    Stock Headunit.

    Hey, just after a little advice really. My 51' plate S3 has a Bose system in it. I've been quoted big-ish bucks to get a an aux port which requires me to have a phone kit, just for this privilege. Also it's started skipping CD's & I think it's approaching being knackered. My main question is, has anyone fitted an aftermarket head unit in? That incorporates well with the bose & preferably fits nice in the dash? Mine also has the 6 cd changer built in to the head unit if this makes a difference. Or is it too much hassle? Cheers!

    I haven't done it myself but if you do a search there's an adapter called a PC409 (or something like that) which means you can put in an aftermarket radio. The adapter ensures that the popping interference you would get with the Bose setup is reduced.

    I take it that if you don't have the BOSE in your A3, then you can just use any headunit and a wiring harness for it to work?

    Is there anything that allows the original CD Changer to still be used?
