I recently just got my car back from the garage where they diconnected the battery so now i'm having to input my code for my Siemens CDR500 in my Astra Coupe. The code in my manual is wrong and the garage tried it 3x and i tried it 1x, i was planning on getting a new Head unit very soon anyway.
I currently have a new centre console i've sprayed as well as gear/handbrake gaiters etc so i'm wanting to do it all in one go.
I'm looking for a headunit which can control iPods, and have steering wheel controls with the adapter. I've found this item on caraudiodirect.co.uk and its the Alpine CDE-9872RM which is £94.99 which can control ipods with the additonal wire (which i will run round to the drivers cubby hole) and it can use steering wheel controls with the adapter.
My question is also which Steering adapter do I need, if my astra is a 1.8 Bertone 54 Plate which adapter will I need, the InCar one says from 98-04 and the Connects 2 one says 04+ so i'm confused which I need, i'm guessing the InCar one?
What do you think of my HU choice?
