Rob, I would go for this if I were you. Assuming the functionality is on a par with the factory fit, you won't regret it.

DAB coverage is good for me - up and down M6 & M1 but mainly in Lancashire & Cumbria & up to Scotland.

There is a 5 second dead spot just off J36 M6 on the Kendal bypass. The only downside I've noticed.

However, I used to totally lose FM signal going through the hills when driving to Scotland (in every car I have had for years). With DAB it doesn't give a kick, so much better.

If you listen to stations like Talksport or 5live(?) it is just faultless on DAB. None of that horrid white noise.

Just do it mate.
