    I'm not 100% but it does look right - and a good price. Why don't you contact him and ask. Not sure whether you need an adapter but I think you do - certainly do for the later ones. Or perhaps I should you don't need one but it makes it very straightforward. The biggest problem I found was getting all of the wiring back into the radio space.

    With my Parrot and 2005 half Can HU you need a lead as the HU plug plugs directly into the car loom. To get around it I just cut the Car block, it is in 3 parts 2 standard ISO for power and sound then the 3rd part of the block which is for the screen and steering wheel controls. So now the screen block is still in the cage for the HU to plug into and the ISO block is tucked behind the glove box, this fixes into the supplied parrot loom then the parrot look fixes into the HU.

    Its the way the electronics work. Instead of one main ECU the car has 11 Modules that all talk to each other. You'd get a better explanation of Can bus from good old Wikipedia

    Older C's are Half Can, you can tell by your steering wheel. If you have six buttons then you have half canbus, if you have rollers then you have full. HTH

    that you have 6 buttons on steering wheel (well means something else, but easiest way to discover)
