    Default Fitting an after market H/U while retaining the trip computer?

    I was looking to change the head unit in my Vectra but I would still like to keep the trip computer.

    Can it be done?

    as long as your car is a face lift full canbus version or half canbus version without sat nav then yes you can.

    looking at your profile your car is an 07 so you will need a quadlock connects 2 canbus adapter.

    click the link to see what you need. you can get them for around £40 if you hunt around.

    So this will allow me to use the trip computer to show mpg, use the stop watch etc?

    as said if you buy the corrct interface then it will all still work through the steering wheel too, imo if you buy a sony HU get the sony interface.....pricey but well worth the extra cash...
