If it's not a stupid question what's wrong with the Kia unit.
My car has the Kia JBL system and it's superb. Ok, it not the loudest but the sound quality is great.

Looking at buying one, they tend to be a good £1000 more expensive with the kia unit installed, plus map updates will be expensive and not as up to date. Aftermarket units tend to be £400 for a really good one that runs apple car play and android using Google maps which is free and you can use 2 cameras. So for less that the extra £1000 id save i could upgrade to a better unit thats future proofed and more advanced.

For £10k I can get a 2016/ maybe 2017 with sub 50k miles but no nav. £11k to £12k would get you a 2018 base model at a push, but nothing necessarily newer. Id rather pay 10 grand for a decent 2016 and upgrade the nav myself I think. The grand id save wouldnt get me anything newer, just the trim level which I can do better myself for £500 if you see what I mean.
