Its a simple fit, my dealer did it before I collected the car. Much better to have it (for road use), I want to hear the open exhaust before 4500rpm.
I’ll let him know it’s an easy fit
Being fitted by the dealer before delivery £150
£150? It's about a 5 min job and a switch.
Exactly. Dealers should do it as a courtesy. Interested to know who is trying to charge £150.

Exactly! As the switch is around £60 (a rip off in itself), that’s £90 for 5 minutes work. £18 a minute, or £1080 an hour.

If anyone wants this done, I’ll happily do it for a 10% discount on the above rates. biggrin

Joking aside, if you’ve just spent a ton of money on the car I’d expect the dealer to fit it for free if you paid for the switch.

Today was stereo upgrade day. 
Very useful thanks. Hoping that sub will plug straight into the Clarion unit with no fuss.

Did you test the Focal's alone prior to adding the sub?
I'm wondering if it's worthwhile changing them. I'd like to keep cost to a minimum.

The standard Clarion unit has a few RCA outputs so the sub should plug straight in fine.

No, other than making sure that they were both working I didn’t really give them a good listening to I’m afraid.

We got a good deal on the car so I guess we had to let them win this one

I used the original ones, but looking at this:

https://www.deroure.com/diagrams.asp?TBL=12036&amp...

They are item 18, which is M5 x 25mm.

(It's quite a handy website for checking bolt sizes as well as looking for part numbers)

Cheers for that
