Its easy to change a headunit in a 147, all you need is some removal keys (read wire coat hanger) and any new cd player, and a facia adapterneonj said:Hi,
Has anyone managed to successfuly change the standard cd headunit in the 147 to a unit that can play mp3/wma files? Also, does it still interact with the Selespeed steering controls (mute, volume) etc.
What makes/models work?
If you pass an extra wire from the opening at the edge of the side trim, under the rear seat, towards the area under the black plastic cover at the doorstep, tape the cd-changer's wires on it, and pull the wire back, its a piece of cakeJono said:the hardest part is routing the changer cables past the B-pillar!
Any ideas about the spec's of the Blaupunkt MP3 unit ?Petrakis Dimitris said:Jomor, I saw in the Greek Alfa Romeo Site that the cost of the Blaupunkt MP3 as an option for a new GT is 400 euros (with a Subwoofer included) so I suppose that the unit itself must cost around 300-350 euros.
I had the opportunity to test drive a GT ( Great car! I liked it a lot!) and test the sound system as well with an MP3 CD. The quality was the same as with the standard BOSE system in my Alfa... So as soon as the dealer starts to import MP3 Units seperately I will get my own.
Hope I helped...
Hi there RIOT,RIOT said:This is an old thread from before leads were available.
You can now get them for blaupunkts and Alpines but ive not heard of one for the Pioneer Headunit you mention above...
They all work in the same way as the one you mention, i.e. keep the wheel controls but loose the dash display
You should be able to say who makes the converter cable on here and I would be interested to find it out for myself as the Pioneer is supposed to be a superb headunit !!

the leads i've got for the Pioneer ...77MP are made by IncarTec, they can be contacted on www.InCarTec.co.uk. It's a two part connector, the main lead is part number 29-655 and the smaller lead, for the steering controls is part number 29-007. They apparently will do for the 147, 2002 onwards and the 156 (sorry don't know what year).
I have the leads but am awaiting delivery of the Pioneer, so will let you know how well they work.
All the best, Percy.
