    Help !! Ex police car v70 missing stereo 12 plate

    Hi Everyone

    Ive just bought a v70 on a 12 plate - ex metropolitan police car and the stereo has been stripped out

    so - a couple of questions

    can an aftermarket stereo be fitted ? and if so who can do it?

    can a second hand volvo v70 radio cd head unit work or have the volvo tech heads put a block on that ?

    ive been quoted 650 by volvo for new head unit and that's just a bit too tasty for my liking

    any feedback or suggestions appreciated greatly

    Interesting first post.....btw, Head on over to the 'Introduction' section and say hello!

    As it's a P3 car, the HU (Head Unit) is a module in it's own right, so you can't just chuck a Volvo HU in and switch it on. It'll need software from Volvo to make it work.

    Most aftermarket units look nasty in a Volvo dash and they often don't work with the AMPS etc, so I'd stick with OE for the best sound.

    A second hand unit will work but it will still require software.
