    Help with stolen facia

    Hope someone can help me.

    I have a Sony CDX-5000R cd player and the facia was recently stolen. It's only a couple of years old and works absolutely fine. I've phoned Sony Spares and they've told me a replacement will be 120.

    Does anyone know of anyway of getting a cheaper replacement facia? The player only originally cost 180 so is it going to be better just to buy a new player? If so, can anyone recommend a decent player for 150-200?

    Cheers for you help.

    Have you tried ebay???Just looked for a pic of it and it looks quite nice so might not be one on there but is worth looking. How comes they only took the fascia?

    the sony MP40 is only 125 from www.cel-direct.com and www.mcs-direct.co.uk and it plays mp3 aswell, and it has a remote control, and has amp outputs, cd changer input, cd text, 4 x 50W. nice bit of kit for the money.

    fascia prices are high to deter theft of head units so most times it is nearly as cheap to get a whole new item

    A: Did ur head-unit come with any like-for-like replacement guarantee if so they may want a crime number from the police b4 a replacement is sent.

    B: Is ur car coverd comp. could claim for a stolen head- unit but you maybe payin for it in higher premiums lost NCB etc. etc.

    if these fail i'd recommend the MP40 as a replacement too, i had one fitted to mine b4 i sold it and is v. v. gd value for the features u get!
    1380 or 1293 turbo
    Drive a BMW? i'd rather Push My Mini!

    Blaupunt are the only ppl making coding fascia's at the moment, the rest swop over fine.

    This comes highly recommended by myself as ive fitted a quite a few now. MP3/Ipod controller and aux input aswell as the usual spec.
