    Standard Head Unit?

    Hello people, I have recently bought a MK4 SRi and am pondering the ICE options...

    I already have an Alpine IDA-X100 that I had installed in my previous Astra but the SRi I have now has quite a good head unit standard, even if it does look like something out of a history museum

    Ideally what I want to do is relocate the standard head unit to the bottom slot below the heater controls and install the Alpine one in the top slot.

    This way I can have the MFD fully working with the MPG counter etc and also play CD's and have the Alpine for my iPod and because it looks good lol...

    Is there a way of doing this? I wouldnt mind ditching the standard head unit but I want the MFD working as it does currently

    Thanks, Joe.

    If your worried about loosing the trip computer info on the MFD then everything will still work if you change the headunit with the exception of the factory nav unit I believe

    The problem with running 2 headunits is only 1 set of speakers so needing to do some speaker to RCA adaptor then putting that into the AUX input of your alpine headunit if it even has one
