Some places pump the price up almost to put buyers off ordering when they don't have them in stock, saves on their ebay fees of taking down and putting up listings I think, but they normally put on a ridiculous price. £130 extra might just be due to the recent influx of orders!

Has anyone contacted them about a group buy or forum discount maybe?

Let us know how you get on vince as I'm in the same boat was going to place my order next week! Now the price has gone up I'm going to have to reconsider. Although there are other sellers of the same unit.

I mailed them asking about the price increase and if it was the same unit as the lower priced model and their reply was

"Thanks for your message and sorry for the inconvenience cause. This unit is total the same with that one you see last time. We raise the price just because this unit is out of stock temporary and we would like to stop the following order for the time being. The price will back to normal once it is available. We will inform you once it is back to stock,"- its as gforce said they seem to have run out of stock .it was nice of them to reply and offer to email when they are available

beat me to it ferret, :P i got a similar email explaining the same thing, looks like im waiting till 3/3/13

they also said this in the email
If you want to get the unit soon and you are willing to wait, you can click the "Make Offer" button at the top of this eBay listing to make an offer of GBP249.9 . Then we will accept your offer and send you an eBay invoice.

useful if somebody cant wait, as i presume it will be delivered from the warehouse in Hong Kong which can take up to 14 working days (alternative to waiting till march for the uk stock to arrive)

To anyone who has fitted one of these, how does yours power up? I have one that looks the same as the ones shown but not purchased from the same place, and it will only power up with the ignition at position 2 i.e all dash lights illuminated. Are yours the same or is there a way around this? Ideally i would like it to power on at position 1 or even without the key in (as the original did).

Sorry for the thread hijack. :ph34r:

Hey Sinister,

Mine only powers up as you describe.

I know what you mean, I kinda liked the old factory sony unit features where you could power on without key in ignition and it would light up when you buzzed the key fob.

Not sure if there is anyway around this, maybe a wiring issue which is a bit beyond my scope.

I am happy I bought this unit though and to be honest its worth this small sacrifice for all the other features that come with this unit and it looks the nuts in my focus without blowing my own trumpet lol :-)

My branded pioneer unit powers up the same way too. Doesnt have an on/off button lol

When i first fitted it i had a head scratch when i went to turn it on n found no on button

like you say it would be nice to be able to use it without the key in the ignition like on the ford headunit
