    DVD PLAYERS

    hello guys

    just wondering whether i need a certain dvd player to fit into my audi a3 55 plate?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Ripspeed-DV710...item2307587148

    i was looking at this 1, but will it bring any error messages on my dash and also how easy are these to fit?

    if any1 is selling one, please let me no!


    Thanks



    Javed

    That DVD player wont bring up any errors on your dash, its just changing the Head Unit.


    It it were me, I would want to go for a more sheek look, get a RNS-E, a Multimedia Adapter then a DVD player... can be pricey though:

    RNS-E: ~ 450
    Multimedia Adapter: 100
    DVD player: 30


    You would also need some sort of power converter to convert the standard plug to match one of the car, think places like Halfords etc do these for about 20.



    To answer your initial question though , yes it will work fine without any problems.

    Yeah, it will just use the original audi sound system.

    The only bits you'll require are the actual Head Unit and its wiring. The wiring will convert the standard ISO plugs from your A3 into the Head Units fitment.

    You should also get a fascia, just to tidy it up a bit - can get these on eBay for ~ 15

    If its the top one, you'll be totally fine to have a straight fit for the DVD player. But if its for the below pictures, I'm not sure if you need a seperate cage to hold the DVD player...

    Yeah straight swap is all it is buddy, and you don't need a power converter. Its a DVD player built for a Car so the power will run into the back of the Head Unit from the wires in your car.

    Should be the same, quality of the sound is determined by the speakers.

    Any time bud.

    i thought you loose alot of quality to the rears due to how the audi stereos use the amp ?
    ive got the rns-e with interface and dvd player and playstation along with reverse camera, well worth the money in my opinion
