    Few new modifications

    Made a few little changes to the car today, namely new wheels and a new stereo.

    Met up with a guy from AON first thing this morning to swap my 16 inch SXi alloys for his 17inch SRi alloys:



    Next change was the stereo. Took CD30 out and replaced it with an Alpine CDE W203 double din headunit. Have used a connects2 block so the steering wheel controls are still useable:



    Thanks to Glacious for his help with the headunit - unfortunately we were unable to work out his bonnet lifters so unfortunately no changes to his car today!!! hahahaha

    Only thing i have found is the radio signal is crap due to not having a booster thingy on the aerial adaptor! Going to have to put the standard aerial back on to see if i can pick a station up.

    Thanks for the comments guys, mean alot to me! Happiest i have been with the car since i bought it 18 months ago.

    Tom, its not a 10-15 minute job if you sit there scratching your head wondering where the lead off the connects2 block goes!
