    If you want to stay with Vx units, then it's VERY expensive unless you can find a good one on ebay. Aftermarket HU's and multi CD changers are much, much cheaper.

    Different Vx units should be a straight swap but will need Tech2'ing out of the donor car and Tech2'ing back into yours.

    Cheers, tbh I was hoping to just upgrade to the next unit up, but with a multi disc instead?
    Why is it so dear and what happens if a donor unit isnt tech 2d out, will it become u/s?

    Not sure off the top of my head what the options are for a Vx unit with optional changer, but the basic CD30 costs about £300 new from a dealer, god only knows how much they'd charge for higher spec units!

    If the stereo isn't tech2'd out of the donor car, it effectively goes into a 'safe' mode, which makes it completely useless. That's why a lot of the units on ebay aren't worth anything, because they've just been ripped out and may as well be sold as doorstops

    No probs with my CD70 in my Elite. Nor with my previous CCR2006 fitted in my other Vectra. Sound quality and functions are just fine.
