    If I knew what VCDS was Mike it could be but sounds like the abbreviation for some disease to the un trained eye lol. The first thing I'm going to be after is a decent head unit as I'm not overly keen on the sound the concert produces (then maybe see about swapping out the standard speakers for the bose set if thats even possible?) and some 18s with decent rubber will probably come second. Going looking for quotes on chip and scuff repair for some patches on the bonnet and a hidden one on the rear number next week.

    Thanks Sarah!

    I wouldn't bother with Bose as you'll probably get a better aftermarket setup for the same price of cheaper. You could always get the rnse sat nav for a new head unit

    Yes the Bose upgrade isn't cheap at all tbh, rns upgrade is nice, but Bose maybe reconsider, although we can supply/fit the lot :)

    Nhn whereabouts are you based? Not so sure about the satnav replacement as I tend to use them more visually than by the sound as my definition of directions differ from that in sat navs and the windscreen mount for my Tom Tom sits really nice and low just the fact the cable trails for quite a while. Went to Cheshire car audio and their prices were OTT IMO for aftermarket units but halfords online seem to have quite a few good deals,

    I could come to you :)

    If you have dis, then the directions would come up in dis & nav screen, remember its a larger widescreen so very visible when driving.
