    Default Help with some mods 52plate SXi

    Hi chaps. Just bought an sxi 2.2. my02. Thought it was time i moved on from my old vecy b and learned a whole new set of faults/tricks/fixes as i was getting bored changing f18 boxs on old ones!

    Not sure how far i will go with the mods, depends on cash, women or job (not nescesarily in that order!) but one thing i want to do is upgrade my screen as all it does at the moment is tell me the time and what radio station im on which is crap on a supposedly 'sporty' model.

    From reading other threads I have gleaned that my car is a semi can bus as its a pre 2004 car, however im not exactley clear on what screen/head unit to try and get hold of. Can i not use one from a 2004 on car? Do i need a different stalk? If some one could talk me through concisely what i should do it would be most appreciated.

    P.S. My day job is in a engine refurb company so if anyone needs any help/advice on engine probs or how2's feel free to get in contact.
    Cheers
    Chris

    hi m8
    with yours being a half canbus you can have a full canbus radio but it not for the faint hearted and severals member have done it but with a lot of time and hassel.
    you would be better of going for an after market unit or the ncdc sat nav range for half canbus veccy.
    it all depends on what your after m8

    Thanks for the input chaps, the screen if defo number one on my list. I'm gonna go big on a stereo one day (when i can afford it) but for now ill settle for a screen update.
