    Default stereo!!!!!

    hi again everyone, i`m probably going to ask a question that has been asked so many times but im asking anyway. at the moment i have the cd30 in my car but since the we are in the world of mp3 i want to upgrade. i wanted to know what leads do i need so i can still use steering controls and the display with an aftermarket unit. from what i have read u can only get the lead for power and speakers etc not steering. ideally id like a headhunit with mp3 bluetooth, not really much need for sat nave though but wouldnt complain. i love gadgets so any ideas !!

    cheers

    Looks like Pioneer for you then, Scott. They're the only manufacturer that make an MP3/Bluetooth head unit and compatible steering wheel controls for a CD30 equipped Vectra. Gonna cost you about £400 for all the kit, though!

    Do a search on here for Pioneer for more info.

    Don't forget to buy the fascia adaptor, too. Vaux part number is 9163251.

    you can get an Ipod and buy a FM modulator thingy thats transmits the ipod onto your radio (its short range - about 10metres) and cost about £30 off ebay.

    a couple of my friends have gone this route and found it very handy cos it works for every FM radio - including those in your house.

    cheers david that was the one i think i would be a bit worried about the security issue ie people breaking in! i actually like the look of the cd30 its just a shame there is no inputs for it. i dont know if u can upgrade i know they do a cd30 mp3 but seems a lot to pay extra just to play mp3`s

    right i have finally come to a conclusion.... i think! you will find out in time im very indecisive!!! i think im just going to go with the cd30 mp3 version, as this will still look standard so keeps the thiefs away and will still be able to use steering wheel etc but im still open to opinions!.. so now i need to know where to get them and how much they are and how do i get the code into the ecu etc
