    Fitted an Alpine DAB head unit in my 200 just two weeks after buying it.

    Installed locally, with a small DAB aerial stuck on the inside of the windscreen.

    The CDE alpine is slightly dearer than they one Goodj linked because it has a cd player. If you don't use cds go for the other one, it's shorter so will be easier to stuff all the wires in behind it and the savings can go towards a link cable so you can use the cars oem steering radio controls and display.

    Probably should mention that it has full Bluetooth hands free capabilities.

    Does it have that thing that makes the volume go up and down when your speed/noise increases?

    Unfortunately not. It's possible to set up with the steering wheel controls, it may offer this as a result from what I am told.

    One that goes up and down of its own accord, sometimes at the most inappropriate moment. I thought we all had one of those

    It'll be linked to a speed sensor that wouldn't be part of the usual ISO loom.

    But that stereo doesn't appear to support it anyway

    I'll be going for this when I get back in a Clio, it's DAB and Bluetooth as you can so will be perfect with the new laws that come in.

    I've just fitted a kenwood dab to the other halfs car. It's a really good unit however the BT connectivity can be a bit hit and miss with it

    I paired more than one phone and it's forgotten both of them. I'll need to mess about with it more. Apart from that it's superb. I went for the cd one 700dab. Got it for £118 delivered which was the cheapest I could find

    does it lose any other settings? Just in case its a problem with positive and switched-power inputs.

    Nah man it's really good apart from that. I've maybe messed with the settings too much. Install is fairly straight forward too. Depends how easy your A pillars come off! Only thing I don't like is that you can't change the colour of the text/buttons to match your dash but it still looks good
