“the more I use it the more I appreciate how good it is”


“The work that has gone into both type1 and 2 are extensive. Having the type1, the integration with the stereo and the allowances for the installed car kit just simply operates as it is part of the standard factory system. Well done Vlad, You have a winner here!!!”


“I really think anyone out there that still has the factory HU should cough up the cash and get it installed as it's a great addition to the vehicle!”


“What a simple install. Thanks heaps Vlad, the DIY kit you sent works a treat... and took bugger all time to mod (-:”


“I personally think this is the best integration of any kit out there. I guess I simply see a hobby project that has great potential.”


“Well I thought I'd let you know that the type1 in my system is working a treat. Such a simple install and all is working well.”


“Job well done mate and thanks heaps for taking the time to work it all out :) This is one happy camper as I refuse to buy one of those fm transmitter things so the iPod just sat on the coffee table.”


“My impressions? Well I certainly don't think I got ripped off, I'm extremely happy with the implemented board to my factory stereo.”


“I find it to be simply brilliant and I use and abuse it. Well done mate, you’re a hidden talent.”


“So in ending I would like to thank you for such a wonderful device... I also would like for you to note that as I'm genuinely satisfied with your on going support, not hesitating to help attitude and of course for making a home project for your son’s radio a gift to many others.”


“The interface has worked well thanks. Your instructions were very concise and it made the job quite straight forward.”


“Thanks again for all the work that you have put into this. I can now get rid of the FM modulator I was previously using.… I appreciate your efforts.”


“I have had the unit in the car for about 2 weeks now. It has been excellent so far, have had no problems with it what so ever. It is the wife’s car so I don’t get to use it all the time however she has commented that it has been trouble free and easy to use. Great job and thanks.”


“I installed this in my GTO yesterday. It is unbelievably cool! I absolutely love it!”


“The level of integration is astonishing. I am not sure Holden could have done better unless they replaced the lousy segmented LCD screen. You would swear it was built into the radio. The kit is REALLY well done.”

“Installation was a breeze mate! Although I had to rewire just about everything in my loom to get it back to stock WOW!! fantastic kit you have produced Vlad, you’re a genius! It’s so good having stock radio with ipod control, I don’t miss the double din dvd player at all, as I never watched dvds with it.

I have been raving about it too all the boys here in Adelaide, no doubt you will receive some more orders soon. …  

Thanks again for spending time building this kit! Holden/HSV owners will forever be in your debt!!!!!!”

“However! I’ve since discovered a bigger geek than I who looks like he is qualified to build space shuttles and such. His name is Vlad Apostolov and his website is here. He’s built, and is selling a kit for the Blaupunkt Commodore stereos that gives you an automatic override to whatever’s playing, charges the iPhone, connects to the iPhone with a freaking Dock Connector, and (get this!!) his circuit even alters the text displayed on the Blaupunkt stereo to “IPOD”, “SHUFFLE” and so on! What’s more you can use the head unit and steering wheel buttons to control the iPod!   Oh and did I mention it also shows status information, song, album, artist and play time on the Blaupunkt screen? OMFG. Check out this YouTube clip:

This guy is a freaking space cadet. I’ve never, ever seen someone make such a deep modification to an electrical product to make this Blau do what he’s making it do.”


“Vlad`s Conversion is quite a smart little invention, works great & im very happy”


“Very Great buy! I'm very pleased! thanks for your help Vlad! A++++++++”


“Success! Thanks again mate, it's a creation!”


“Quick reply via email, very quick postage, highly recommended, A+++ Bayer!! Installed it tonight and it works flawlessly. Installation instructions are great and the interface is quite good (especially considering limitations of the radio).  Thank you very much for a great product and great service.”


“A++ this kit is awesome, u r a genius, best commodore audio mod ever

it works great its awesome you have really out done yourself i already have speakers and amps in the car with a dql-8 so i can keep the factory head unit and a stealth install and this was the perfect addition i now have a kickn after market stereo that looks stock as thanks mate you do great work”


“Thanks Vlad, I must say it's been a pleasure dealing with you as you have always been very helpful, just wish everyone I deal with was like you. At least you can put on the website that it works with Vauxhall Monaro's as well now”


“I received and installed the head unit today and everything works perfect. Thank you very much - it is an excellent piece of engineering and you have saved me over $1000 when compared to installing a new head unit and all the other associated costs.

