You're more than welcome

Interfaces will usually be supplied by the head unit manufacturer. So (for example) if you're interested in an Alpine unit, you'll need to see if Alpine do an interface for that unit for your car.

Phase 1 is the original Laguna II - it has a flap that covers the front of the stereo, and the stereo is a standard DIN-E unit with conventional wiring. The Phase II was introduced in 2005 and has the Megane II style front. There's a compartment that closes above the stereo (that hides either the sat-nav DVD drive or a cubby hole) but the stereo is flush with the dash and always visible. Some of the phase II models have a 6 disc in-dash changer (some with MP3 capability) and the ISO (standard stereo) connectors are actually in the back of the glove compartment. The power feeds on these ISO's are non-standard too (I tried to wire up a TomTom docking kit to them.) The Phase 2 stereo wiring is a nightmare, so you're lucky to have a Phase 1
