    If you are going to replace with adouble din OEM radio, you have to put the double din cage in - which means the centre console needs to come out. Not as daunting as it sounds, get a Haynes manual and it's just a matter of following the instructions. I've done it 3 times and the 3rd time took 25min!

    I think they're around £80 from a dealer, but I'm not 100% sure on that. I was lucky to get one for £20 delivered. Best thing to do would be to call Audi and check the current pricing.
