    Mk5 Astra aftermarket stereos

    Anyone got an aftermarket stereo on their mark 5 (H) Astra? Just wondering what's involved in changing over from a standard unit.

    Thx

    EDIT: Can someone maybe shift this to the ICE forum?

    you need the fascia and adaptor wiring from vauxhall (around £30) did it mine, not to difficult but does involve you removing the centre console as you have to slpice into some wires behind the hazard light switch, you get instructions for this with the fascia and adaptor from vauxhall.

    I'm liking the new astra sporthatch 1.9 CDTi SRI XP, the same one they use as a base for the new 888d. My big decision is whether i should get it in white or not

    My stereo was replaced the other day (CDs were jumping all the time) and I asked about upgrades but you can only get a multichanger or DAB system.
    I'm after a bit more oomph, not extra gimmicky bits.
    Anyone that's upgraded their speakers and/or stuck in an amp, let me know!
    Standard system actually sounds okay, but it's a bit cr4p at low volumes - When a good system really rocks.
