    double din to single din.

    I have a double din HU and want to upgrade to an aftermarket unit.
    Which will of course be single din.

    what other bits will i need ?
    I have looked at a few pictures of interiors of S3's and it appears that the models that have single din HU have the climate controls moved up and have something underneath the climate which i cant make out.

    will i need this ?
    will a single din even fit in a double din hole ?


    Thanks
    James

    Why not fit a double din aftermarket unit?

    You could fit a double din screen from most of the major manufacturers?>

    Im going to convert to double din from a concert to do this exact thing....

    i already know which HU i am going to buy.

    all the double DIN ones will not suit my needs + they are too expensive.

    If you are going the opposite way to me let me buy all your single DIN stuff off you then problem is solved

    Do you have a better picture of what you have in your car as i dont know what the thing is below the climate control it just looks polished and black is it a storage compartment ?


    mordz that looks perfect tbh its going to be much easier to buy one of those by the looks of it, except thats for the newer shape audi.

    And is it simply a case of moving the cliomate control up and fitting the storage compartment or do other things need doing as well ?

    you need to change the cage structure and the climate unit if you want to do it?

    I believe this kit will fit it

    Although its for an A6 it should replace the Symphony you have

    S3


    A6


    They don't look the same, it doesn't look like it would fit, are you 100% sure that the facia will fit ?
