    A Few Newbie Questions,

    ive got the standard cd-500 in my SRi,
    firstly i guess this doesnt play cd-rw's? (well it doesnt pay mine)
    secodly, i like my pretty loud music, my old car had 2 600w amps and a 800 sub which i like and i know i cant run this of the currnt HU, but dont wanna lose the use of the display in the dash
    are there any HU's that still use the steering wheels controls/dash display but can play CD-rw's and have a couple of pre-outs for amps?
    or is there a way of making the sound from the std cd payer any good, i really need one to play cd-rw;s cos im too tight to but cd's..lol..

    any advice would b good,
    Drives - 08 Astra SRi XP 1.9CDTi 150

    There are many headunits out there taht allow you to use the steering wheel controls and origional display to. Kenwood springs to mind

    I don't know the possibilities about playing CD-RW though

    My kenwood plays cd-rw, although cd-r record faster so I use them (it's an mp3 player so I kinda need to use cd-r/rws)

    just about all the good brands do steering adapters-youll need to buy the loom that goes with the head unit and the corresponding loom for your car, there about £5 and £40 tho. and any HU above about £100 will play Cd-rs etc

    all above available from www.caraudiodirect.co.uk
    Any info on V6 MK4 conversions greatly appreciated!
