    I was waiting for how you would solve the stock-display "problem".

    I haveto say, that was a very very nice solution.

    MOST-connectors

    Did you have to specially order those cables and connector at your dealer.
    We have a kit to make our own and have bags of connectors with it

    I got the cables at an audio shop (toslink)

    Then i had to order the conectors and stuff from the dealer. They didnęt have any so it took 3 days. (Came from Spain)

    Nice work

    Wow, looks great. I have a 2006 US S40. In your experience removing the HU, do you think it would be possible to replace it with an Avic Z1? Is there enough room back there?

    Probably there is enough space. In any case the stock screen must me always connected or the car wont start/work. The stock cdplayer you can ditch it, but everytime you go to the dealer the car will present tons of error codes
