    Why not get a Dennison Unit? These plug into your existing system and give you all the connectivity you could ever need.

    just had a parrot mk-9200 fitted from halfords on a discount day - costs £130, plus £30 fitting, plus £22 for ISO cable total £180. It gives you hansfree telephone calls and great music connectivity - slot on the side of the parrot for SD card, USB, iphone and aux cable - can charge and play music through these. You get a wireless remote with various adaptors and fitting options.

    Any of the MK series would give you music via bluetooth and maybe the MK9000/9100 will do the same, just the price difference isn't that great, you'll probably just save £30.

    Online halfords quoted £30 fitting and £70 for hard wired. II used Halfords in Bracknell and spoke to the fitter over the phone and when they plugged the model into their computer it tells you which lead you need and agreed the £30 fitting service. I just wanted them to take care of the wiring part. I then moved the display so it's stuck flat against the two blanking plates next to the number panel on the CD 70 and the backlight is orange to match the rest of the car. I have gutted the ashtray so the leads feed into the ashtray so they are hidden from view when not in use and I just flip open the ashtray for the cables. Nice neat fit, realy chuffed.
