Hello all,

Our household has recently had the pleasure of accepting a 2009 Abarth 500 into the family. The car is kitted out with the moderately useless Blue&Me bluetooth handsfree and the Interscope sound system.

I want to put a double DIN unit in it to cover A2DP and all that sort of stuff. Having come from German cars with DSP and all that guff, is there anything I need to watch out for with the Abarth, or will any aftermarket head unit work with the Interscope system? Same goes for the B&M.. is there anything to watch out for to ensure compatibility?

Thanks
Dan.

Thanks Darko.

That's the sort of thing I was thinking about, if not from one of the main vendors and with a double-DIN conversion kit. The main concern I have is keeping anything intact, like DSP (if the Interscope uses that) that needs to be kept intact.
