Hmmm Alfa 147 car stereo steering wheel controls HELP!

Hi,

I currently have an Alfa 147 2002 and am thinking of changing my factory fitted stereo to a JVC KD-PDR51, as I would like to connect my ipod to my stereo. The only problem is that Halfords have told me that my steering wheel controls will not work as their supplier does not stock the cable from the steering wheel to this stereo for Alfa Romeo's .

Can anyone please tell me where I can purchase this cable if available and if not does anyone know which stereo could connect,

Cheers

Andy

hi i have changed my standard stereo 1st thing to do is not go to halfords at all they do not have a clue what they are doing i have experance in that

your steering wheel controls will not work with a different stereo because u need a seperate control thing which costs about 100 for that but go to a car stereo company Brian Car Sounds Security in surrey

i have an ipod in their as well and its been wired up and is in my glove box....

hope it helps

Mate you could just add the Dension link to the factory radio, unless sound quality is another reason why you're changing the head unit, of course.
