    Steering Wheel Controls?

    Evening all,

    Right, just a quick question really.

    My astra came with a standard philips radio/cassette player which the steering whell controls worked fine with.

    But have just got myself an old pioneer head unit (CD) just until i can afford to get a "Proper" one. Is it stil possible to use the controls on the steering wheel with a new head unit? will i need any extra cables and what not?

    Cheers all

    you will need the adaptor cables for it, they are about £40 for the lot but you have to have a newish headunit which is compatiable for it.
