    no mate i have an after market one in, i'm hoping to keep it in as well, have the dvd in the boot/or under the seat, and i'm going to have a tft screen upfront.

    Hoping to locate my head unit below the heater controls - i think i can fit it in there.

    Need to look tomorrow when i have time.
