    I have a Phatnoise in my golf, and not 100% sure, but the new A3's have basically the same headunit now, the old ones will probably also need similar. that is to say, a CD changer cable.
    The phatnoise basically cons the head unit into thinking it is a CD changer.
    You should not require any other cables as far as I am aware.

    Have you considered getting an IPOD and IPOD link instead?

    Hi ,

    I have an ipod link in my A3, and fitted it myself, was quite straight forward. I've got the docking lead in my glove box. I think it is the easier and cheaper root to go.

    Go for the Dension adapter as it allows you to control the ipod while its connected to the cable, the audi supplied link doesn't.

    Agreed really ease to install will cost about £100, I have the cable in the glovebox, but I wish I had spent time putting it into the arm rest instead.
