Hello cicabimbo

If the radio you fit has a remote input and you fit the correct adaptor then yes, you can use the stalk controls.

Also if you have a trip computer (mpg etc) you will need the adaptor to keep these functions when you take the factory radio out.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence and pretend you never tried :lol:

have a look at this one from Amazon.co.uk for something suitable. It for a Kenwood, but it gives you an idea what sort of thing to look for that matches the aftermarket stereo you have purchased or are considering.

This link is a bit more focused on the Netherlands ebay stalk adaptors C3.
