    If it's got tits or gears it's gonna be expensive.

    Unless you've fitted a wiring adapter that includes a CAN bus adapter you won't have any switched igniton feed or lights on wire - the OE Audi radios only have a permanent feed and get all the other information they need off of the Infotainment CAN bus.

    just wire in a switched live

    all you need to do is find a switched live which you can take from the fuse box somewhere or there is a really thin red wire that runs under the steering column to the ignition you can wire this to a relay and power through the relay to the stereo you cant wire the thin wire direct as its too thin to carry the load, doing it this way will make it work like OE keeping the stereo on until you pull the key out
