    Anyone had any experience with this unit?

    Ive already ordered this CT24AU07 Facia Plate for Audi A3 2000> item no

    Hi,

    Thats look ok, depends what you want from a stereo, i just brought a used Alpine head unit from eBay for £70 delivered, that has built in bluetooth, parrot and iPod controls. (As well as cd, AUX and USB)

    Worth shopping around, IMO second hand head units you cant really go wrong with

    Guys,

    Im wanting to finally do this so am looking at stereos. Am i correct in thinking that aslong as you have the correct lead to connect the stereo to the car the stereo doesnt really matter?

    Is there anything that will break from fitting an after market stereo?

    Any recommendations for a checp unit with parrot bluetooth?

    Thanks

    Guys,

    I have bought a stereo which is

    I have tried to fit it and im getting no where. I have the usual audi stereo plugs IMAG1444.jpg

    and these plugs on my stereo

    IMAG1446.jpg

    I have the PC9-401 lead and I have connected the black audi plug to the red 401 plug, the RCAs to the preouts on the stereo, the remote system control (blue and white lead) to the leads with the red 401 plug and out a plug on the 2nd blue and white lead (remote system control) going into the head unit which is plugged into ignition power.

    I am still not getting any power to the stereo

    anyone know why?

    thanks in advance

    If you plug in your old stereo, does it power up?
