Also, there are two plastic blocks either side of the binnacle that I had to file off to get the new radio to fit, but these will become apparent if anyone else has the same problem

And there was me planning to add a small subwoofer sometime in the future, you can't even get a paper clip behind the unit let alone a phono plug!

The sound is a lot better now though and I would definately recommend to anyone thinking of upgrading their head unit
I had the unit out also for upgrading to subs, but could not get a phono on.

You can get phono plugs from maplins. I am thinking it might work if you remove the plastic bits, then make a shorter plug.
