    yeah its pretty similar in colour the ebony pearl iirc

    as for your headunit you will need some fascia trims to fill the gap either side of your new headunit and a suitable block connector lead i dont think you can run the OEM changer with aftermarket headunits but i may be wrong !!

    Fascia trims are visible here

    Thanks for that I ordered a new headunit yesterday not going to bother using the CD changer. Do you know where to get the facia adapter from and will I need to use a wiring harness to connect it?

    When I did this I couldn't get the rear speakers working. You have to switch the breakable connector on the misleadingly (is that even a word?) labeled wire which says something like 'Mute'. There are only two wires on the ISO harness which you can 'break', so it will be obvious when you get it.
