bummer - that head unit is quite pricey here in the us anyways, so i'm thinking of going with the sony cdx-m850mp instead. i'm tempted to just leave the stock head unit in though -- would the sound quality be quite a bit better with aftermarket? probably going to have a couple 10" subs running off my xtant x1001 amp and some boston acoustic components up front running of a quality 2 channel amp... will the HU make a noticeable difference, or could i get away with just staying stock?

thanks mike,
Wes

A new HU will make a big difference. For a start you can use RCA's into your amps (better sound quality) and they generally have better functionality than a standard HU. Also RCA's make running multiple amps easier, they are also less succeptible to noise induction from power cables etc.

Any ideas on a Blaupunkt Woodstock? I fancy the DAB but having specified MFSW I don't want to lose function (Car delivers next Monday! Can't wait!)

According to Blaupkunt technical help, they should have a MFSW adaptor out very soon. Designed to work with the Woodstock.

Happy Hippo, Thanks for the info. Only just read it as I have been too busy playing with the new 'baby' born on the 1st! Another Cooper hits the road!

South Africa MFSW adapters in South Africa

Got my Cooper S for 5 months now, and have just upgraded the sound system (Audison SRX + Hertz HS165 Splits & Hertz Sub). It sounds wicked, but I feel its time to upgrade the Head Unit.

One problem though, can't seem to find the MFSW adapter in South Africa. Anyone willing to ship one out here or know where I can get one, obviously shipping to be included in the purchase price?

Hi Mike,

Not to particular about the HU, was just hoping to get my hands on an adapter first and then make up my mind based on whats available. I take it there is only one kind of adapter?

How can I contact you about shipping one out here?

Hi, the plug and play adaptors are specific to each make of radio.
I do have a universal one but it requires a wire cut in the car and an led mounting. You would be better to pick a radio first
You can e mail me on newministuff@aol.com ring me on (0)1704 878528 or see my site, www.newministuff.co.uk

You will no longer need the harness adaptor but you will need the aerial & facia adaptors
WHere are you and do you have the Wave or Boost?

This will fit all pioneer units that have IR remote facility.
