You did not specify what you are looking to upgrade ...

Replace head control unit? Add on a DVD player?

Replace speakers and add amp?

Your question is a wide open question... could have a thousand and one possible answers for it... it depends on what your end goal is for the upgrade.....

If you want to run spotify, simply add on carplay function, easily done at dealership

Anything is possible, if you have the mulah...

State and specify exactly what you are looking to upgrade on the current factory stereo and the forum folks can provide the intelligent feedback.

Mate I'm in the same boat, with mine. looking for the right components to upgrade the head unit for DAB.

I've been inside the software and I can switch it on but I'm missing the hardware. let us know if you do find anything!

Personally I don't know think people understand about digital radio sounding a lot cleaner than FM even when the signal isn't great it is a literal game changer.

If FM reception not great in the area, and that’s all you are looking to enhance reception of , then as suggested by Ans, go check out a stereo shop specializing in aftermarket upgrades. Like I said, if mulah is not an issue, anything is possible.
