    Myself and Badman gee have just bought this cracking Head Unit and thought we would share it with you guys..

    If your looking to upgrade your Head Unit and dont want to brake the bank then this needs a look in..

    Its a Cd, USB, Ipod, Iphone player and charger..

    The best thing with this unit is the fact that you can ''100% MATCH'' the dash lights!!!!! and set it to any colour you want with its 35k colour spectrum choice... You can even set it to be one colour in the day and another at night!!!! B-)

    Best part its only £99!!!!!!! :-o



    We bought the Unit from:

    I have got this in the car, similar to the Becker Traffic Pro but its playing up, so don't know wether to get it repaired or not.
    The Sony looks interesting...... :-?

    HT for £99 its a bargin...
    The fact that you can 100% match any colour dash lights sold it for me..
    With any aftermarket head unit trying to match the interior lights can be a problem.. But not with this :D

    A youtube review..

    (Sorry its not in english!! :)) but you get the jist...)

    Quick fitting question: the OEM head unit has a "knob" out the back that interlocks with a bracket in the dash. How do these aftermarket units sit in the aperture? Is there a chance of sagging?

    There supplied with a metal cage that you have to fit first. The unit then slides in and clicks into place ;)

    Really easily produced when you remember to take the photos as you go along. I think at least twice I had to take the head unit out again because I missed an important photo :bashhead:

    Completed the install of a Clarion FZ502e today. There was a rubber bung "knob" which perfectly lined up with the OEM unit length. Very pleased, fits very well, will post a new thread with pics of the install.
