    You may also need aerial amplifiers for this retrofit. I have some for sale. Will be putting them in the classifieds in the next couple of days. So feel free to pm me if you need them

    The nav will be a straight swap from your old unit and will then need coding to the car to tell it what equipment you have such as bluetooth ect

    Get one and do it yourself very simple mod to do, there's plenty of threads out there. Just need vcds to code it, they come up on eBay or buy it from Ross-tech then selves. Always try having a go at your own mods get a better feeling that you accomplished it yourself rather than pay someone else to do it.
