    SE model, so she has plenty of toys huh ?
    Interior looks good, can't see any signs of wear.

    Exterior looks in pretty good nick too, I'd give her a machine buff, polish and wax, that'd put some shine back in her.

    Has she been parked up a while ? Brake discs look a little rusted in the pics ?

    Yep, owner bought a new honda so it been stud for 3 months, but i bought disk break cleaner to help remove all the brown, also hopefully itll help unstick the brake pads too, as i don't want to rock the car and do any damage, also the car is 100% rust free with full service history, with only 1 owner from new.

    Might be worth stripping those brakes down whilst the weather is still semi decent and rebuilding them. Get her ready for winter.

    That a dent on the passenger left door or just a reflection?

    Since the guy bought it new, apperently the bose d system has never been turned on once, so the speakers have never played any music ever, but when i tried the system it sounded really good.

    Thats a nice and easy repair them. If you are changing the discs, you will need to do the pads as well. You will need to get a wind back tool to get the rear piston in.

    I've also been toying with this idea for over a year now!

    In theory it is not too difficult - all we got to do is remove the single DIN stereo and heater controls. The heater controls have to be relocated to the bottom (either in place of the clock or under or swap). Then we have to buy a cage that the 6th gens with Sat Nav factory installed had - install that then fit the double din unit.

    Alternatively, if you want the nav, you can get single DIN units that have a flip out screen which does the same job as double DINS.

    Don't you need a cradle for the bottom part though, also don't like flip outs

    I have the bose sound system, so just want to move AC and radio to bottom and just use sat nav for directions
