    New HU instal... would I have any problems?

    Right I know this will be against most peoples personal factory look taste buds but due too my limited budget its a good option for me. Im currently looking at installing this: http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10001&langId=-1&catalogId=10151&productId=247453&categoryId=31 44 5 into my 1999 audi A3 and for 199.99 its a bargin. I am currently running a sony amp and sub thats piggy backed off the standard audi amp. Im happy with this for now and I want too leave it that way. Going to take the cd changer out until I resell the car and just plug my ipod into the back of this new head unit.
    Heres my questions

    1/ Can anyone see me having any issues with installing this HU?
    2/ Will I be able to buy a simple plug and play wiring loom for this head unit or will I have to cut one and wire it myself?
    3/ Has anyone personally had one of these HU's themselves? Ive heard that when working they are perfect but they can be tempermental.

    Would be very greatful for any feed back

    (Note: posted this thread in the ICE forum aswell but wanted specific A3/S3 owners advice aswell)

    u got bose in your car?

    you will need a wiring loom deffo, u can get em off flea bay just there are different ones for bose and non bose because of the way the speakers are wired up... so long as u have the correct loom cant see u having any problems...andy mac is the guy to b talking to about ICE installs. he may b along to shed some more light on it!
