United-Kingdom Aftermarket Stereo in 2007 Cooper S

Hi Guys

I know there are loads of post about this all over the net but it does seem like they are all from 5+ years ago, so here we go again...

I want to fit an aftermarket stereo to a 2007 Cooper S (R56) and know that people have had all sorts of issues with the central speedo etc.

I've heard of moving the OEM to another part of the car to keep the functionality, I've heard of leaving it in place and hiding a new radio in the passenger dash, and I've heard of just forgetting it and sticking an amp on the OEM.

I have just seen this on eBay...

http : // www ebay co uk/itm/BMW-Mini-R56-Double-Din-Car-Stereo-Kit-Steering-Wheel-Stalk-Interface-Adaptor-/400725058303?pt=UK_In_Car_Technology&hash=item5d4d 1322ff]BMW]BMW]BMW Mini R56 Double Din Car Stereo Kit & Steering Wheel Stalk Interface Adaptor | eBay[/url] Mini R56 Double Din Car Stereo Kit & Steering Wheel Stalk Interface Adaptor | eBay[/url] Mini R56 Double Din Car Stereo Kit & Steering Wheel Stalk Interface Adaptor | eBay

Will this allow me to get rid of the old OEM and retain all of the speedo functionality?

If not has there been any other good ideas over the last few years on how to sort out this audio nightmare?

Thanks for your time guys!

You will still have the dilema of losing functionality or finding somewhere for the OEM parts to reside. Most of us who like to change our OEM stereo's to something new have gone the new amp and speakers route with the original speaker wires as the input. There are also plenty of processors to help as this is now a common problem with modern cars.

Some people are like a Slinky ........ not really good for anything, but you still can't help
but smile when you shove them down the stairs
