    You need to check if your car is full or half canbus (scroll wheels full or buttons half) as the displays are different. Also if its full canbus ensure the display is put into delivery mode (divorced) with Tech 2 before you buy it or it is an expensive task to get it sorted.

    Paul -> even a secondhand screen thats not divorced, and that have to be done, is still way cheaper than buying a new screen from the dealers.. (there are atleast one compagny that i know of that can depair it, and actually also code it away from the car, so when it comes back its ready to put in..)

    Ken no problems I know it can be done but its added expense just saying track one down thats been divorced already to save the hastle, not necessarily a new one

    would you still need to tech 2 if you have removed the original stereo for an aftermarket unit?

    no as the screen is paired to the HU and not the car
