    Default CD30 mp3 Question

    Hi guys, newbie here, sorry if its been asked before.
    I have bought a cd30 with mp3 to fit into my GSi 3.2 Vec C. The previous owner had a single din Kenwood mp3 head unit fitted but i prefer the look of the standard double din unit.
    I read in another post that a Vx head unit requires Tech2'ing out of the donor vehicle and into the new car, is this correct????
    If so i will contact the seller and ask for a refund.
    Why do car manufacturers do this other than to extract more money from us hard working peeps???
    Any feedback most welcome

    You're right.

    The Vx HU must be tech2'd out of the donor car, and tech2'd into yours.

    The problem is even bigger to fit a CD30 into a MY2002; and even if you change the cables and connectors, you'll probably need another display...

    I'm currently bidding for a cd30 mp3 on ebay. Am I wasting my time? If I take this cd30 mp3 to my dealer are you saying they wont be able to fit it (if it hasn't been tech2'd out of the other car)? How do I check if it's been tech2'd our of the donar car?

    You need to ask the person selling to be honest, and as said it also depends on what car it is going into, if it is pre 05 (I think, don't quote me) i.e. pre full CANBUS then you will have a lot of cables to change as well

    Cheers
