Hi all
I'm back in the 406 fold after being away for 4 years.
I have just bought a2001 executive estate and want to put in a Bluetooth radio but don't know if the one I have will be ok with the jbl equipment.
Thanks in advance

Steve

Not sure, but I think you will have problems with the signal levels. I tried fitting a Parrot phone kit, but even with their recommended adapter, it wasn't possible to reduce the volume enough through the JBL amp. Since it was only for the phone, I just used a separate speaker.
