Hi guys, I'm about to replace my standard headunit with an aftermarket one. I plan on selling the standard one but wondered..are they locked to specific cars or can someone just replace their faulty one with mine?

Just to add, I've (almost) fitted a Sony XAV-60 DVD/CD/iPhone unit! Just waiting for the facia adaptor to turn up :) looks sweet!! Just my parrot Bluetooth to install now!!

I followed this guide :- http://sites.google.com/site/kimmokarjunen/dismountingradioinkiaceed
I used a flast bladed screwdriver to prise the dash away from the rest. Time to remove facia about 10mins, cost 0.00. Stereo is a Sony XAV-60 from Halfords in their clearance, spotted it as it had a slight mark on top, down from £299.99 to £199.99. Really simple to connect, there are 2 cables that are no longer used so I tucked them out the way. Ordered facia adaptor off ebay for £29.99 + £5 p&p. Should be here tomorrow or saturday! Looks sweet and runs really well. The Cee'd stereo space is at just the right height and angle for a multimedia unit.

Next job, fit Parrot Bluetooth and then a incar PC.

PS, I live near Peterborough if you need any help/want to see how the Sony looks.

All fitted, had some issues replacing the centre console, I couldn't get it to click back in properly. It seems ok now but still not perfect..no squeaks or rattles though so all good.


Amazing bit of kit!
