    Car Stereo

    Hi Guys,

    Do you know if this sony system will fit into my Audi without any problems:

    Sony car stereo CD-less car stereo for iPod USB Aux in DSX S100 (4905524604474) | eBay

    Will the radio and all speakers work? without any cutting of wires etc

    I replace the standard system in my VW polo with a Sony and it was a straight swap and everything worked fine

    Yes with the right adapters. You need a wiring adapter to feed the rear/sub amp, fascia adapter and aerial amp adapter for the radio.n And also radio removal keys. When removing the HU take out the glovebox and push the HU from behind once the keys are in position. Do not pull the HU out by pulling on the keys as this can knacker the spring clips and you can end up with the old HU jammed in the dash.
    Depends what year your car is as to whether it is ISO or Quadlock as Audi changed it around 2005

    I've just had this fitted last week Sony DSX-S300BTX CD Mech-Less Bluetooth Unit with iPod Dock - DSX-S300BTX from Sonyto my 04 plate Audi A3 with single DIN ISO concert stereo - for the extra £60 it is worth it for the in-built bluetooth. It cost me £60 to get it fitted including the adapter, fascia, aerial adapter and labour

    That headunit's pretty sick and that was a really good price for fitting, which part of the country are you in? Cause i know in my neck of the woods it's about £60-70 just for labour!

    Well I got it, and Discovered when installing the unit that there was a Sony Ericcsson handsfree kit from a previous owner that has been plumbed into the wiring, and as a result its not plug and play.

    Grrrr, Now I only have front speakers. and a feint humm from the speaker in the boot. Any ideas?
