Seeing if I can revive this section...
Just gauging if anybody's still about in the North West.
I'm based in Liverpool and work in Warrington.
Could be cool to go to local meets/shows, or just at least be aware of each other.

Aftermarket? I'm using an adapter like this (on a Kenwood DAB head unit)...
