I have an Alpine CDE-101E in my GTV, compared to the original Clarion the sound is in another league. It plugged straight in apart from the antenna needing an adaptor.
It has a single disc, as well as a USB input. I normally transfer files to a USB stick and play direct from that.
I had a Sony CDX-GT4104U in My Fiat coupe which was also very good, although I think the Alpine sounds slightly better, especially when playing MP3's.
You will realise how bad the original units sound quality is when you replace it, buying the Alpine was one of the best £110 I have spent.
You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall.
