    Lo mate, I have a VTR and the stereo itself went in pretty easy. No fascia adapter required for a standard sized HU. The main ballache with mine was running the live feed to the battery (most hu's dont require this so shouldnt be an issue unless you go for something mid-top end).

    Fitting new speakers is where things get annoyingly tricky. Feeding wires through the door hinges is near on impossible and have to be drilled iirc.

    Me and pee just took the easy option and used the exisiting cabling

    Halfords are twice the price of Empiredirect

    I wired a new... [can't remember the name for it now!] in to my car which youw ould then plug a smart lead in to and then in to the back of your radio.

    New Fascias - http://www.halfords.com/ourproducts.asp?root=1&id=46#46

    fitting a radio is very easy - even if you do need a facia to make it sit properly
