/iphone.

    The blue control unit will sit nicely using velco in the space behind the heater controls.

    Deffo give it ago... or at very least get it installed and the wires routed and get someone else just to connect it to the live if you have concerns.
