    Default Replacing Headunit for a Double Din HU...

    I've got a pre-facelift, with a CDR2005 (I think).

    I'm considering my options with regard to the headunit. I've always been a fan of aftermarket headunits and I'm quite keen to have my old sub & amp installed, but my old HU is a single din unit. Which isn't a bad unit, but I'd quite like to venture into the double-din sized units and I have my eyes on a JVC unit with a large-ish screen - it will play mp3 and will do DVD, so I can get an enormous amount of music on one disc.

    Ideally, I'd like to keep the steering wheel controls - I assume I'll have to get a matching module?

    Also, what kit will I need to fit the HU? Are the fascia and double din kits that are knocking about ebay (for £40ish) worth it? Also, will the old HU need de-programming out of the car? I'm not intending to sell it as it'll go back in the car when it's time for the Vectra to go.
