    Not sure about this unit quality but I can confirm it will not be flush fitting. The unit's controls (at the bottom) are raised out which will not give you the OEM flush fit look... That said I have a new JVC double din which sticks out at the bottom yet you hardly noitice it...

    If you want flush fit the only unit to offer it is the very over prices, limited functuion VCMMI (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...item3369e18dd1). Itis flat edged at the base which and fits prefictly into the whole left by the CD70. It will need adapter leads to get it working as it's made for ISO cars (half can bus cars. your is full can bus).

    Pic of mine installed... I chose this as its a full screen and can be tilted up to see clearer which is very helpfull as the driving position to the screen position in the vectra is IMO not great in standard. Oh, it's not tilted up in this picture...

    emmmm.... ok... lets see..

    your full can bus so will need can bus to ISO adapters, an arieal adapter and a double din fitting kit... Will cost you arround £70'ish to £100 for that lot and then it's plug and play.

    When I have bought this kit i bought it from Dynamic Sounds direct. was cheaper than ebay with free postage and the guys we dead helpfull in telling me what I wanted.

    Web site is... http://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/

    and bits I think you need are...

    http://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/autol...or-p-9277.html

    http://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/conne...te-p-8624.html

    http://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/autol...or-p-9257.html

    But double check all this with them or on the site!

    Avoid at all costs. There's a reason these are cheap. Stick with the big name manufacturers.
