    Bose - don't bother, not worth it. Better putting your money into an aftermarket system.

    RNS-E - easy retrofit, just buy the unit, remove old unit, install new unit and enjoy. Just a plug and play item.

    RNSE is not really a plug and play item on a newer car...

    You need to ensure the new one is coded in properly with VCDS and unless you want to put up with **** radio reception and error codes stored on your head unit you need to make up a custom loom and change the large and small antenna amplifiers in the tailgate for the diversity setup that a factory fitted car came with.

    You also need to re-arrange some wiring and buy a new plug from Audi if you want to retain the factory fitted AUX port by the handbrake.

    That said, it's a very worthwhile mod, I've been very impressed with the 2011 RNSE unit I bought.

    Didn't know that about the facelift but in the pre facelift you can just slot it in and works a treat

    Nav is read from CD only

    The 2014 DVD part number is 8P0 919 884 BQ

    And no you can't put the contents of the DVD on to an SD card an run it.

    Speak to NHN, he can supply u with an RNSE and map disc
    I got RNSE retrofitted and I didn't upgrade the antenna etc and my radio is great
    Agree with above Bose is good when u get it for nothing when u get the car, don't think if retrofit it tho for the price.
    Plus Bose and RNSE "can" be prone to volume issues mainly audio pilot mic.
    Better/ cheaper upgrading the speakers in the car for a noticeable difference
