Replacement Fascia for an 05 147

I want to replace the standard head unit in my 147 with a single DIN size JVC which will play mp3 discs.
I'm comfortable with the electrics and making sure the switched power is in the right place, the wheel adapter and I'm assuming that I won't get the head display repeated in front of me but I'd like to be surprised.
The one thing that's bugging me is getting the replacement fascia panel to fill the gap. There are loads available, are they all the same? if not which is going to look best? It looks as if the facelift 147 requires a double din replacement - which might replace the fairly useless card and cup holders with some usable space - or am I misinterpreting the adverts
I'd far rather have a good one than a cheap one (I bought an Alfa remember). Any recommendations?

Give a man a fire and he's warm for the evening.
Set a man on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life.

I just ordered a facia for halfords and it fit perfectly and blends in with the dash just fine it came in exactly the same colour as the centre console (sort of grey brushed aluminium ish colour) I have an 02 plate so not sure if is any real difference, as for your steering controls you can get adaptor cables to retain the steering controls
