    Default Audio upgrade

    Hi all,

    I have had a quick look through the threads, but can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

    I have an aftermarket DVD player. I want to go back to a VX based head unit. (my dvd player is getting some un-wanted attention in the evenings) by the local scum bags. It's only a matter of time before my windows gets put through, or my lock is broken.

    What are my options?

    Can I buy any VX double din head unit? If I do, will it work with a tech 2 session, or am I stuck to the pre-facelift models eg. CCR 2005, 2006. I think I have half canbus (Signum 04 with ISO connectors).

    Any help/advice would be grateful

    Cheers
    M

    Pretty sure your stuck with CDR2005/CCR2006. I believe its a dash rewire in order to get a CD30 etc installed.
    Have you thought about a steath install, put a OEM headunit back in (Not wired up) and install a aftermarket unit in the glovebox. There is an issue of seeing the display but i'm sure it could be overcome.

    GREAT!!

    Thanks Dennis.
    Can't really see the stealth option working without two rear headrest TFT's. (Don't want to cut them really) I have enough trouble with kids arguing who's in the front now.

    What wiring would be involved? Any ideas.
    Does my radio loom connect back to the full loom somewhere behind the dash, if so, can I not change that and go for another model?

    I have to be honest, not at all impressed with the CCR 2006 that came out originally.
