    Does size matter?

    Hi chaps,

    I am currently looking out for an RNS-E for my A3, but there is a guy local to me selling a unit from an A4 (08 plate). I have seen a thread before where someone cut a unit to fit in their A2, so I was wondering if it is possible to adjust an RNS unit from an A4 or even A6 to fit into the A3.

    It is just the fascia plate that is different, so does size matter? I noticed that the A4 one has squarer edges, I guess it needs to be bigger all round as otherwise there will be gaps.

    Cheers

    Stratts, dont even bother to try & cut A4 to 8P mate, it will look a mess & also dont think it has enough fascia to cut it correctly anyway, even I wouldnt even try that & I've had big balls on previous mods lmfao, nah serious note, get an 8P version & save yourself a hell of a headache & allot of money.

    I have an 8P RNS for sale aswell as fitting possible, PM if interested.
