I'm sure this must have been spoken about before but I went down to get a quote for this unit to be fitted and they told me £2,400!!!! This is with the iPod and reversing camera and all fitted but has anyone else had a quote for this DHU as the internet price is around £1,700 and I think my local Car Audio centre is extracting it a bit!

wow that is alot to install it, 700 notes are the joking. I guess they just saw your car and heard what unit you want and thought of the £££, so took the piss thinking you would just pay it :(.

Car Solutions in Welwyn. He said that the unit needed a special calibrator to calculate the speed from the engine which was 200 notes, and with the iPod and Camera adaptor the whole thing would come to 2,400. Just wanted to know if anyone else had heard what they cost. I am going to phone around next week to get some alternatives just couldn't belive it when he wanted. I was expecting 2k tops fully installed. So my .:R didn't get its Christmas Present :~(

Thanks for that, seems more reasonable and what I was expecting. Look a good unit and have a great write up - Anyone used one?

the Mk5 uses can bus for the speed pulse, so a can bus adaptor is needed, altough the unit will work without.

We are only 5 miles from welwyn!! and can do the unit all in fitted for £1650 without the can bus or £1700 with!!!

Give us a call or PM
