    Well, are you fussed about having a cd changer? A cd changer does give you 6 discs to choose from, which means that you don't have to go rooting around your glove-box and swapping discs constantly. But, If you want to install the cd changer, you need to fit a new glove-box, so from a cost point of view it may be cheaper getting a concert II to replace your Chorus II.

    If you still decide to get a changer, let me know as I have a complete glove-box(black) and changer for sale.

    I would suggest getting rid of the crap audi factory Headunit.

    I've got an Alpine single din 9850 H/U with the high speed ipod link into the glovebox. This gives me over 400 albums with all the track names displayed on the headunit and controlled from the headunit. Under £200 for the unit and £10 for the facia adaptor.

    I personally wouldn't invest anymore money in the Audi sound system. Going aftermarket means for a little more money you can have a DAB HU that plays mp3 CD's (10 albums on a single CD) and has a proper interface for iPOD etc, oh and will also improve the overall sound. If you don't want to change the look of the dash then surely ICELink to iPOD or Phatbox is a far better investment than a changer.

    Get a 20GB Phatnoise/Phatbox and stick it in the glovebox and save tearing into your car. I personally don't like the look of aftermarket radios in an Audi. The interior of the A4 looks too good!
