Hi, you guys steered me through upgrading my radio and getting right connections few years back. Now I have a new c3 and I thought it would be an easy swap, but the connections seem different. I will post pics below, but basically I have the kit to fit aftermarket stereo with subwoofer (with steering stalk adapter) to my old c3 but the set does not seem compatible with the new car?

Please take a look and link what I should get? Thanks!

Hi




Old C3 stereo is ISO connectors and the new C3 is fakra/Quadlock. You need a sort of ISO to Fakra connector to make them fit.

Thanks, I got the fakra to din for the aerial. If I got this, could it slot I to what I already have? Would the steering connector work?

Yes, that looks good

Would the steering connector work?
Possibly not, I don't know if the connects2 you have is going to work. You need to contact connects2 for that sort of information or just try it and then investigate if it doesn't work.
