    Aftermarket HU for S3... What bose adapter do i need?

    Hi guys

    I'm getting an Alpine HU soon. I understand i need a Bose adapter for it to plug into the back of it? I have a fully amped Bose system in my S3, what adapter do i need and where from??

    Thanks

    Think its this one with the black box on it. Give them a quick call before ordering theyre really helpful people and know their stuff. Its a common question so theyll know for sure.

    depends if ur full bose or not. If full itll pop on/off, changing track, when you mute on/off, someone phones you (parrot), gets really annoying after a while.

    Definitely the connects2 one. Tried two auto leads before giving up on them. Zero issues with the connects2 one though
