    Few questions to help you out matey:

    1 - What's your budget?

    2 - What features do you need?

    3 - What features do you want?

    4 - You mentioned MP3 player connectivity? Do you own an iPod or something else? (iPods oftenly have directly control, most others do not.)

    5 - Are you intending to ever install a subwoofer, uprated speakers or amps?

    6- Single DIN or double DIN?

    This should give a basic idea what sort of thing we're looking at for you

    Is this called hijacking? here goes ;-)

    mickydoos, I have the same dilema, maybe you could help

    1 - cheaper the better, up to £200 would be good!
    2 - bluetooth, voice recognition, MP3s, USB, connect to my ipod and galaxy SII (the sandwich!) I know a bit about technology but lost touch on the ice many years ago!
    3 to old for subwoofer tho i'm hoping it wouldn't take much to improve the sound from the CD30, i reckon my vectra B had better sound as standerd!

    Summary i guess is initially to replace with better sounding stereo that has a tidy install and the steering wheel buttons work ;-)
    Then further hopfully affordable/feesable option of adding in the connectivty options for ipod/USB MP3
    And further again with Bluetooth giving me speech recognised hands free system

    Hope that makes sense
    Ive been looking about for a few days but my head bust with it!

    Thanks
