    Hi I'm new

    Hi, nice site

    I'm going to be after some advice on how to replace the default Grundig head unit and speakers in a Mk3 Astra. Only real experience fitting stuff like this was changing the standard head unit and front speakers in Pug 107 with my ex's dad (which was a total piece of cake), I think this will be more of a challenge

    welcome to AOC and enjoy the club, from another (multiple) mk3 owner. Front speakers are a doddle, but you should find that the standard front speakers in the mk3 are actually pretty darned good already. I'd just complement them with some 6x9's in a shelf at the back and/or an amp and sub in the boot. In all my mk3's (except for my current one, whose previous owner wasn't very careful) the front speakers have been very good quality. Unfortunately in my new one they had been melted, so my ex put some pioneer ones in, and modified the original speaker mounts to take them. Check your tweeters in the wing mirror pods too as they are prone to dying but are easy enough to pick up at your local scrapyard - they pop in and out easily.

    Welcome to the site. Personally I would disagree on the comments on the standard MK3 speakers being good. They are pretty average at best tbh. well worth upgrading to some after market components. Lot will depends on the budget you are looking at, but it wont cost a fortune to put a decent head unit & front speaker setup in. Bit more for a sub & amp.
