    had this put in at the weekend and i'm really pleased with it
    couldn't find anything "off the shelf" to fill the double din space so had this made up instead
    i think it looks nice a tidy and doesn't ruin the look of the centre console

    You have done a good job with that mate looks well tidy. I had a screen in my old gold loved it but had to sell it when I got the S3 as it was a single din. Did you not like the Double din head units from other manufacturers like the Alpine or Kenwood, they do some cracking head units.

    how much did this cost to do out of interest?
    What's involved? Presumably, new centre console, new climate control panel? Do you have to alter the loom at all?

    no dave, i just replaced the bose double din system and replaced it with the alpine head unit

    cheers mate, dont really like the double dins tbh, just like the single units

    i had it fitted for me mate (im usuless with this stuff)
    cost me a little over £200 to have the head unit, 6x9's (with stealth shelf), front speakers, alpine sub and custom made facia fitted
    no new console or climate control needed, they just retro fitted the new facia as is
