    K04's S3 8L Thread

    Hey all this is my Thread for my beloved Audi S3 8l 2000 i bought this from an online Auction site in January as a insurance write off s3crashed.jpg

    Ive since replaced crash effected parts and it looks like this now

    20130304_131304.jpg

    Sunday i ordered my new headunit as my old one is suffering from the dreaded volume fault so i ordered this

    DEH-6400BT CD Tuner with iPod/iPhone Control, MIXTRAX, Bluetooth, SD card slot and 3 Hi-Volt RCA Pre-outs (RGB/Multi-colour buttons and display) - Pioneer Car Stereo, Radio

    deh-6400_blue_gallery.jpg

    main reason for getting this unit is the 3 x 4v rca preouts and the SD card slot & BT
    now the fun i believe my car is none bose. so now i need to buy some adapters or is it possible to make my own anyone have a wiring diagram?

    Just bought some Chrome mirrors but it appears they dont fit the casing is correct but the original bottom cover is of a different shape so would leave a gap!

    any help greatly appreciated

    Regards

    You need a Bose adaptor mate... I used one for ages with my Alpine HU before fitting the rest of my amps etc... worked well for me... the one I have is an Autoleads PC9-408 speaker line adaptor and you also need and aerial adaptor...

    Not sure tbh... I have it sat up in the loft ready to go into the classifieds as it happens lol (shameless plug)

    If you have Bose it will say Bose on the speaker covers and you should have an amp in the drivers side cubby in the boot, the sub should be a twin cone unit...

    Re: K04's S3 8L Thread

    I bought same chrome mirrors from eBay & had same problem when I tried to get them fit on my facelift , the bottom attachment was to big to fit oem bottom holder.
    I'd lost out on them after I tried to send them back..'.well pissed'
