So I ordered my bluepower stereo 5 weeks ago & it's turned up a month early which is nice. The fitting looks a bit more involved than expected so will have to set aside a full day so I can take my time & do it right. Quality looks excellent & has a very comprehensive fitting instructions.

I was looking at them for a while contemplating the price, but in the end I gave in & got it. Get this fitted then maybe get air ride later this year & car will be nearly finished

To me if it works well enough, the price won't be an issue - it's still cheaper than buying another newer car with a newer, more 2010+ friendly audio system.

Very true, I've done a fair bit of work to my car so I decided it was worth it as I hate having a sat nav suctioned on the windscreen & no Bluetooth so fingers crossed it's all I hoped for.

I've been interested in this. How much did you buy it for? Goodluck with the install.

Hi, it cost me £440 GBP Inc shipping. I haven't done much with installs before so I might go to my friends engineering shop to have some help.

Im interested to see this too. I hope they do well but this is a pricey option. I would have done it too but didnt want to wait on shipping/production.

Is there a way to update the navigation? My chinandroid headunit uses google maps. I was concerned about the Bluepower being supported for more than a couple years.

It's apparently loaded with all the latest maps when it's sent out & all updates when available are available for free through there website. I saw your stereo you fitted it looks ace I just didn't want to cut the waterfall dash & I'm not very confident with wiring etc, I've also just brought a carbon fibre skinning kit this is real carbon fibre sheet so hopefully going to carbon my floating dash & some other bits on the car.

Nice. So ongoing support is planned. That's good to hear. Cant wait to see this installed. Hopefully it will show aftermarket companies that there is a strong niche market for these cars.

Yeah there's a section on there website which says about ongoing support & updates which is free download. So updating sat nav when needed will be nice.

This is what it says on there website

BLP-990 software can be upgraded. New versions are periodically released. And the best part: they are available FREE OF CHARGE. The BLP-990 system bought is pre-loaded with the very latest system firmware available at the time of purchase.
