Double DIN conversion

Hi all, has anyone seen, got any pictures of or know any more about the double DIN conversion kits from Britpart etc? One caught my eye the other day and got me thinking but I'm knackered if I can find any more info or pictures of one fitted... The thought of modern infotainment in what is otherwise the bestest car in the world has got to be a good thing, if it's integrated well...

Found this:

I'm sure it's the one that Britpart are advertising. Looks pretty good to me.

I've been wanting to upgrade mine for ages after having Apple CarPlay in our second car. The only reservation I have is it will mean losing the timed heater controls - that's pretty much the only thing I use on the OEM screen. Guess I will have to fit a remote FBH kit if I ever go down this road.

There's fitting instructions under the downloads tab.

I thought it was almost impossible to retro fit headunits into the cars?

It’s not going to be cheap,add the cost of a decent head unit to the fitting kit like this on flea bay.

Yep you’d lose info and timed climate as well as permanently devaluing the motor as factory kit cant be put back in due to the dash cutting required ...
But if that’s your thing Rolling Eyes Shocked go for it Exclamation

Think the expensive naviplus addon that gives CarPlay is the only thing to consider IMO

Liked the look of this until I saw you had to cut the dash and can't return it to factory.

Oh well back to the drawing board Rolling Eyes

One of the guys on the RRS forum has been working through one of these solutions. It's an interesting thread and his dash is looking good...

Does not integrate with the MOST factory amplifier. I have been in contact to this company last year.

The screenshots looks very integrated
