I've searched and searched but I've struggled to find a definitive answer...

What do I need to upgrade the standard RCD210 radio in my T5gp to a single DIN kenwood?

Are these all the bits I need?

New stereo (obviously!)
Fascia Adaptor (I read that a MK6 Golf will fit?) - something like this? - http://www.incar-emporium.com/product_info.php?products_id=4935
Quadlock to ISO harness - like this? - http://www.incar-emporium.com/product_info.php?cPath=252_265_660&products_id=4807&TeKnoID=ccd1ca3da2ba2216014ccfe4f0e62841
A switched live from somewhere in the fusebox, as new stereo is not canbus compatable?

Would it be worth adding an antenna adaptor as well? The signal isn't the best at the moment...:*

When the van is more of a camper, I'll route another live from leisure battery through a switch on the dash.

Any other hints or tips?:confused:

Cheers

Yes you need the aerial adaptor
Sorry, I meant to say amplified antenna adaptor! :eek:

Does anyone know which fascia plate I need for the T5gp? Its not clear if the older T5 fascia is still the same as on the GP? or whether I need a mk5/6 gold fascia??

Will something like this adequately imitate the canbus to allow for lights and speed function from the stereo? - http://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/connects-ctsvw002-passat-golf-touran-polo-jetta-stalk-p-9117.html :* Not sure if it mimics the canbus?

Anyone got any thoughts?

Cheers!
