    The vx one from the Stealer's if you can get it.

    But I'd say try and pay a bit more for one as it'll fit better.
    The £12 ones from Fleabay sometimes don't fit that well....It you can land lucky and pay cheap and it fits superb.

    Just yer Donald duck lol

    As long as you're careful when installing them, either the Autoleads or Connects2 single DIN fascias will fit fine.

    The usual reason they break is because people just throw them into the dash, causing the plastic hooks to snap and the fascia to wobble around (or drop out of the dash sometimes). If you warm the plastic a little, the clips won't snap as easily, also if you use a radio release key wrapped in electrician's tape, it can help guide the plastic clips when installing the fascia.

    There's a stickied post in the ICE mods forum that has part numbers.
    2006 1.9 CDTI 150 SRI. It goes OK I suppose, for a diesel!
