    RNS-D was the model used for the 8L but its obsolete... a few have had RNS-E conversions though... have a search... you use an A4 oneor A6 one IIRC and mod it to fit...

    Hi you've got two options if you want to keep things oem. The original RNS-D which fits straight in or the newer RNS-E from an A4 which needs some light modifying to width and height to fit and will bring the dash bang up to date!

    Have a little search on the forum for some pics and guides as its been done a few times.

    Yup i have the newer RNS-E in my car and highly reccomend it you need the RNS-E form an A4 B6 or B7 car and a few mods to make it work plus a bit of coding via VCDS. As suggested use the search and lookf for RNS-E retrofit or PM your email addy and i will send you the guide i used.
