    Hi,

    I am cuently thinking of buying the car in the link below

    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...69?logcode=dsp

    How can i go about upgrading from the standard radio system to the ones seen in some SE/sport models, which include the phone, TV and sat nav.

    There are some units on eBay, but what would i expect to pay to get everything needed.

    gonna be well over a grand second hand on the bay or at the scrappys.
    then you need all the wiring/plugs/modules etc,then it may not work coz it hasent be de-reged from previous car.

    so buy a car with it all on m8 or get aftermarket head unit with the built in gadgets.
