Excuse my ignorance, I am a newbie and didn't know this. Thank you for the information.
instead of dash kit its better to buy the dash console of active model
No I am not planning to sell it. It cost me about 18K one and a half years ago. Sound quality can match some of the more expensive ones. That's why I was interested in the FIAT interface so that I could maintain the steering controls and also the Blue&Me Bluetooth option.
even if not the blue and me , the bluetooth feature in 8016bt is far better. how was your experience about that in your old car ? did you use it extensively?
Eagerly awaiting the results bro.
Eagerly awaiting your results, can you share your experience on the connector/converter. Does it preserve all the functionalities of the steering control? Is the blue&me connected to your new head unit?
yes i did it. all steering controls work. just need to solder connectors to connect blue and me audio out to my head unit aux in.

How to upgrade the Fiat Linea Emotion Pk Head Unit
I am very new to the forum and have gone through the head unit upgrade done on the Punto with the lovely snaps as well.
Just need to check a few things more:
- After the head unit change do the steering controls continue to work
- I also want to install a couple of amps, subwoofer, etc., - need advice on the power on/ off wiring stuff
Please suggest. Help is sincerely appreciated.
I am planning to change the stock HU to something to suit my speaker/amp setup. I already put in the following components in the car but now convinced that I need to change the HU to get the best music out for the money I already spent. I think the HU is limiting the sound quality and 100% reproduction.
Vehicle Name: Punto 90 HP
Head Unit: OEM
Front Speakers: Rainbow DL C6.2
Rear Speakers: Morel 6.5" Coax
Monoblock: Rockford fosgate
Sub-woofer: Infinity Reference 12"
Wiring Kit: yes
Overall Budget= 53K
I love the steering controls and doesn't want to loose them, I don't care all that for blue & me if the HU offers better functionality.
What do you recommend?
@Binu, please feel free to check my post above(2posts above this) i have given all the details. I have retained the steering wheel controls even after changing the HU.
And you are right. whatsoever equipment you put in, you wont get satisfied unless u change the crappy oem HU
