    Smile Picking up my mk5 sri with exterior pack on tues..cant wait ;-)

    Finally bit the bullet and am trading in my 1.2 ibiza on tuesday for my 58 plate astra. Have opted for the 5 door model as it fits my lifestyle better (although a small part of me really wanted the sports hatch). Went for the pearlecent black and I have inversted in some carnuba wax to try and keep it nice and shiny.

    I am going to change the head unit on the car as I have a pioneer ipod kit that I took out of my old car. I know that the new steroe will be much smaller than the std astra one and was wondering if anyone else had done this and if so did they manage to get a surround to match the matt silver dash and do the steering wheel controls still work?

    Any little titbits of info or advice would be great not just regarding the stereo but the car aswell.

    Thanks for the help guys

    Joe

    i know kenwood stereos have inputs for steering controls, and halfords usually supply plates to cover the gaps left around the stereo

    This was in my old astra you should be able to get the fascia from any decent car audio place, and its vauxhall specific with the slight curve in the middle, can come in black or silver

    As far as I am aware the cd30 mp3 means you can play mp3 style cd's in it. I know there is an aux imput between the seats but this wont charge the ipod it will just let me listen to it and I know i will always forget to take it into the house to charge.

    Thanks for the pic showing your stereo that facia is exactly what im looking for.

    You will need an adaptor to work with your steering wheel controls, but they are readily available on ebay
