Warning about second hand radios

I recently bought a second hand radio for my 04 plate Scenic off ebay .
It was an 'update list' model which appeared to be the correct model for my car, correct aperture size, correct pin connector layout etc.
The only problem was when I connected the wiring there was no display on the dash. I took it into my local dealer in Rugby, who where very helpfull, asking them if they could try another radio to check if the problem was with the radio or the dash display.
When I went to collect half an hour later I was advised it was in fact the wrong model. Even though to all intent & purposes it look to be the right one it has to be one of two specific part numbers. The one I had bought was for an 05 plate Clio.
I have now found another one of ebay with the correct part number which is arriving shortly.
So this is just a warning when buying second hand radios. Ensure it has the correct part number!
