    Default Probably a stoopid question but.........

    Hello chaps,

    The ****e standard CD tuner in my '04 SRi is making some V nasty mechanical noises whenever I attempt to load or eject a CD. The car is going back to the dealers next week for them to have a look/listen (i'm not holding my breath for a result.... ). If I use this as an opportunity to upgrade to an aftermarket HU, what is involved in linking one to the steering wheel controls, and will I loose all of the features of the central LCD display (mpg, ave speed etc......?)
    Also any recommendations as to manufactuer and model in light of the above.....?

    Many thanks in advance,

    IanM

    There are adapters available that allow you to keep the dash display and steering wheel controls matey. I'm sure someone will be along shortly with more detailed info for you.

    I changed the cdr2005 in my 53 plate SXI to a Sony unit, with a connects2 adapter for steering wheel controls & display. The display in mine is only the simple one with the two buttons. The steering wheel controls are the button type, not the scroll wheels. The adapter shows ID3 info relating to the MP3 discs. I don't know how the other type of displays look, or how you can set clock, etc on them.
