Seems a bargain!
Thanks & HOT!

quite interested in this, are these things easy to install? is it just a case of unplugging the old one & plugging in the new?

does anyone know if you plug a ipod touch into the usb can you control it via the controls on the cd player??

Car radios are simple enough to install. you just plug them in. This will come with a standard ISO connector so it should be a straight swap if you already have an aftermarket stereo. If your car still has it's original factory radio you can buy an ISO adaptor specific for the car and if required a fascia adaptor and aerial adaptor. Don't buy adaptors from Halfords cos they cost a small fortune from there, you can get most for less than half the price on ebay, and a lot of sellers provide full fitting kits.

Just has a/v in so I doubt you can control your ipod through it.

How do you get a radio out of the fascia? thanks

you need to buy special keys they cost a pound. go to a shop that specialises in car audio they will guide you. It is easy to remove the stereo when you have the keys.

Fitting a new stereo is relatively simple. Just follow the instructions.

This might be a bit of a stupid question, but isn't this a bit distracting for the driver?

Yes, but so is a mobile phone, satnav, nagging wife, kids and the hot babes in the street.

The real answer to the distraction question is that it's supposed to be wired up to the handbrake, and the DVD is meant to cut out if the handbrake is off. I had mine fitted by Halfords, but they didn't bother with that part, so mine would play all the time. You definitely get what you pay for with these. I personally wouldn't get another one - they are very plasticy and cheap feeling, and the numbers rubbed off the buttons on mine almost immediately. But hey, it was cheap, so I'm not complaining.

Possibly the cheapest way to crash your chav car, love it and heat added lol

A few years back these car dvd players were worth a lot of money and now they r down to 50 quid wow!

The fact that they have a large amount of these refurb units to sell is a good enough reason NOT to buy it.
For there to be that many refurb'ed units they must be prone to faults, poorly made, or both...

Seriously, what the ****..

Seriously do you know what being a refurb can involve?
Returns:
due to fault
due to customer not liking device
due to not suitable for vehicle
to factory due to box damage
Missing parts
Customers fibbing and saying it's faulty when it's not

It could have been Halfords had a load with damaged boxes sometimes refurbing can be testing and putting in a new box or even just replacing a missing intruction manual.

Ok it could be as you imply but it could be innocent

Anybody recommend a cheap decent stereo for car that plays mp3 off dvdrs?

I had real difficulty getting an after market stereo to fit my MINI which had the factory fitted Harmon Kardon speaker/amp upgrade. The only place that sold an adapter was a guy on the internet who built them as a hobby. It cost about £70 just for the adapter!

These are cheapo chinese, I have no doubt that there were a lot of returns from when they were £100+, but they are just £45-50, come with a 12 month warranty and I've found with these sort of products they either break within 5 mins or last forever.

I'm hoping this one does, and according to one of the reviews it also has an SD slot and they used a 16gb card in it.

My girlfriend worked in Halfords head office, they referb thousands of these as they break all the time.
