Summary: i needed a replacement stereo for my toyota Corolla the cars may be good but the factory fit units are very poor so after reading all the reviews i decided to go for the Alpine CDE-W235BT fitted by halfords Derby with no problems at all. what can I say the sound is amazing my phone a samsung galaxy ace worked straight away through the blue-tooth and it played all my old cds that i thought were practically wornout like they were new..
High quality, Bluetooth feature that you never realised you needed

Summary: Simplicity is the key to this stereo, yet with advanced iPhone streaming and phone features. I bought this with reservations, but in just a few seconds, I paired an iPhone 4S on iOS7, and an iPhone 5 with iOS 6 and used all BT features. If there's no response, just tap the Alpine icon on your list of BT gadgets to refresh.
Summary: Bought this unit to replace the Sony manufacturers stereo in my Focus ST. It took an hour to fit with the correct harness, it connected to my iphone 5 for hands free calling and also for music streaming...there was no downloading of firmware necessary! I cannot endorse this enough, the sound is crystal clear and the unit is very powerfull. It looks very nice as well!
