Found it!

Car looks nice and clean mate, really well looked after (ding aside) but repaired to high quality.

Any plans for it?

Just use it to be honest.
Need to change the brake fluid soon and also replace the boots - nothing else!

Decided to keep it - over the next few months the plan is to upgrade the stereo (completed this week), get the wheels refurbed, hit it with a lowering stick and if I have any money left, get the engine to produce more power

A few pics of the new stereo:










The unit is brilliant - running Android (version 8) with octocore processor, 4Gb of Ram and 32Gb of Rom.
Works very well and with the Bose system sounds so much better than the original head unit

Yeah would love to do similar with my D2 but not sure how easy it would be, only things I miss on it really are DAB radio and the ability to stream music via bluetooth..but also want to keep it looking close to oem as well

Bluetooth is dead easy, loads of adaptors for the RNS. I've got an Xcarlink but there are other solutions.

I had the Xcarlink in the TT but the Bluetooth was pretty rubbish (OK for phone but for audio I found very lacking)

It's an EONON unit (GA2170).
Regards the RNS/D2 situation - their are loads of head units that will replace the installed unit and give you all the modern stuff - I know people on the TT forum have installed Android (and other) units and got them to work properly.

I have a similar offering from Connects2, without the Bluetooth option, and it works well with SD card or USB stick, but plugging phone into line in jack results in a very muffled, distorted sound. Got a Parrot kit for phone

Strange, I find it very good, even for classical music. And my S8 doesn't even have Bose!
