Replacement stereo unit with DAB receiver?

As per the subject line. Apologies if this has been asked before, but a forum search didn't pull anything up.

I'm looking to replace the stereo in my Mk2 Clio with something a bit flashier - the unit I have is, I think, the original and works well enough but doesn't do DAB I'm after a head unit that will do DAB and, if possible, play MP3 CDs - I don't own an iPod, so I don't care about iPod docks and the like.

My questions are:
  • Does anyone have any suggestions for a suitable replacement unit? I'm not that fussed about make, and price isn't really a major consideration but under 3 figures would be nice Not fussed about multi-CD capability either.
  • Are there any gotchas with regard to fitting the replacement unit? Is it a matter of just plugging the new one in, or is there more to it than that? I'm fairly knowledgeable with regard to electronics, but car audio is a closed book to me at present.
