    A LITTLE MORE HELP PLEASE :)

    Hi guys i posted yesterday about my RNS E im getting tomorrow but i also would like some info on the cd changer that houses in the glove box. does the cd changer plug straight into the RNS or do you have to get a cable/adapter? is it plug and play or do you have to have it coded? if i bought the cd changer will it fit straight into my glove box or do i need to make any alterations? or do i need to by a glove box thats houses the cd changer? thanks anthony

    i think you need a new glovebox. tbh it's not worth it, just get AMI and buy an iPod to leave in the car. it'll work out cheaper.

    but you're not buying it as a personal music player. in effect it's your CD changer

    you need a new glovebox for ami too :P

    chances are youll need a new looms and youll need to code your rns for the changer

    As above, you'll need a new glovebox if yours was not specced with a CD changer. You'll also need cabling from changer to RNS-E and then code it. As for AMI, you need the facelifted RNS-E with the media button, new glove box again as above, cabling and coding again. I have retrofitted AMI and I cannot believe what a difference it makes over ipod adapter and CD changer as it lists track names on the RNS-E and the DIS, happy days!

    i can't help but think that for the money you've spent on your car it would have been easier to get a facelift car lol...

    It has not been that much to be honest (well not new car territory anyway) but I must say it's been an absolute hoot!
