    Default Opinions and Advice please, if you have the time :)

    Well I will soon stop banging on about ICE etc.

    I have just ordered:

    Alpine 9850ri (I already have one in wife car and love it)
    CTDOPS005 Stalk and Screen Adapter (expensive but supposed to keep screen and controls etc)
    YCT24VX10 Facia (anthracite, not that anyone cares )

    And I am guessing I need the FAKRA adapter too??

    Have I forgotten anything or should I make sure that I do anything?

    double din removal keys for the existing unit?! tiny little allen keys to take out the four little screws on the OE headunit.

    some say you can use a wire hanger for the removal of the headunit but i've never had any luck doing it this way.

    I've just put the same HU in my car, and I just ordered the head unit and fascia only. Didn't need an aerial adaptor, and I had the double-din pins already.

    I'd be interested to hear how the steering wheel controls operate the Ipod if you get a moment?

    I have the same stereo, fascia, and have an autoleads adaptor for steering controls.

    Now the stereo, ipod etc etc all works very well and is fantastic.

    The steering wheel controls are a different matter. For love nor money can I get them to work. I need to phone autoleads.

    Will keep you updated tho.

    P.S now you know there is an adaptor, so I did help

    Got the same unit, got steering wheel controls working fine! Actually attempted to have a look to see how it was wired up, but couldn't get in.

    I'll have another go tomorrow.

    So you have the steering wheel controls operating the Ipod? How do you scroll through songs? Holding down one of the buttons? Or turning the steering wheel frantically?
