Does anyone know why they fade
I'm pretty sure it's due to Frenchness.

They are the easiest thing to replace though. I think including having a dump, making a brew and scratching my bum. It took me 8 minutes to replace the screen in my X line.
Buy a second hand later model one, it needs re coding though.

The one I got was fine. The later ones don't fade, and to be fair, unless it does go pop I see no reason why a newer one would work any better than a nearly new second hand one. Apart from being more expensive.
I've still got the one I fitted to my X line, as I removed it before I traded the car in. Although I'm keeping it, if for any reason my old man needs it for his 407.

So does the newer one fit the older ones wiring etc and how to tell when looking at a secondhand one ie is newer one black at back

yea the wiring is the same but the plug is on the other side IIRC, also the early ones have a white plastic back and the newer ones have black

Cool bet that wasnt the first hes done usefull to watch as i might have tried removing stereo with pins not torx so the newer model does fit and back plate would be black
yeah the radio is held in with tiny torx. You don't remove them, just undo them. They remain captive.

I bought a replacement unit off a guy in Swansea on the bay. It was plug and play. It cost £90, but was well worth it and was incredibly easy to fit as he also provided a video guide.
