    Stereo Options (+iPod)

    So...
    spec'ing up my A3 S-Line...

    Standard "Concert" Radio - Free
    Symphony II - Ł265
    Bose Speakers - Ł440
    iPod - Ł175

    Are they worth bothering with?

    Why not get the free concert II+, save yourself £265, buy an RNS-E from ebay for less than £500 and have DVD navigation, dont waste your money on the symphony II unless you don't want NAV & mp3 slots and do want a 6 CD player.

    I guess, a simple question...
    What does the Symphony give my in return for £265? Does it do anything extra?

    I've got an iPod that I would like to use.
    I've got a TomTom 910 that I would like to use, unless the Audi Satnav is fantastic?

    Is the Bose speaker upgrade worth £440? Is it any louder? clearer?

    Does any of it make any difference for resale?

    My advice - stick with TomTom. I got the Symphony radio with the built in cd player (6 discs)- I reckoned it was better value than having the separate CD box option.
    S3 Sportback DSG in Sprint Blue with mag ride, interior lights, Bose, parking sensors.

    and...

    The Dension is the best ipod adapter by far. I am saving Ł400 by not buying the Bose and getting my local Audio dealer to install a better system for the same money.

    Totally agree with this statement, I've got the iPod adaptor with the Symphony II and Bose and the iPod dock interface is a crock of $h1t. Wish I'd gone :

    a) SatNav + 6 disc changer

    OR

    b) Symphony II + Dension + Standalone Nav
