    Hi..

    Looking at a Vw Bora as a possible next car and wanted to find out from any owners how easy it is to replace the standard Gamma headunit with something else ? Does the fact it has 8 speakers (SE model ) amek any odds with wiring to a standard aftermarket headunit ? Do you require a conversion cable from the VW wiring to ISO standard ?

    Any help most appreciated !

    Cheers

    Matt

    i have the same question.
    Is it easier to replace my standard casette headunit with an aftermarket one or get a single gamma cd unit from a scrap yard (which im assuming plugs into the casette unit?)

    thanks

    Hi

    I have a 2002 TDi ST model which only had four speakers fitted. I changed the head unit to a Gamma and fitted four additional speakers. You will need to fit a standard ISO plug.
