    With it being sony, its pretty much straight forward

    Autoleads PC99-X06 stalk adapter costing £29 from halfords or any other audio place and the PC99-SON for £5 aswell

    hope this helps

    Double check your Sony headunit will take steering wheel controls, not all of them do

    Yes those headunits do take stalk controls

    Know that as I've fitted about 6 in the past few months

    The Pc99-SON basically is a small patch lead that makes it work on sony headunits

    Yes I've heard of Hertz speakers ( not actually listened to a set though I'm afraid ) but from the reviews on Talkaudio.co.uk they're very good

    I fitted a set of hertz to a merc 190e not so long ago, they sounded really good although, i couldn't get the tweeter position how i wanted it due to the car's layout.

    Be careful buying brands such as hertz from bassjunkies. They advertise JL audio on their site but a.you can't advertise jl on the net and b.they arent even dealers of jl.

    ive been talking to the guy who sets up all the sound and lighting stuff in my girlfriends pub and he recomends bose everything, his words were "you can get a cracking bose head unit for £800" but as i cant afford that he mentiond hertz speakers, i dont know if bassjunkies sell them ive not looked into it that much. so why cant you buy JL Audio on the net? as you all can prob guess im not that well up on ICE but its a subject im intrested in so if anyone knows any good forums where i can have a good read let me know.

    thanks
