    but I don't know if it will/have some problem with the compatibility issue with my car,since my car is quite old(12/13 years)
    if anyone here can guide me here.

    What issues would a 12 year old car have that a new car wouldn't? :confused"
    It's a 12v electrical system, and that's really all that matters.

    Make certain your alternator and battery are good, though.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    i've done it with a 1986 charade g11 gtti .. no problem .. all stuff are running in the same voltage .. so no problem at all ..

    daihatsu stock alternator are around 30amps .. better change to a bigger output alternator . i upgraded mine to 70amps and another battery at the rear so i can play audio offline (while the engine is off ) for a few hours .. no problem at all ..

    p/s: enjoy your stay here !
    First 3 Version DONE ...but sold ..with the car .. now .. building another one for the new car .

    The only compatibility issue I can see is not having a single or double DIN slot in your dash. Which means custom fabrication for your screen in your dash. I don't know when DIN became standard, but I remember my dad had an 80's Peugeot 306 that had the most mutant radio I'd ever seen.
