    Upgrading stereo

    I'm wanting to fit a later stereo with the chrome buttons to my 06my but i'm not sure what i need as there seem to be so many differences.
    I've read i need an aerial adapter, wiring block but i've read the newer model has an amplifier in the tailgate and without this i'll get a poor signal?

    Can i buy the amplifier and will it fit in the tailgate or will i need to drill/ stick it in there (are holes already in place? does it replace whatever is already there?)

    I've been offered just the stereo (6 disc) for Ł100 so how much would everything else cost?

    Cheers

    Should be a straight swap on an 06 plate if you are fitting a later Audi HU. Audi changed to quadlock around 05, but I guess you need to check yours if it's an early 06 as there was quite a crossover, I've seen 05's quadlock and ISO.

    You will need new aerial amps in the boot. Otherwise you will not get reception for radio. It will be ok for 30 sec's 'ish , then just cut to very poor reception. As said, see Johns3's guide in the faq's (it is for rns-e fix, but you need to do the reverse of what he has done).You could do a swap with somebody that is looking to fix their aerial issue with rns-e,to keep costs down.

    I bought an rns-e harness from ebay, and the aerial adapter. Small wiring change to the harness. 1 wire piggybacked to another.

    It will then work properly. You will not need vcds to any coding.

    Hope that helps.

    I don't suppose anyone has any pics of them fitted?

    That is the right one. However, mine wasn't that expensive.

    This one is over half the price of that one

    Hi, we spoke before, I have the stereo that you are looking for and the adaptor for the quadlock and aerial, pictures are in the classifieds. Could do the wholelot for Ł100 plus delivery, can't be bothered to put on ebay! Letme know.
