    Sweet, I'll like to see pics when available.

    I think the new york is larger than standerd DIN size although I am not totally sure.

    Whelllll now... That would fit noicely into my Durango, as it is Din and a Half... not standard Din... Good luck installing if it's not a din and a half already in there, it's a BIT-CH to get them into smaller spots.

    Nice unit Sam.

    If you don't have pre out you can use high level speaker to low level phono converters.

    This is what people used to do years ago.

    I am sure Sam knows a decent alarm is a 100% requirement when you have a aftermarket audio system.

    Before I had a alarm, part of my first install was nicked over three years ago, I had a very nice £280 Ultrasound alarm/Imobiliser installed that day and I have not had any problems since.

    i finally worked it otu & there is a fifferent lead that plugs into the proprietry sockets on the back to give me pre outs

    typical blaupunkt

    the only problem si htey aint installed my aux in connector (cant use it yet anyway)

    but it annoys me that the fascai si catching when ti try to oepn so im off back there
