Cheers for the responses
Good to know the clutch is generally stiff, I can live with it, I hope and I am sure I will get more used to it.
Reason for asking about the cd changer thing is because there is an ipod interface in the glove box, fitted at my request but it seems that to use it you have to manually set the ipod going then select option 6 on the stereo and tune to 88.4. It works but not as I had hoped, so I pulled out the stereo and I couldnt see any free connector for a cd changer, which I understand is where either an official ipod connector goes or a USB connector.
My other thoughts are to change the stereo, as I have one in the garage from a Fiat Panda I had as I put the original bakc in when I changed that car a few years ago and although the stereo doesnt have the ipod connector, there is line in, USB and SD memory card connectivity, but I suppose I would lose the steering wheel controls and I would have to get a facia plate adaptor.
My other thought was to consider a double din stereo with GPS, has anyone used any of the cheaper ones and where do your route the gps receiver??
One final thing about the frameless windows, I had a Merc SLK and one fault it didnt have was wind noise with the roof and windows up...the roof kept playing up and the auto gearbox was a nightmare, even after a rebuild under warranty, so that went sharpish and I got the 500.
