This has to be one of the cheapest ways to provide you with mp3/USB capability from a reputable manufacturer. Great for older cars and people on a limited budget. Dare say you could probably drive an amp off this and chuck the old 6x9's in the parcel shelf to go with it. It's a rite of passage 1998 or otherwise

I've got a similar Pioneer stereo and it sounds fine. If have it connected to the steering wheel remote controls (about £25 on ebay at the moment). The buttons on the head unit aren't particularly nice to use. This one doesn't have Bluetooth, but it looks like you can connect a phone with a lead. My one doesn't have a CD player. I mostly listen to MP3s on a small USB stick on the front panel. That is generally fine.

Are pioneer as good as they used to be??
I have this and wished not bought it the multi function control to turn on and off and select modes is terrible worst head unit ever had.

Spend more get something better.
Honestly I've bought a Bluetooth head unit for £7 of ebay. This stock must be antique. If you listen to cds in The car, good for you, hope your Sierra is cheap to run on its classic insurance policy...

Good question,this could easily apply to a host of other top names from the past too.It does seem stupidly cheap as a Pioneer 30 or so years ago,for a cheaper version was about £100 more than this. I would of thought all newly made car stereo's today would be DAB at least.

Jesus h, is it 1995 all over again?single din stereo in any car more than 15 years old is going to require a bit of work just to sit right. Will look great in your mk4 escort or evo6
Do these things still exist?

Does this one have the super-flashing dancing LED pattern?

No dab no bluetooth No point

Snobbery comments in this chat are brilliant! Thanks to the OP for the listing. Have been tempted to get a new head unit but would struggle to keep my antique multi changer and steering wheel controls working too so going for a radio transmitter first. Trying to keep my antique motor as much stock as possible considering with its rarity its value is actually appreciating right now unlike the motors of the sheep that flock to by something shiny everytime a new number plate or lease deal comes onto the market.

It's not snobbery though is it? It's just stating facts. I can't remember a car I've had in the last 10 years that doesn't have Bluetooth, so in that respect it's very old tech.
Edited by: "richb3012" 14th Jun
I've just bought a 2018 caravan that has a din, aeriel, all the wiring and speakers for a car stereo (makes sense, thinking about thre leisure battery).

Think I might get this, thanks OP.
I have an older car & have one of these units, sound on them is very good, got a mini USB stick in it with loaded with about 200 albums, file selection is really fast. Hard to knock this for the price IMO.

This 2000 year model, what do you think?
I have a state of the art pioneer double din in my Honda and I have to say they are still a very well made system for you're car.
I remember the days of alpine systems, subs, max power and bass... What happened to us????
Edited by: "nomstar" 14th Jun
Bloody hell these have got cheap. For basic use it's fine. There's always aux instead of Bluetooth, no extra compression
Cheers OP, just picked one up to fit in my 2009 Clio. Orange display will match the rest of the dash lights and adapters for steering wheel controls are cheap enough. The stock head unit in the clio is abysmal!

When you put the new stereo in with a faceplate made for this car just put this original stereo in a box so you can put back when you want to sell the car.

It's a good deal, you'd struggle to get one second hand for less than £20 and often they're 15 odd years old so no aux input (and minimal chance of USB).

I posted a longer rant as to how the standard of displays/navigation hasn't really improved in that 15 year period but this is a decent enough replacement for a broken stock radio in an older car.

Well spotted Yeah it's an 05 HGT 1.8 pretty rare now and struggle for parts! Trying to keep it stock as only about 30+ left on the road here last time I checked.

Some of the even came with an LCD satnav which is even rarer to see now

Different strokes for different folks. Ticks all the boxes for my needs other than the stock head unit and hasn't put a foot wrong in the 5yrs I've owned it.

Erm maybe because you've been buying cars that are less than 10 years old perhaps? Plenty of people and cars still on the road that are older than that. Mines 15 years old now, still ticking with less than 50k on the clock and hopefully will keep doing so.

For the price point and for those that will benefit from it this is a good deal. I don't think anyone is expecting a top of the range head unit from this?

Exactly. I've toyed with the idea of completely remoulding my dash for a double din or getting a fold out touch screen etc but on cars of that age is it really worth it? The cheaper ones will be laggy as hell so my phone is a better satnav anyway. Anything more expensive is just something shiny to be stolen and when it ends up costing nearly as much as the car does what's the point?! At this price it's hard to go wrong
Miss the old type fold out headunits , remember the pioneer mosfet fold out into two panels class.. there all bland now..

Punto Mk2 appreciating? Really? ... Unless its the 1.8 HGT, I find it hard to believe
If you're going to stream music from your phone, there's no real need to buy an expensive head unit if it's quality sound your after. You're paying for a premium purpose built DAC (digit to audio converter), yet using the far inferior DAC in your smartphone as the preferred conversion method. DAC chips included in the vast majority of smartphones were only really intended for low-level signals (earbuds/headphones etc).

Those that have purchased this unit or similar (and are using it with a USB stick) can now gloat at having a punchier bass and wider sound-stage than those that are streaming to their more expensive head units via Bluetooth. ;-)

Fights snobbery with holier-than-thou


Hah Sorry Goldfinger. Was just trying to make the point that not everyone drives a car from the past ten years. If it is new its hardly an antique and if it is replacing old technology at a small price it is a very cheap deal for those that do.

Like I said too it doesn't suit me either, but I can see the value in it.
My 2007 clip campus has a tape and radio unit. The aerial was ‘damaged’ years ago and the garage said to fix they needed to take the whole of the Roof interior down, and then Refix. My uncle Advised use a coat hanger That’s what I used to do!

Anyway are car radios simply plug in and play it is it a case of differing connections, sizes, fuze tripping bodge it in ?

edit: I do have an iPhone with the camera connection kit which gives a usb stream out.

But that's not snobbery is it?
The worlds moved on, just because you have an old car it doesn't mean everyone else are snobs??
