    new cd player

    Hi folks.
    Just a quick question about installing an aftermarket cd player in an astra h. I am wondering if there is a way to still use my on board computer with mpg and stopclock etc on it even after installing one. I know some cars have connections so you can but cant seem to find anything for an astra. Can anyone give me some info on this? Cheers

    You'll still be able to access all this if you fit a new stereo but what i'd recomend is that you look into a stereo which links to the steering wheel controls then you can get the connects2 adaptor which allows you to get into all the setting for the MFD

    Check the technical specs on the manufacturers website, it should say something like "Steering Wheel Control: Steering Wheel Control Ready" if it is.
