Please forgive my ignorance...when you refer to the 'gearbox', are you speaking of the automatic transmission (CVT) or a manually operated transmission? I'm assuming the auto CVT.
I'd assume the CVT, that's all we got over here.

Yeah, from what I read it's Auto only, plus, on the many times I've looked, I've never seen a Manual for sale.

Apologies, I didn't get a notification to say anyone had replied. Looks like you're the only other person then Evanzo7. Good to see there's another Kizashi in Scotland. I've owned 2. A 63 plate in black (with the black privacy glass and a fresh coat of wax that car looked epic) bought from my local dealership in Wales when the 500 first got imported into the country (written off by a taxi driver while looking at his phone in Dundee :cry: ) and bought a silver 61 plate just before lockdown. Love the car and love the attention it gets.

I joined to find out if anyone had any information on swapping out the head unit for an aftermarket one. I like the way the standard system sounds but I do lot of hires music streaming and the Bluetooth isn't up to the job. If I swapped the head unit would I have to waste money upgrading the speaker system or is that fine the way it is? If there was a 3.5mm audio jack I wouldn't necessarily need to use BT but I'm guessing adding one in would be a bigger job than swapping the head unit.

That's alright, I don't have notifications turned on myself for most posts.
Yeah I've seen a couple in Scotland but not an awful lot, I know of a white one around the Braehead area in Glasgow, there used to be a silver one in Barrhead when I stayed there but they sold it for a Vitara not long before I moved.
Shame to hear about your black one :cry:

I couldn't tell you I'm afraid, not something I've ever played about with or looked into!
