    Default Double DIN stereo that doesn't stick out like a sore thumb...

    Been wanting to replace my standard headunit (CCR2006) with something a bit better (iPod connectivity would be nice, but not after anything really fancy).

    I know pretty much anything I get is going to sound better than the OEM unit, but I want one which isn't going to stand out too much. Sadly I can't afford one of those ones which is custom designed to fit the VX dashboard so just need something which vaguely matches and isn't too "flashy".

    Anyone got a recommendation? If anyone would like to post pics of their installs it would be great!

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    This is my Alpine IVA-W505R at different angles, both on and off and in different colour schemes as my dash progressed, although doesn't fit into the "cheap" category I'm afraid.

    Cheers for the pics lads...

    Liking those units, they don't stand out too much like some of the cheap "flashy" units with their chromed knobs and trim...

    Roughly, what sort of money would I need to be paying out for a unit like one of those?

    OOOOOOH.... That's a bit out of my price range right now! What with the new bearing, new control arms, new handbrake cable and new tyres (still to be bought... )
