    Vehicle : Vectra 1.8 SRi

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : Z18XE

    Year : 2004

    Default Bluetooth, DAB and USB?

    So gents as the title says this is what I want from a headunit, preferably for up to £150. Not fussed if it has a cd mech or not would prefer single din as I already have the fascia. So any recommendations?

    There aren't many DAB/BT combined units on the market. You probably won't find any decent ones around the £150 mark (the Alpine CDE-136BT is probably the best of the bunch but is outside your budget).

    At a push, I'm sure Caliber do a unit that is BT/DAB/USB or SD, but don't expect the world from it!

    Hmmm, what about this? http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...Id_165474#tab1
    I know they can be had for the £150 mark, but I think I'd need to buy a dab aerial to go with it but I can stretch my budget if needs be.

    or maybe one of these? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JVC-KD-R90...item3f236ed44c

    The R901 needs a DAB adaptor box to provide it with full DAB functionality (that's why it's DAB-Ready), but the Pioneer one looks to be a decent little unit.

    You will need to buy an aerial, and if you have a look at http://www.dabonwheels.co.uk/Group_1...r_aerials.html you should find one that suits your budget

    Cheers Trouty Brown, that's one I linked to earlier. I think I'm going to look into getting one of these with a DAB Aerial and I think that will do exactly what I want. I did like the double din app radio that they do but there doesn't seem to be that many apps out there for it that would be of much use and the extra cost fo the double din fitting kit would push the price up, and it doesn't have DAB radio.If and when I get something I'll stick some pics up and a review of what I think to it.

    Don't get a stick on the inside of the windscreen type aerial, rubbish, get an external glass mount, much better.
