    Headunit fitting

    I have got this standard headunit at the min but how do I know what extra wires I need to fit a new one? I have tried researching it but I haven't got anywhere.
    Can anyone help?

    Have you got a multi function steering wheel? Do you want to fit a double DIN unit, that's quite bit more complicated.

    I'm surprised you can't find info, most car stereo dealers have quite good guides as to what connectors you'll need. Put simply I think you'll need a CANBUS adapter, the built in stereo is switched on and off by CANBUS signals, not a switched 12V the Alpine unit will need. If you haven't got a MFSW a fairly generic CANBUS adapter will do, if you have you'll need one for Audi steering wheel CANBUS signals too.
