Nice one, I done the same, Unfortunately I cant get the voice control to work with the bluetooth TCU I have retrofitted. Will have to have a trawl through the coding files and see whats going on.

Can you get hold of some lengths of fibre optic cables with the ends on? Im retrofitting the DVD changer soon and I'm just missing the MOST fibres, reluctant to buy another CD changer retrofit harness!

Cheers

Stuart

Yeah the TCU upgrade is really worth it, will have to sort the coding for the SVS!

Ahh right nice one thanks, Will have a look for the part number and get a quote. The DVD changer I ordered has the connector minus the fibres, and I just ordered the video module connector for the CVBS input as FOC samples from Tyco Electronics.

Yeah there is fan to connect, is it just one? the radial style that exhausts through the vent behind the bumper? Its driven via a relay from the power module, I will definitely enquire about the retrofit harness at the dealers.

Thanks!

Stuart
