Couldn't come to an agreement with the Insurers. Sadly, no car no parts to part out. Sorry guys. Seems such a waste. I'm sure the wrecker will sell the parts. Unfortunately I don't know which one.

You sure you don't need the alternative wiring loom too? I did when I installed the AVIN HU in mine. Don't quite understand why. Lost interest when it was being described to me.
