    I have used them in the past and have been very well priced, quick delivery and problem free.

    I think the wiring might be different, how many buttons you got on your steering wheel? 3 either side or 2 and 2 rollers?

    The CD30 is actually a not bad stereo and looks better sat in the dash than a wrong colour aftermarket with the poor fitting fascia, but thats just my opinion.

    Yeah it has three buttons either side. The only reason i want to change the head unit is because my kenwood has full ipod support and i dont use cd's anymore.

    Thumbs up

    There are some pretty cool looking aftermarket ones check out these

    Ebay Item 260745675165 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tchlink:top:en

    and another unit, this one made by [Search VXMMI]. Ebay seller ID ttints based in Luton.
    Website www.ttints.co.uk
    and lastly this one at £270 but be careful if coming from abroad as they would charge duty!

    Good luck!
