    Thanks! non OEM mudflaps are from ebay, easy fitting though I had to cut them on one side as they hit the fuel line, easy job though, I'll be updating soon!

    I also did this sticker too


    It has iPod connectivity where I leave my iPod in the glovebox while driving as I can control it from the head unit with all my music on, it has a DVD and CD player and aux for when I want to play stuff from my phone, I recently purchased a blutooth aux adapter to stream music to the Aux input via my phone while it charges, this setup is amazing but cumbersome, I needed two adapters, a radio adapter and a stalk adapter, I had to run the pioneer connectors to the adapter then to the loom in the C2, the aerial adapter was shit so I had to hot glue it together to get a solid signal, it doesen't really fit properly in the slot so I needed to stick on a fascia plate, I moved the radio to the bottom shelf now to stop the screen from blocking the heater vents, A big big thank you to Trek for putting up with my idiotic and nooby questions while failing to understand the installation thread!

    Any questions feel free to shoot!

    Planned upgrades to this headunit would be a 128GB USB full of high quality flac files, the upgraded head unit changed the sound amazingly, it sounded 110 times better, I feel no need to change the speakers anymore as it just sounds awesome.
    If I were to do this upgrade again the things I would consider are, more research into adapters, better fascia plate and to run the wires better as right now they go behind the dash, down to the passengers foot well and up into the glovebox.
