1999 Bentley Arnage/Seraph Radio Upgrade

Anyone know what is the best and easiest radio to fit my 1999 Arnage?
I just want a Bluetooth for my phone, and maybe something easy to hook into steering wheel controls and CD player.

Thanks for the idea....
but an adviser there told me they had nothing for the 1999 Arnage, no radio wiring interfaces, or dash kits.
They said best bet is to get a custom installation, so back to square one.

Anyone changed their Bentley Arnage radio on here?

After 1996 most car and radio manufacturers adopted a uniform wiring code. I can't say for certain if RR/B followed that, but the head unit does. All modern head units require a floating common for the speakers due to new output circuitry architecture. Before this speaker grounds and radio grounds were the same. I would find a wiring diagram for the head unit and that will allow you to interface a new unit.
A very competent installer will be able to figure this out. Stay away from kids..they will destroy the car.

I used to have an Arnage and the head unit was a Grundig system and not very good.My local techie got some adapter which meant I could plug in an iPod which worked in the place of the CD player. I updated the SatNav to an Alpine NVE M300p which could update over the internet for 50 a time.

I also had a BMW 635 CSI and I swapped the pioneer radio for a Clarion NZ502E single din 7 inch . I do not know if it would fit an Arnage but it had everything Radio, CD, iPod, Bluetooth, phone etc.
