    Aftermarket HU

    Hi, I've been taking great information from AOC for about 2 years now but for this one I'm going to have to ask for advise. I've a MK 4 coup. Ive still got the CD 500 stereo fitted and it's starting to keep me awake it night with its ugliness. I've read I think everything available on AM HUs and I think I'll be looking for one of these:

    or

    http://www.halfords.ie/webapp/wcs/st...m_vc=IOV4PLPZ1

    I'm leaning towards the Sony-bluetooth streaming music seems kinda cool

    I know that getting the full display is not happening but which one would be an easier fit and/or which one can I get steering wheel controls with???

    As you all can see I've a long way to go....

    Welcome mate

    Both of those headunits will have steering wheel control inputs with the right adaptor. I'd say the somy will be the easier one to fit as generally the mic is built into the headunit so no need to have to fit on at the top of the "A" pillar or by the interior light
