    Stereo question

    Hi

    Wanting to play my pocket mp3 player through the stereo.
    Now I dont want to use FM transmitter for quality reasons.
    I have the Audi Concert single height player in an A3 TDI SE Sportback (55 Plate)

    Anyone recommend the lead/adaptor I would need form Ebay (I know there is one that plugs into my multi-cd port but not sure on which would be a good one).

    How easy to upgrade to a touch screen larger stereo?
    Im presuming there would be a relocation of hazard switch and cup holder if I got a full geight touchscreen - is this viable?

    I dont suppose there is an Audi single height din stereo that supports a2dp bluetooth streaming other than aftermarket Sony/Alpine/etc etc head units?


    Thanks for any help.

    No idea on cable mate, sorry.

    here is a guide to change over the headunit cage to allow a double din system.

    This would be the correct cable for your problem: Connects2 CTVADX001 Aux Adapter - Audi CTVADX001 by Connects2 - Low Cost Car Audio secure online shop

    This is the ISO version, if you have the Quadlock adapter at the back of the HU, then you need an equivalent adapter also avaliable.

    Then my link is the correct one. Install is 10 mins of work.
    1. Remove the HU
    2. Disconnect 1 HU cable and reconnect it with this new loom.
    3. Connect the included RCA cable to box and put the other end (3.5mm jack) in place of your choice (I recommend under the climate unit. There is a trim, which is easily removed - I choped it a little just to get the cable through. Fits back perfectly)
    4. Put everything back.

    If you'll put the other end of the cable under the climate unit, then I recommend you take the climate unit out.
    And if you're afraid there won't be any space behind there, don't be. There's plenty
