    You might want to try running a CD lens cleaner through it. Other than that, there are several head units that will slot straight into your car (so long as they have been divorced from the previous car via tech2) - the CD30 MP3 (which is exactly the same as the CD30 but with the ability to play MP3 CDs, and an AUX input on some models) and the CDC40 Opera, which by far is the best quality headunit, and has a 6 disc in dash stacker, unfortunately though with no MP3 playback nor AUX input. There's also the CD70, but there's no point going for that unless you also upgrade your display to a CID.

    Also, if you get the right cables from Autoleads/Connects2/whoever, you should be able to use the SWC with most third party headunits, though you'll need to make sure you have a cable that matches both the Mk5 Astra and the exact headunit that you'll be using.
