  1. Aftermarket Headunits?

    Hi dont know if there is a thread on here about this but i want to change my head unit. Has anybody fitted one and got any pictures of it. ideally looking for a double din touch screen but haven't looked in depth as such just had a quick look. i will most likly replace the speakers afterwards depending on the amp in the headunit. Thanks in advance Mitch
  2. Hello all, I've finally taken my triple stack radio out, using a converter kit. I had a JVC KW-R920BT, which sits flush against the rest of the dashboard. Annoyingly the radio kept making strange noises and so did the replacement. I went for a Pioneer FH-X730BT, which works perfectly, but doesn't sit flush and makes it look horrible... Does anyone know of a radio that will sit flush with the dash? It must have Bluetooth Cheers
  3. Hi all. Just wanted to document and put a few pictures of the audio upgrade that I am planning for my wife's 2006 Seat Leon 1.6 R (petrol) MK2 audio system. I recently upgraded my own head unit in my Focus to the AVH-X8700BT and the previous unit, Pioneer AVH-X2500BT was not going to be used. Rather than sell it on, I decided to install it in my wife's car as she didn't have bluetooth, aux in etc. She's not overly concerned with sound quality unlike myself and would need more the functionality of handsfree bluetooth calling and music streaming. I plan on doing the upgrades step wise like I did in my own car. Phase one: Head unit upgrade with all wiring, fascia, adaptor, mic etc wires in. I think this will make the most noticeable impact in functionality and sound improvement. I have acquired most of the parts and only one needed to be picked up later on is a 3.5mm 1.8m Aux cable, just in case it's required down the line. 1. Fascia, ISO loom and stereo removal keys bought from Ebay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171470784318?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT 2. Headunit, wiring, USB extender, Mic, fascia surround, cage and stereo removal keys.
  4. I am thinking about buying a Alpine ilx 700 double din radio. What will I need for it. I know I'll need a new fascia. Will I need more cables? Has anyone fitted this before. If so, is it difficult? Thanks
  5. Hello everyone, I've got a Ford Fiesta Zetec S 57 Plate and i've been looking at android head units for my car and got two to choose from, I like the look of the pumpkin one a bit more and its got a bigger screen but unsure on the performance of it compared to the eonon. Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated thank you http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pumpkin-Capacitive-Multi-touch-Navigation-Multimedia-y/dp/B00OB90SOY http://www.eonon.co.uk/2-Din-Car-GPS/G2110Z.html
  6. Hello everyone, I am looking at replacing the standard head unit in my fiesta zetec s mk6 with an Android double din head unit. Has anyone got any recommendations on what to go for? I was looking at this but haven't heard of the brand before so a bit unsure http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pumpkin-Capacitive-Multi-touch-Navigation-Multimedia-y/dp/B00OB90SOY#immersive-view_1456176902987 Thank you all for your help :)
  7. Hi all, I recently bought a Double Din stereo with built in GPS etc for my Fiesta MK6. All is great at the minute except the fact that I don't have any maps for the car's navigation system. The radio itself doesn't have any make, or at least I cant see one, so i can't go to a manufacturers website to download any. I'm assuming it can use any maps I install onto the MicroSD card but I don't want to chance it without any advice from anyone who's been in the same situation. Can I use any maps on the system? If so are there any websites that you guys can recommend? Thanks!
  8. Hi, I know there are various posts on this subject but I can't find the answer to my issue. I have purchased a pioneer double din stereo to replace my cd6000 factory stereo. I have pulled the old stereo out no problem. However the cage supplied with new stereo would not fit through the stereo surround trim. So I purchased a fitting kit off eBay specifically for my model focus expecting to be supplied with a cage that fits. However the new cage supplied is the same size as the one that came with the pioneer. So I must be doing something very wrong? If I remove the trim then the whole is way to big for the cage to be secured. I have showered the Internet for a guide or solution, but to no avail. Any help would be very much appreciated!
  9. 6000 Cd Replacement Help

    Hi guys, I am looking to replace my 6000 CD with this double din unit http://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-jvc-kw-av61bt_p-31188.htm I am a complete beginner and don't trust myself to mess with the electrics on my car so would anyone be generous enough to give me a hand if you live near to wigston in Leicester? Also could someone direct me to which cables and such I need to buy so that it will work with the steering wheel controls?
  10. What is better, what to buy Metra or Carav Double Din Frame? Do i really need the buttons in Metra? Where i can buy Carav Frame?
  11. I have a Ford Focus 2013 hatch sport and i want to put in Alpine head unit but i need a dash kit and the only dash kit that i found was this ugly Metra The problem with metra that you need to keep the original player too and i dont want to keep it.
  12. Hi All I've got a Focus from 2002, with the original radio. I like the big buttons and integration with the steering column controls, and it sounds OK, but the lack of Aux input is bugging me. I was thinking of replacing it with an equivalent (perhaps slightly better) one from a later model Focus, with an Aux input. It seems there are a few on eBay. However, they look to be a slightly different shape. Does anyone know if this is a good/bad/terrrible plan? Can you fit the later ones to the earlier cars? Thanks in advance for any advice! Cheers, Tony
  13. Hey, a few days a go I posted a topic and asked for help with a facia for my new alpine double din unit. One of you guys sent me a link, and violla - It's done! It's got bluetooth, aux and ipod, I've wired the mic from behind the stereo, under the steering column, up the drivers pillar and it's in the corner of my windscreen now. Very good call quality, steering controls work perfect, I can't fault a single thing. I can change the colour of the LED's in it, and I'm thinking of either keeping them blue, and adding blue footwell lighting, and changing all the heater controls to bluue. OR; I can change it to red, add red lighting, and add the submarine style interior light. Not sure yet.
  14. Hey Guys, New to the forum, but it seems a great forum to be involved with. I passed my test a few weeks back and bought myself a 1.8 litre, ford focus climate 2006. It had the CD6000 in and I wanted bluetooth capabilities etc, so instead, I've gone and bought an Alpine CDE-W235BT Double DIN. It's a great head unit from what I can tell, I've wired it all up, it works. I've fitted the steering wheel control box, they work. Bluetooth is great, all the functions are great. BUT; It doesn't fit. I'm aware I need a facia, as the CD6000 is actually bigger than a double DIN, and I've found facias online - but the alpine cage is actually too big for the empty hole left. Do I need a different cage? I've never fitted a CD player before - Is it just as simple as clicking something in? Thanks Paul
