Excellent, thank you.

Fair point, I'd just like there to be more of a visual deterrant.

True, but it may also deter an opportunist thief.

Ok, so here's a point I'd like to persue! What do I need to order?

Bingo, thank you!
I havent done a radio swap in my vans since a near disaster with a MK2- I took a ICE companys parts selection on good faith and fitted an ISO adapter which zapped the stereo and the vans electrics.
Luckily the van kindly self-healed once it witnessed my state of panic.
The £100 Blaupunkt had to be binned.
My current van has an adequate standard model with front auxiliary inputs including USB-I have a usb stick half full with 1600 songs on it!
Plus,it doesnt look flashy so its not going to attract a brick through the side window.
Some guys on the forum are better genned up to advise you but I tend to leave well alone-dont forget your insurance company will want to know about everything you do or fit to the vehicle(unless you are confident you will be able to undo the mods quickly in case of a prang)
I would advise you to spend some of your dosh first on a set of filters and an oil change.
Its critical on the HDI motors
But at least youd be able to listen to a good beat while you wait for the recovery tow truck...:whistle:
Check the service history
Forum concensus would say that the oil shouldn't be in there longer than 8k.
I changed mine at 6K to be safer still.:thumbsup:
