    Yep, check the link I posted, about £6 from Ebay.

    However, I would trawl the scrapyards and get a genuine Peugeot one. They have a built in anti-slip mat. You should be able to pick one up easily enough as the bog standard 307s - "Rapier" & "S" had a single stereo, either a radio cassette or radio & single CD.

    OK, so I'm liking the look of this, Pioneer DEH-X3500Ui:

    Halfords | Pioneer DEH-X3500Ui Car CD Player

    I know it maybe not one that has been suggested, but you can change the colour to the Peugeot dash orange... (OCD much)! It also has loads of great reviews... Honest!
    Bluetooth for the phone isn't much of a concern, most of her trips are short to and from work, any longer journeys she's using the phone as sat-nav anyway, or she would be with me...

    So, all I need is that and this:

    PIONEER - PEUGEOT 206, 307 Steering Wheel Stalk Adaptor | eBay

    Does it matter if it's a 'Dynamic Sounds' cable and not a 'Connects2' one? What is that other little 3.5mm cable for?!

    Also do you know if I will need an aerial adaptor?

    So with those two things I will have a working stereo w/steering wheel control in 20 minutes @Gibbo ?

    Some threads on the Peugeot forum suggesting swapping yellow and red wires for some sort of standby live to keep radio presets and turning off with the ignition?

    Kol.

    That would be all you need. I dont think that matters too much. Connect2 are "Big" in that sort of stuff.

    Connects2 are the manufacturer of the cable.

    Dynamic Sounds is the name of the shop.

    I can't vouch for the 20 minute changeover with a Pioneer stereo though!

    It doesn't say anything about the aerial adaptor, one of these:

    Yep - I found this as otherwise the headunit forgets your settings. Easy to do though.

    Ah thanks, couldn't really work it out as some cables start CTS (which I thought stood for Connects2) and some start with DS (Dynamic Sounds).

    PEUGEOT 206 307 Steering Control Stalk Adaptor CTSPG006 | eBay

    Or this:

    PIONEER - PEUGEOT 206, 307 Steering Wheel Stalk Adaptor | eBay

    It seems the picture of what they're advertising in the first - CONNECTS2 CTSPG006, is the cable set that ensures the steering wheel control, but then in the other - DYNAMIC SOUNDS DS-PG006 (and from what I've seen from the back of the unit), it's the little 3.5mm cable that does that. That isn't shown in the first picture, I presume due to the fact you can add 'any' free patch lead to the order. So it looks like the main picture in the first one is the wiring for the steering wheel control but it isn't, that's just the power/speaker wires (?) and it's the little 'patch' lead that you add to the order that actually does the control and that isn't shown. Looks like in the second one they've labelled it as DS-PG006 as they've bundled the power/speaker wires and the correct Panasonic steering wheel control together. So confusing, I hate being a n00b

    Anyway, looks like the aerial lead is standard and the 3.5mm jack goes in the little black hole for the steering wheel control...

    Edit: The little 3.5mm hole says W/R so I hope that's something along the lines of Wired Remote, glad it doesn't say AUX IN/LINE IN or anything lol ...

    Finally got around to updating this post!

    As you can see, the stereo is a different model from the ones I was looking at, due to the fact that I took the GF to choose for herself.

    Halfords | Sony WX-GT90BT 2 Din Bluetooth CD/MP3 Player

    The fitting was as straightforward as suggested, however I did find a huge amount of space at the back and the fact that the stereo is only really 1 1/2 din helped. I think I would have struggled otherwise as the connecting cables were quite bulky. I also did need an aerial adaptor, but I went back to Halfords to chat with the guy about fitting and dropped a hint about 'how I wasn't told it might be required', anyway he chucked it in free...

    Oh yeah, the important bit... Sounds great! Thanks for everyones help in this thread!

    Looks nice.

    I was thinking of getting one of these Erisin ES966D HD 3D Menu Car DVD Player GPS DVB-T PiP [ES966D] - US$214.00 : erisin.com

    Anyone had this type? any thoughts?

    It's pocket money for what it is, but you get what you pay for in car audio. Expect compromises aplenty (including crashes, lockups etc judging by the OS!) but may be worth a punt. I always steered clear of no-name Chinese stuff, but an equivalent JVC or similar is closer to £1000...

    My thoughts exactly. Have a read a few reviews and it does seem to be cheap looking but good functionality. All the units come from the same factory in China and are then badged by Erisin and others but underneath are all the same.

    As you say you get what you pay for. Might take a punt.

    Hi. I have the ES966D. The USB isn't working. On the rear usb doesn't read my stick and on the front it reads a stick but that's all. On the Erisin site it states that you can start the unit with the brand of your car, thats not true!!! Also the app's cannot be positioned on another place, so thats also not true. Erisin doesn't response on technical questions. Buying one gave a response very fast, but technical questions is too much it seams. For the rest its a good unit.
