      ice replacement for polo 1.6

      Hi I am from Patna have booked a VW polo 1.6 and expect to take delivery in 10-15 days, god willing and although it comes with an ICE, it is pretty basic and I would like to replace it with a better model. I have zeroed in on Pioneer 3350 BT which is available here for around 20k . Should i leave the stock speakers in and just replace the HU or should i change the speakers as well. In % terms how much would be the Sund Quality difference. More than the cost of the speaker, I am worried about the wiring job voiding the warranty on the car. Budget is around 30k including the HU.

      The VW guys at Bangalore "promised" to void the warranty if I change anything in the car...in fact, they told me they would do that even if I change the tyres!!!!!

      Please check with your dealer if they also "promise" the same thing
      Lots of cars have one part that needs to be recalled: The nut behind the wheel !!!

      so once the tires wear out you need to buy the same model from someone else or only from the showroom??

      There will be quite a bit of difference in SQ if you change the speakers and damp the front doors well. There are wiring harnesses available so you don't have to cut anything. Buy component speakers for the front for 6-7K. Infinity, MTX, Helix, Bull etc have some good speakers in that price range. Spend another 3-4K on wiring and damping. Don't worry too much about the warranty bit. If a company wants to, they can void the warranty on the flimsiest of grounds but they hardly ever do in order to maintain the relationship and goodwill. Make friends with the SAs at the service centers and you'll be okay. VW. the company, won't even know you have an aftermarket ICE installed.
      I don't know what's gonna happen man but I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames

      hi sjjw, as gilead said don t worry about the warranty ,but make sure u get the install done with a trained guy , insist that he dis connect the battery leads before working on the car ,coz vw ecu has all active sensors ,at the same time if the company guys are gonna fit a hu they are also gonna do the same wiring so whats the talk of warranty ,u will enjoy music in ur polo u don t even need damping the doors are good
