    Good evening to all.

    I have just joined this fantastic forum after reading nearly every page. After buying a 2003 exec model I have lots of question which I will ask gradually.

    My first one is regarding replacing the head unit. The sat nav has the disc read error and I managed to knock a £ 100.00 off the asking price for the car so am keen on replacing the unit.

    My budget would be around £150 ish. After seeing some good looking prices on eBay I am excited at this being possible. However I really don't know which one to pick. Could anyone perhaps recommend a unit ?

    Would make this feeling of dread go away.

    for 150 quid you could get an android unit from amazon.....I've just fitted a touchscreen double din unit from them...bluetooth, usb, micro sd, dvd and cd player, auxilliary input plus inputs for front and rear camera and video..outputs for subwoofer and external speakers...all for 86 quid...ok its not pioneer quality, but it works and fits the hole in the dash

    Thanks for the help. I ended up fitting a Naviskauto unit from Amazon. It went really well and took me about half an hour. Feeling chuffed.
