Having now got my new 147 I want to install my MP3 Player into the dash intead of the standard unit.
How easy is it to route a wire from the player into the Engine Bay, as the player needs to take power directly from the battery? Anyone tried this?
Also the aftermarket facia surround for standard units, is it the same colour match as the dash surround, because on the '03 147 Models I think the Silver colour is slightly darker than older models

Simply remove the existing H/U, unplug it, plug the the H/U in and refit. At wost you'll need a wiring adaptor (factory wiring plug --> ISO plug, which is what aftermarket H/Us have), but I can't find any listed, so I'dimagine it's a simple case of plug and play...
