    I had the version before factory fitted (or dealer fitted rather). Mint stereo and loads better sound than the standard ones.

    Thanks Dan,
    I've pulled the trigger on this one, got a good deal from someone I know in the trade.
    Bought the matching safety camera also, looks good too but need to figure out how to fit one in the back too.
    Will have to fit it myself but its part of a larger planned system.
    Found a great sub package also, I'll post the findings once the rest of my dynamat arrives.
    Just planning the amp locations and cable routing....nightmare!
    Many hours trying to cram my tall frame into spaces they aint designed to go!
    Cheers bud

    I have the same unit in mine fitted with front and rear sensors (factory fitted) and works well.
    My only comment is that the apple play is really temperamental!
