    Default Best head-unit illumination colour match to std Dash...

    I appologise for the slightly criptic thread title, but I am looking into getting a new head unit for my SRi (I want mp3, and being half-canbus need to move away from VX headunits) but I want to make sure that the new head unit matches both a) the colour of the dash (as best it can) and b) the illumination of the head unit match the dashboard and multi function display.

    Does anyone have a non standard unit and finds it matches, pics would also be a brucey bonus

    Cheers all.

    You could always do it the other way round - buy the HU you like & then have the dash illumination converted. I'm having mine converted to blue on Saturday. There's a thread going at the moment

    My Kenwood double DIN (DPX-503U) can do any colour at all, but I found one of the presets matches perfectly.



    Sounds awesome too. I also have the Kenwood Bluetooth unit fitted to it, and the iPod box is on the "happy christmas to me!" list.

    _ZS_ thats a nice looking head unit, and a nice way to keep it looking as OEM as possible - I will be looking into one of those - cheers for that.

    Joking, nice, but am not wanting to spend a great deal, upto £200 max, and that Kenwood double DIN fits the bill perfectly.
