new mini owner 3rd time around

Hi just bought myself another Mini Cooper S a 2005 05 plate this is my third Cooper S but have not owned one since 2004 previous 2 were an 02 and a 54 plate so have a few wee queries with regards the car as the previous 2 were from new,so this is my first pre owned one. just signed up so probably should be asking these questions else where.

The previous owner has fitted an aftermarket stereo which now doesnt work from the steering wheel controls and the sat Nav doesnt seem to prompt the sound either. Im assuming if i removed this and bought a standard head unit this would resolve this ?

Also can sumone explaine how the remote boot lock option is supposed to work again as im not sure its working quite right either. When the car is locked and you hold the button down the indicators seem to flash and you can open the boot by touching the button on the tailgate when the car is still locked but thought it would have actually popped open ? when the car is open and you hold the button down doesnt seem to pop open either ?

Apart from that its a great wee car feels very go Kart like which i remember from the past hence why i decided to get another and seems pretty quick even now.

Thanks in advance
