    I know it won't be to everyone's taste but it's 100% reversible when I sell in x years time and now I've got a modern system.

    My next issue is just how tinny the speakers are. Has anyone upgraded?

    Now if you could hook up a reversing camera, that would be worth looking at.

    Very keen to see photos of this and hear how you are getting on with it as I am thinking of doing the same.

    Sadly, they and I forgot to take install pics.It's fantastic, so responsive compared to Android Auto in my other cars and the screen size is a pleasure. My own issue now is the total lack of bass from the Ferrari speakers. I'm going back to see what they can cleanly do to improve that.

    Could you share a picture of the finished install at least? Keen to see what it looks like installed.

    Looks amazing. Thank you so much. Was it a difficult install inc the parking cameras?

    No, the company I used made very light of it, about half a day.

    How do you like it now that you’ve had it for a bit? I almost think a smaller screen would be preferable.

    You're right but I couldn't find any other options that'd fit. I love it, it's very responsive. I just need a little more bass. The standard speakers aren't great.

    I normally break out in hives when I see a non-standard install - but that looks great!!!

    Any pics of the screen retracted, please? And were they able to retain the carbon fibre flap that you can close over the stereo when not in use?

    And... I have the BOSE system in my car and never found it lacking - do you reckon I'll get the same sound from the Alpine you're using?

    Will look out for your 599 when I'm next in Brisvegas!

    I'm the same about mods, however, it's easily returned to factory standard upon me selling. It doesn't retract, the angle of the dash prevents any of the retractable ones from fitting.
