hi,

I'm very impressed with the pics and the install.  I'm a new owner of a Mk5 GTI and would love to fit a bluetooth nokia car kit.  However I think its one step above my skill level, since fitting the new electric window winders on my mk4 drove me nuts.

so my question is, can anyone recommend an installer in west london, that is reasonably priced?

many thanks

Paul

I used Sextons in battersea on my Smart Roadster, they'll get my GTi once it turns up for an Alpine nav unit, plus bluetooth car kit....

Certainly happy with their service.

I took davidfsmith's advice and went to Sexton's in Wandsworth and had a Parott Ck3100 kit fitted.  I was very pleased with the service and the fact the dash is completely unmarked from the install.
The Parott kit sounds good and people tell me that the quality is good their end.  I took the advice from one of the threads on here that said not to have the mic by the A post airbag, so I had fixed in the centre by the map lights, which is also handy if the passenger wants to talk.
I'm not 100% sold on the position, but theres nowhere else to put it, apart from sightly higher, just have to see how my passengers find it and if they think its in the way getting in and out.

I agree - it's an odd place to put it  :huh:

Where OlliBlue has his - just below the hazard button ( see page 3 of this item for a pic ) or on the top of the air vent above your light switch.

the guy at the fitting place said "theres nowhere for the wire to go" and there obviously is, but, ollieblue says it bends the plastic!  maybe the wire can be replaced with a flat version?

The guy is wrong - you can place the screen close to the "A" pillar on the driver side and feed the wire down the side of the dash as per the mic on the car phone kit - he is being lazy dude - the place he has fitted it is by far the easiest - make him move it - if YOUR not happy!

ok thanks Doc.

I like the idea of having it in the middle, above the radio, but not if it bends the plastic in the process, as per ollieblue.