I will recommend you to my friends who also have commodores.”


“Installation went well… Thanks heaps, this is unreal!! No more burning cds!”


“all seems pretty good and I am very happy with your product.”


“ABSOLUTLY BRILLIANT. It works and its great… A very happy …”


“I connected up the interface last night, took about an hour, had great fun doing it, I haven’t soldered on a PCB since school 25 years ago, it was a pleasure to fit with amazing fine detailed instructions, tested it out and it works perfectly, am delighted you took time to designing this for your son, its superb, my hat goes off to you, many thanks”


“The VY Stereo upgrade installation went really well and I impressed myself

that i actually pulled it off (lol) …Your instructions were accurate and very clear and the pictures made it easy to determine which terminal points to solder. My son is VERY happy with the outcome and some of his mates are pretty impressed (and jealous) he has an Ipod friendly VY stereo... Also thank you for replying to my questions over mobilephone texts during the weekend, that was much appreciated, a big help and great service. So thanks again Vlad, keep up the good work - there must be a market

industry for this stuff and I'm happy to be used as a reference at any



“Installed it today it's perfect, followed your great installation guide and everything works as in your video without any hassle. Thanks”


“I received this kit late this afternoon, I have also just successfully completed the install, The system is working perfectly! I was very worried about the soldering as the work is very fine (only realised just how fine after i opened up the head unit). However your pictures and instructions are excellent and the pictures very detailed. This interface is amazing and you should be very proud of what you have achieved! Thank you once again and congratulations on an amazing piece of work.”

“Managed to get the kit up and running without any problems at all last night. All of it seems to be working well and I'm very happy with how it turned out. Thanks again for all the help I'll be sure to recommend this product to anyone else I know who has the same problem with their commodore”


“Huzzah, it's working. … It works perfectly. My son is thrilled because now he doesn't always have to listen to Dad's music, but I have to question his tastes. I want to thank you for all you patience and expertise. If you ever find yourself in San Antonio, please let me know. I owe you some fajitas and cerveza. thanks again”

“Kit arrived last Friday and installed it over the weekend, absolutely fantastic, seamless integration.”


“Thank you very much for the great service and quality work, it works perfectly. I can’t believe I waited so long using an FM Modulator before searching for this mod.”


“works perfectly! It was a lot easier to fit than I thought.

Can only be described as a beautiful thing!... Once again thanks heaps, very pleased with it!”


“Everything the seller said it would be: PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!”


“I had this installed yesterday and it's amazing. First and foremost - Vlad is a genuinely nice guy. He was friendly and explained everything that was going to be done. He also took the time to demonstrate the functionality of the unit after it was installed.

The sound is perfect. In the past I couldn't stand to charge my iphone while it played because of all the noise. Now there is no noise at all. The controls are intuitive and convenient and having the song details display on both of the screens is just the icing on the cake. The installation took about 2 hours, and for anyone who is holding back because of the price, when you consider that this took Vlad 2 years design and test, as well as the convenience, safety and quality of sound that his product provides, you really won't look back and regret spending the money. On a final note, for those with Greg from ASR's pre-outs, these two mods don't interfere with one another. I would 100% recommend to anyone who's thinking of getting this done to just go ahead and do it, you will not regret it for a second.   Speedy, friendly, definitely recommended. Very happy with product and service.”


“I just bought and Vlad fitted the iPod controller for my '08 Omega. GREAT BIT OF KIT ! Took just over an hour and a half to fit, and performs brilliantly! Complete control over the iPod, including steering wheel controls, and displays work perfectly, showing you abum/track etc. This is great work Vlad, very good and cost effective investment….

Best ebay purchase I have made, great piece of gear, proffessionally fitted”


“Excellent quality product, very impressive”


“Got the interface installed, took me about an hour and twenty minutes all up, and I've never pulled apart a VE before. If I did this again, I think I could get it done in about an hour. The installation inside the radio chassis was very easy - Your instructions were concise and straightforward to follow. It was a piece of cake to get the interface cable into the glove box too … The kit worked first time, works just as you demonstrated it to me, and I have no hesitation in recommending it to other VE Omega owners. Thank you very much for the time you've taken to develop and produce this essential missing feature for an otherwise excellent vehicle!”
