Hi all.

Just picked up a 2012 C3 today and was wondering if anyone's had any experience with swapping out the stereo for a 1 or 2 din head unit that has the Cd/dvd/gps all in one setuple.

I've noticed that the stereo is very low in the centre console. Has anyone put a 1 din head unit with double din flip up screen into one?

I have seen pics online of new fascia units that can be put in that move the HVAC stuff lower than the stereo which look great... but for the life of me I can't find one anywhere to buy.

Lastly if anyone knows if there's a dash top unit that can be installed (unit in the stereo opening but 5-7" screen on the dashboard) ID love to know.

Cheers.

You can't buy it from what I could see, which is a great shame because its such a great idea for a mod.
