    As Paddy says, the one with the part number ending in 'G' has the gloss black surround and is fitted in MY11 onwards cars. The 'B' has the self coloured (matte) surround and was fitted in MY10 cars. :wub: xx

    So it's just the black surround around the screen then? No difference in processor (e.g speed/performance) or other functionality? Also does the b model support 32gig SD cards? Sorry for all the questions, just very difficult to get detailed specs for these units online.

    Anyone know how hard it would be to switch out the trim surround?

    I've taken mine off before to clean the screen properly, slightly OCD maybe!

    I'm sure you flip the screen out as if you're removing the DVD disc.

    Underneath there is 2 small Philips screws :think:

    It was a while ago so don't quote me on that but it was a 5 min job nonetheless.

    I've bid on a rns-e on eBay, assuming I win the auction are there any suggestions of any good places to have it fitted? I live in south london and would be willing to travel up to 30miles to find a good place. Thanks.
