    Talking Signum phone, screen questions... =D

    Hi all...

    This is my first post. I am looking to buy a signum next week. It is a 1.9 150 Design, with 19" wheels, bluetooth phone (factory one) and the rest of the usual signum stuff you would expect on a 55 model.
    The question I have is, that havind the factory installed phone kit, there is an adaptor shoe (for various phone cradels) in place of where the cubby hole/drinks holder is normally (adjacent to the hand brake).

    Does anyone know if it is possible to have the shoe taken out and the cubby hole replaced as in a standard car, but still keeping the bluetooth working in the car stereo?

    Also, does anyone out there know of anyone that is able to add a link in to the colour display for say a DVD player etc???

    Next week feels ages away!!!

    The bluetooth unit itself lives behind the glovebox, so removing the cradle won't upset it. As for the screen it is possible, see here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcxfIC81zaI

    The guy who'se done it seems to be selling interface leads so should be failry easy to set up.

    The drinks holder just clips in, slight upwards tug and it's free. i imagine the shoe is just the same, but obviously with a lead or two attached.

    Hi Pete - Can I ask where you found the cup holder bit on EBAY - Have been looking this afternoon, and I cant see one. Did you need to know the VX part number?
