    Hi just a quick question how many of you guys have seen these head units floating around on eBay?

    They're going for around £100-£200 and are fully Android Auto and Apple car play enabled. They actually look rather good for the price.

    Does anyone know if they would fit into a 2010 leon FR without the hassle of buying extra wiring fascia etc which would be required for an aftermarket as I was looking at the Kenwood 7017dabs but this unit looks to have the same functionality with a more oem look.

    Thanks in advance for any replies

    From what I can see these units are factory oem and being VAG surely they would be the same fitment as any other oem unit. If anyone could shed any light on the cable fitment as well that would be great i.e any extra cabling required, steering control (would they work) etc.

    Hi guys,

    I have ordered 1 of these units myself, hopefully here this week..

    I have a 2010 FL FR, from what ive been told they are a straight swap.

    You need a fascia if you are running the std single din factory stereo, l have ordered this from Coverdalevagparts, £40 inclinding all screws and clips...

    You will retain your steering wheel controls also, which was a massive plus for me...

    Hope that helps

    Brendan

    Hi Brendan

    Let us know how that goes I have the factory standard double din which is absolute s**t!

    Little disappointed there would still be no DAB but I mostly use Spotify anyway.

    Cheers

    Awesome can't wait to see how that turns out think I'll be ordering one myself.

    Do you know anything about the splash screen and changing that to seat or the FR logo as opposed to VW or Skoda?

    Hi Brendan

    Something you may like to try after installing your new radio is if the built in usb port is still functional and works for the android auto/Apple car play.

    Definitely gonna order one just don't fancy the dangling usb cable if it can be helped.
