I have yet got to get the dash kit. Trying to find about this from Skoda as well. They had a Fabia ACTIVE model which came without the headunit. So trying to get the same dash kit used in this active model.

If not than there it is a kit available in UK from Skoda accessories. Trying to source it some way.

?koda Accessories

?koda Accessories

Or else in the end will have to fabricate the dash kit.

Boom couldnt source it kya?

I have previously also directed you to this ebay seller (SOPORTE RADIO SKODA FABIA FACIA ADAPTOR FASCIA - eBay (item 360141430119 end time Jun-21-09 04:59:30 PDT))

Frank got his universal learning remote from this guy and he ships all over the world. Worth trying him out I think.

Hello Everybody, after much reading and a little wait I got my HU Clarion dxz875 but as lord would have it wives like a nice finanace minister has cut out the budget for rest of the setup. fiscal deficit under tight controls no liquidity

now I stand on 7-8 k for getting it going, I think of doing the comps for front and coaxs for rear or just comps for front and a amp /sub added to it later, id say an year later

I can get stuff from UK, visting soon. please help!!!!!

Now playing a waiting game - let's see when the price reduces again. Else, onlinecarstereo is a backup. 7.5k is still a great deal.

I'd prefer the illusion out of these. Its great value for money.

The one for 150$ is factory refurbished.
So i'd rather prefer the 170$ than the refurbished 150$

Illusion Electra 6.1. Go with closed eyes and just buy them. Very nice, balanced and natural sound, NOT LAID BACK AT ALL.

I found the JBLs a bit bright.

Havent heard Alpines so cant comment.

Oh, I missed that! Yeah, better to put $20 more and get a new piece rather than a factory reconditioned one.

Friend or relative. But it won't be till late next month, which is fine with me since I am in no rush. Also gives me a chance to let the price go down again.

I dont think he would buy the clarion.
It would be a downgrade from the 9887.

If its at Kalaghoda in the morning, I can be there as I have to go to CST around 10 am. So please keep it around 11 am

P.S. - Franky is not buying a HU anymore. I scolded him a lot yesterday. He needs to understand the value of money and curtail all 'unnecessary' expenses in a recessionary scenario. Now Frank is miffed at me and doesnt take my calls also. My teeth have lost the opportunity of being treated by this legendary dentist-in-making.
