    Not sure but why would you want to when standard equipment is at best poor?

    Any reason why you want the cassette or do you just want to go standard?

    I don't like the look of an aftermarket stereo in my car. Not particularly worried about the cassette player, just want the natural look in my car not chrome shiny flashy stereos lol

    Is your car a B5 Facelift?

    This concert I got might fit and work.
    I think its a CD unit but I can double check when I'm home.

    The car itself isn't a facelift, but have done the conversion on the centre console for a partial facelift.That would be even better Scott, and will it plug and play/fit? And how much please?

    nothing worse than an aftermarket stereo, why do they use bright colours and cheap silver plastic.

    I use this with my audi cassette player..

    Not sure on price at the moment but It wont work with a PFL B5 as it requires canbus to operate properly.
    It might work without but I need to double check.
    I also need to test the unit before I sell it.

    My Alpine doesn't blend in at all but it sounds superb so am willing to sacrifice the OE look.

    A standardised form of communication for the car and all its components.
    Parts of the B5 facelift range requires it to turn items on, off, lights and such.

    So just tried a vw gamma in the derv, and that didnt fire up either, can anyone think as to why? Iv taken my concert apart and haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary on the inside, and still no joy. But when I plug the aftermarket stereo In, it fires straight up :/????

    Do you have a multi meter? Check the live feeds. Not impossible the aftermarket unit has been set to run just off the permanent live rather than the ignition live

    Gamma is old, it probably uses different power connections to later cars, they changed them about a few times.
