    Been offered this unit at reasonably good price. As far as I know its non-canbus unit, does that meant that if I decide to upgrade steering wheel / cluster I won't be able to get info in the dash ?

    Regards

    Correct.

    You'll need a Canbus version to be able to do that at some point.

    And not even additional canbus box (whaterver they are called) would help ? Are there any other drawbacks, like not being able to hook up phone or tv tuner (well pretend one so I can connect dvd) ?

    You can hook up phone and TV tuner to a non-canbus COMAND, no problem.

    The canbus adapter won't help with the cluster stuff, AFAIK - it just enables the Canbus unit to stop switching itself off automatically in a non-canbus car.
