    Stereo Upgrade Astra H

    Hey guys,

    Am new to the forums, so first of all, hey! Right next week im picking up a 2006 twintop, and being a bit picky about how my music sounds i want the change the stereo ASAP.

    Just wondering what facia adapter i would need for a single din h/u and also what stalk adapters would i need in order to be able to still use the steering when controls?

    Thanks in advance!

    Most of what you need to know is covered in my thread here http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...d.php?t=242865

    As for the fascia adaptor you will need something along the lines of http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/6994.html although I am told that the Connects2 version is a better fit and colour match.

    It depends on the colour of your dash mate as they alter the number for the colour it is. I'd check for the items on eBay though too, I got the autoleads fascia for less than a tenner on there, and the other parts were all much cheaper too!

    ahhh thanks, when it says silver though on the fascia adapter, is it silver silver, or like the 'champagne' silver?

    I think champagne has its own kit, I'm not certain though, the autoleads and connects2 colours are named differently (helpful I know!)

    Best thing you can do is pop down to your local halfords and see if you can match the kit to your car, then go home and order it for a fraction of the price off the net!
