Hi,

Happy to have just purchased a 2007 QPV Executive GT.

I am based in Surrey and enjoying driving this car through the many dodgy country roads!

Identified issues I will be looking to address;
  • Second car key needs to be reprogrammed
  • Corrosion protection
  • Upgrade the Blaupunkt entertainment unit (hopefully as this looks to be somewhat impossible in 2022!)

Welcome from an ex- Surrey resident.

Sports Italia should be able to fix you up up with an upgraded system

And also the corrosion protection.

Good to hear from the community.

@safrane I spoke to Matt at Sports Italia and unfortunately the overlay unit they have is for the facelift version only i.e. not the '07 Blaupunkt unit with the sticky buttons on either side

@Felonious Crud yes I am booking in for the corrosion protection, c. 4 week lag time ;)

and welcome too.
The executive and Sport GT QP V sweet spot for trim. The Sport GT S is likely better handling but cost way more.
Not sure about any realistic audio upgrade for our cars. I listen to the mechanical symphony or stream from my. phone via parrot.

Congratulations and welcome, I'm based in East Surrey... on perhaps the only road in Surrey that doesn't have a Range Rover on it. Yet.

may have to settle with putting in a car jack to the head unit and playing music through my phone. I am more concerned about taking calls on the go than the music though.
