    I've not heard a CD40, but the first upgrade I did was replace my headunit with a midrange ish Sony unit. Remember that your sound is only as good as the part with the lowest quality. £300 speakers will still sound gash on a £50 headunit.

    Sorry - I am going mad.

    Where did he mention CD40 in his post ?

    Anyway CD40 ( or also known as CDC40 opera ) is the 6 player CD system with optional DAB.

    I fitted this as upgrade to an ex-company car I bought and it was great. At least this way all vauxhall controls ( inc head unit ) still work. Sound is quite good too, quite bassy.

    Pah, I was confusing this and another thread! Being a 2002 would be a CDR2005 wouldn't it? Which was what I had. The extra equaliser features make tweaking so much easier

    Initially I did and it was good but I then fitted Kenwood speakers as 2 of my originals were falling to bits. Chances are at least one of yours will be the same
