They are not screw covers, they are part of the fixings.

You need to pull them out parallel from both sides at a time.

You then release the metal clip that this part goes into.

Same as this video

Iíve not tried the USB connection myself, I understand itís a bit old fashioned and can be a bit sensitive to whatís plugged in!!

It will read MP3s off a USB stick or it will interfaces with an old-school iPod. It absolutely will not work with a modern iPhone running Apple Music (tried that).

Essentially, it's a waste of space in this day and age.

I personally went for Pioneer SPH-DA160DAB unit as it comes with both CarPlay and Android Auto out the box. The install is straightforward if you get the Connects2 fitting kit + replacement fascia.

The SPH-DA160DAB has a capacitive touchscreen (same as your smartphone), which is a bit more reactive to my sausage fingers. The cheaper end of car stereos tend to have resistive touchscreens which require a bit more force and it's not necessarily a Good Thing to be having to mash your digits into the centre console with max force.

My EX has decent speakers already but it felt like the new head unit made a bit of a difference in sound quality. That and the graphical EQ helps get the sound you want rather than being restricted to MOAR BASS or MOAR TREBLE.
Thank you so much for your reply. Very useful. Can you supply a link for the dashboard insert required to work with this upgrade please.

I've had heated seats on previous cars and when tested I've always found my body heat warms the seat before I feel any heat coming through the seat material.

If that's the case, I'd check my body temperature...

Plus, I'm dubious whether the inner seat heat is drying out the side false leather causing the cracks for some. Just a theory but after researching and reading that flexible PVC and the like should not be allowed to dry.

The heaters are only below the cloth bits. I use the heaters regularly in winter and have seen no problems with the fake leather so far.

How do you remove the covers on the ends of the handles? The covers (presumably over the screws) will not come off.

I've only previously had heated seats under real leather.

I press the demist button.  It concentrates most of  the available engine heat, fan air, and any dehumidifying effect of the air conditioning  for that one purpose rather than wasting it trying to also warm passengers.    It works quite quickly,defrosting and demisting  better than most cars I've had.  Saves having to stop to take off the excess warm  clothing when the car heats up. .Been there, done that.Got the T shirt  (worn as an extra layer)     

Must admit I previously  regarded heated seats as an unnecessary and  decadent extravagance and probably would have opted out of paying extra for them. And might still do so for a conventional i.c.e. car.  .  But they have a definite advantage on range on a full EV, and therefore of petrol consumption on a hybrid.   Plus they are pleasant.   I can rough it when necessary with extra clothes. Have sometimes  slept with a bedroom at minus 9c or colder.   But if you have heated seats but not using them out of principle then  I beg to differ.   I could manage without a heated steering wheel in the UK  but have used it and can see the advantage if you live in colder climates.  Driving without fur mittens  ;D

I agree.

I like to drive round in about 21C so that's what my Auto CC is set to all year round. I don't use either the heated seats or steering wheel.

I'm very pleased how quick warm air does start to be felt. Definitely quicker than my old 9G Civic.

My 2006 1.2S returned a calculated figure of 55 mpg over six and a half years and 62.500 miles. When I moved to Edinburgh and started to do more urban driving, the mpg dropped off considerably.
