Any after-market car entertainment system will probaly differ from the original and you are most likely to loose the head-up display although adapters can be found for many for connecting the steering column stalk controls.
The stalk controls are a 'nice to have' for me - I find their placement a bit odd and often find myself having to fumble about for the volume or CD track controls, and have inadvertently put the windscreen wipers on by mistake on any number of occasions Anyway, changing CDs etc. is what passengers are for
