    Has anyone actually had this installed and have anything to share about it??

    Please share, as I have to drive this S1 firm vehicle around for the next two years and the s#itty stereo is already driving me to tears. I'll pay for the upgrade myself!

    Go to a CAM (car audio masters) dealer and negotiate package. The fascia is advertised at $580 but you can do deals with them.

    Looking good, will have to get one of these around tax time with the sound system :)
    Can you change the control panel to black instead of silver so it goes with everything else?

    It comes in black and silver as standard - Silver is an overlay that you can put on yourself if you want.

    I love the idea of this product and i love that i can have an aftermarket stereo....

    BUT... i don't love the hvac buttons.....

    Can the parts be supplied to allow the use of the factory hvac controls?

    I understand that the stock facia will have to be modified and cut apart, but that's fine by me.

    Let's just say Holden doesn't want you to be a road emperor in your VE. They'd rather you were a road peon

    yes you can put any double din unit in..but your steering controls may not work with a china special..and maybe some of the advertised features of the head unit!!

    Turbocorty, lovin the fact that somebody has finally got something like this out on the market, but personally I'm not real keen on the industrial button look. Would be very keen if something more like the original set up was available.

    Looking for a VE
    Didn't know this existed. Just want to clarify... So this will obviously make it so that the Players support RCA etc and have a much better quality correct?
    If so, I'll seriously contemplate getting this done to my SV6.
    I'd really like to see one SV6 with this done so I know the final product though.

    And to OP, on the first video you showed I saw the radio station and thought "Oh, wow a Mackay guy!" Haha. Saw the 100.3 Hot FM lol.
    Moving to Townsville next week though.
