Fitting i40 radio into i30 (FD)
« August 22, 2019, 07:48:36 »
Hi all,

I've seen Hyundai i40 radios on eBay for reasonable prices (~50 to 80) and I was wondering would it be possible to retrofit the i40 radio into the i30 (FD)? I know physical dimensions won't fit naturally, but would the i30 be able to power the stereo?

As the prices are reasonable, I do like the OEM look of them; and some of them also have bluetooth which also makes it appealing. :-)

Thank you and kind regards.

 Good question.  :whistler:

Use angle grinder, drill, hammer and cold chisel. 

Two Answers - probably and eventually


but would the i30 be able to power the stereo?


Fairly sure the 12v battery is the same in both cars.  :phone1: :phone1: :phone1:   :goodjob2:
