Got the DAB Antenna in the Boot, it's absolutely useless, I'd say worse than the Windscreen effort, but sadly it's too late to remove it now (the Antenna in the Boot) as the cable is under the Carpet. If it weren't for this i'd return it. What may not work for me could for you. It seems to work OK when parked up but driving about not really.

Got the underseat subs in place now, they sound great!

I managed to remove the Head Unit to connect the Windscreen DAB Antenna, slightly better, atleast it works when it wants to when the Car is being driven.

Just need to work out what type of Tool I need to remove the undertray of the Glove Box?

Thanks.

Are you talking about the panel underneath the glovebox where there is a light above the passengers feet in the footwell? Or the glovebox itself? The panel I'm talking about is held in with 2 or 3 torx screws then it'll slide/fall out.

Which bit are you talking about? I feel we're talking about two different things.

The actual tray beneath the Glove Box (above the Footwell as you say), I do believe it is just 2 Torx Screws, but are the different sizes and types of this Screw?

Cheers Sonic :)

I THINK it's Torx T25 holding that panel on but I could be wrong!

Fairly sure from memory it's two screws and then it'll slide out a bit and then down.

Sorry for using the Video.

How you been? Do you still have the E82?

I ended up getting a Pioneer AVH-X4900DAB Double DIN

As crap as DAB coverage can be, I couldn't live without my fix of Kiss & Kisstory.

Sadly the Parrot doesn't have DAB I don't think. And is getting on in years now.

That's good. The DAB app? Didn't know there was one? Does that require a USB dab dongle?

Oh right, didn't have to do that with mine lol. Yeah it does DAB through the internet, and uses your phone to get the data.

I do like the Janus Design Fascia, but couldn't justify the price for just a piece of Plastic, it made me wince paying enough for the Connects2 Double DIN Fascia :oops:

Not looking to buy your Car, but in todays climate what is it worth? I had noticed you upgraded your Headlights though...? And I do like your Subwoofer Enclosure ;)
