Hi im new to the forum!
Im buyin an x2000 plate bravo hgt and will replace to stereo with the one i have (pioneerDEH-P9600MP) http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/product_detail.jsp?product_id=7548&taxonomy_id=25-121
it has the front panel move down to show a hidden screen. Will this be possible to fit with the available after market facia adaptor, as it looks like it can be a tight squeeze? Dont fancy buying a new stereo?

Thanks in advance

Hello and welcome :) How are you enjoying the new car? It depends on the angle the front drops down at, there is a flat bit of the fascia just before the headunit so if the front drops down more than a few mm below the bottom of the HU then it probably won't. I think there are a couple of different ones on the market though so you never know your luck :)

Was looking at that unit, how easy is it to connect for the bluetooth to work?
Think ill sell the one i have (any takers) as im told it wont fit.
Might move towards Alpine. It wouldnt fit the last car either (mr2 turbo), so i opted for custom made dash.
Has anyone custom made there own facia for a flip stereo to fit a bravo?
Not sure i should buy the car now ;)

How about an Alpine CDA-9855R, will this fit, apparantly has a Swingface feature (whatever that is). Does anyone have an Alpine in a bravo.

Anyway, this is the first fiat that ill own and the first itallian one too.
Im used to jap cars or at mo a ford. Im buying the car from someone we know, and im wondering what kind of price i should be looking at to buy the Bravo. Its an 2000 x plate done 36k miles in yellow (not that thatll matter), all standard, all hist keys, offered to sell to me for 2 grand. i thought that is pretty good, but again not sure on prices of fiats, is it good?

Thanks for all you help!

I would say that was about its money for its age and mileage, i wouldnt pay much over 2k, but if its not had a service in a while i would use that to get 100 quid off, but your certainly not getting ripped off at that price :)

Does anyone know what size speakers are fitted in the front and rear of a bravo, and are the fronts componants? Will i need adaptors?
