You'll need a conversion cable i'd have thought (plug & play if your car isnt too old) - alternatively, get someone to fit it for you

It's not difficult by may void the warranty on the stereo if not fitted by a pro. I think most car audio specialists will fit for free these days if you buy it from them.

Yeah sure halfords fit stereos to cars

ask at Halfords-the fitting guys will tell you if you need an adaptor frame -or i think you can look on the website. Just fitted partners combo one and did a free fit at Halfords as i didnt feel confident to do it myself. Have a look on their site what comes with free fitting?

halfords will fit it. chances are your one is double DIN (twice the size of a normal one) so you may need to buy an adapter as well, which is £20 from halfords. might be better getting this from ebay as its a fiver in some places and get someone to fit one for you if halfords as to charge £40. these are very easy to do, take about 10 mins

avoid the cost of a conversion cable and just switch the red and yellow wires (as thats all it does for a vauxhall).

Dead easy to do - echo the "buy the bits from eBay" advice...

i have a corsa 1.2 and fitted a stereo from Halfords last weekend - took 10 mins: I bought the removal clips (You'll need these!!) removed the stereo, and then undid the screw at the bottom of the cage - pulled it out and fitted the new one.
ISO standard cables - so clipped together without fuss - only trouble was hiding the extra cables for 5.1 and the other rubbish - loads of space behind the stereo cage though:
