    these cars aren't designed to have an aftermarket unit fitted because of the MoST fibre optic loop also there are no fascia panels available either..what your seeing in the dash is the control panel not the ehu(sits behind the MCC/ACC panel)..if you want another unit most owners when doing this,run a parallel system & put a unit in place of the cd unit..
    My 9-3 audio,2 x cd changers,aux-in & Bluetooth audio streaming..

    Buy cheap pay twice..

    The only part that will affect the car is the ICM (controls below center vent) the rest (ehu, CD, amps) can be disconnected without affecting the car
