Hi all,

Bad news last night, wife went into town and parked up, came back later and some ****ty feckers had smashed the passenger window and ripped off half the stereo surround trying to get the stereo out (which they didn't actually get out, so they took the front panel on its own...) left some nice big gouges in the dash as well.:annoyed::furious::rant:

Any ideas where I can get this panel, its the one that surrounds stereo, A/C and gear lever..

Also any recommendations on a new stereo head unit???

Thanks for your help

Sorry to hear this :(

Quite a few people on here recently bought carbon look surrounds, so its possible you may get one that's spare. Alternatively, you could order one from Japan (via Perfectrun)

Part Number:68260-85F00-
Description:LID-CLUSTER

Another source would be a breaker via PPS on SXOC.

I'd be more concerned about how easily you'll get a replacement window glass...

I know, that was my initial concern, however the insurance company are dealing with National windscreens. The guy called me and is supposed to be getting back to me with how long/whether they can get it. So we'll see how they do...

The whole thing infuriates me, all for nothing as they didn't take anything...

I have a spair surround sitting in my garage, it has a small mark on 1 side which could be fixed nothing too bad. I am in Auss but don't mind posting it if you have no luck. ;)

I recently sent a centre consul to another member in the UK, it got there safetly :):)

Sorry to hear that.

When you have your window replaced check to make sure the window open and closes properly. When my FTO was done they bodged guides to get the new window in and also left glass sitting in the bottom of the door which makes a horrible noise when opening and closing :mad:

It probably did go off, and that's why they didn't get anything because they were in a rush! I recommend you get a proximity sensor added, it gives off a small warning when people get too close. I had one on another car and actually saw it work on a number of occasions.
