      Thanks for the part numbers for the double din conversion i like your new dash being metallic black do you know the part number for that as mine is blue at the moment so would like to change it to suit the surround thanks.

  3. I really need help mate in just getting started by firstly getting a double din head unit in my car. I don't have a clue where or how to start!

      found it :Smile: ... check out this thread,, I have the part numbers for the bits you will need..the surround I got from honda was the black,, if you need a different finish will not be same code.. @Holdcroft Honda got me fascia and cage for about 95 quid,, autoleads bezel was about 20 quid and around a fiver for harness.

      hope this helps

  6. Hi mate, iv just recently purchased my 2005 FR-V 2.2i Ctdi sport but its been in my family for the last 5 years or so and has been looked aftered n maintained very well. Due to the arrival of our 4th child iv had to go from driving a fully modified Golf gti turbo to a MPV which I can happily live with but more than the power n dump valve I miss my awesome sound system I had. I want to make a start on building my sound system in my humble honda but would like some advice on getting my standard head unit changed to a after market double din unit pls mate. Help!!
    1. chris2982 Avatar
      the bits you need for the head unit are the bezel and cage from honda (I have the model numbers somewhere so will get them sorted for you) see @Holdcroft Honda to sort them,, you will also need the fascia adaptor from autoleads (again will find reference for you), and a harness.. as for the audio equipment itself see me ( if you want) as my brother runs @Allwoods Audio and does special rates for members..can supply almost , if not all brands available.
      what sort of system are you planning for??
