I'm now returning the car's stereo/speakers to standard so my upgraded kit is now for sale. I researched loads for the right products for the GTV, so if any of you GTV owners are looking to upgrade the head unit and speakers, what I have will slot straight in.
Front speakers: Alpine SPR-13s component 2-way speakers
Rear speakers: Alpine SPR 17s coaxial 2-way speakers
Head unit: Alpine CDE 103BT
My upgrade was to improve sound quality and add iPhone/iPod funcionality: full bluetooth hands-free call handling plus the ability to play music off the iPhone/iPod via the cable incuded. The stereo works perfectly well without
connecting Apple products and will handle hands-free with other bluetooth-enabled phones, but this head unit is guaranteed to work with iPhones/iPods.
I also modified a spare ashtray to hold an iPhone – the cable runs to the base of the ashtray so the phone is held and plugged in in the ashtray. See here for info/pics:
Sound quality and volume has been greatly improved and the whole hands-free side of it has been awesome: call clarity at both ends has been very good and taking calls on the go is now both police-friendly and so much easier
All is in virtually new condition as it was only fitted in November. Brand new these items cost me £420 but as they are now nearly 3 months old feel free to PM me any serious offers, I might even throw in the modified ashtray
