    Yes, but it would be +VAT and + import duty of the original purchase price ie $37.

    That is an amazing price! I've had a symphony in mine for about a year and it is a marked improvement on the concert especially when you find the hidden eq and adjust the settings.

    ive just ordered one, havent got double din, but at that price its going to be!!! even for £90 thats **** hot, s/h units sell for that!


    i belive the usa units receive the same hz frequency as us

    just had to google to be sure

    In the United States, frequency-modulated broadcasting stations operate in a frequency band extending from 87.8 MHz to 108.0 MHz,

    so exactly the same as us,

    did find a baffling page about radio frequncy allocation from 3khz to 300ghz lol

    You really need the DD console/climate unit/ashtray to give you enough room. The ashtray is smaller and moved further down, and the climate unit is shaped to fit into the now tapering hole.

    Check for Vat and Duty, it only counts on purchases over a certain amount (I think its £30 for one and £130 for the other) do you wont have to pay both. Watch out for US radios as they have different steps to us you might find that while it covers the same band it wont allow you to tune perfectly to UK stations.

    I believe the US parts are different and incompatible...

    Different part numbers, plus they notice later units have a region coding but same PNs.
