Alfa 159 stereo upgrade - new option?

Hi everyone. Just joined as my company 159 1.9 jtdm lusso is being taken away and I'm looking to buy a 2.2 jts to replace. Lusso's look beyond my budget (for a sportwagon) which means no USB connection

Found this:
Alfa Romeo 159 (2005-2011) GPS, OEM replacement Media System - Car Vision UK

Does anyone have any experience? Would I be better going for a 'generic' double-din unit and getting fitting kits etc?

That looks pretty cool.

I ended up with Pioneer AVH 3300 BT which works well but had to buy around 90 worth of fixtures to support it.

There is much debate about whether this Car Vision product has ever been released. Certainly it wasn't available 6 months ago. I wouldn't bother waiting and find an alternative if you are desperate for a USB connection. Won't an extra 500 find you a Lusso? Its a buyers market at the moment.

thanks guys. Not sure about the extra money getting a lusso - it's all about the initial cost - i.e. stereo upgrade could happen later (when wifey isn't watching!)

I think I've answered my own question with more research. This kit:

plus a range of double-din units is going to be cheaper that the Car Vision option for sure.
