Aston Martin AUX input V8 Vantage 2007 plate
Our client had a simple brief to install an AUX in his Aston Martin V8 Vantage. The install was anything but simple! The goods were supplied from world renowned NAV TV who supply the leading car audio companies with fibre optic MOST products. The key behind this install was to dismantle the handcrafted dashboard to get to the Fibre optic MOST input and plug our AUX box in-line. Once we had that done, it was a case of finding suitable power.
The installation took just over 3 hours to do. The result is a tidy set of aux leads in the glove compartment and a manual switch installed in the cigarette compartment.
This audio installation was completed in the Lancashire region.
