    Two options i think

    Option 1 spend £000's having it retro fitted

    Option 2 buy a car with it fitted

    Unfortunately its something that has been talked about on here a fair bit and the genaral concensus is it aint worth doing ........Sorry !!!!

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!

    I have seen a CDC40 with CID for sale. It is off an 06 vectra. Would this fit?

    Please Dont Buy The One On Ebay Its Not A Sat Nav Unit !!!!!!!

    The CDC40 is not a sat nav unit the seller has worded it very skillfully also it has not been disabled from the car so its useless anyway !!!!!!!

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!
