    It not working at all, black screen, they told at the shops it was broken. everything works except the screen, and here in norway a new screen costs 750 pounds used, and i dont like the look of the old one, the new looks soo much better. but im not sure what to buy or where to get it.

    You need to get a pre dvd unit. They were installed on the 2003 year only afaik.
    This unit uses D2B fibre optic and can be used in your car with only minor modifications.
    You can easily identify it by the CD slot above the widescreen.

    The later DVD unit has a motorised screen with both tape deck and disc slot hidden when screen is in the centre. This later unit uses MOST and is not easily retrofitted to an earlier car like yours.
