    Assuming you have a Double DIN headunit your laughing!
    Make sure you get all the cable adaptors and GPS antenna.
    Check out the Navplus website which covers all aspects of RNS-E retrofittig aspects.

    I had to do a little more with a Single to Double DIN conversion first - but well worth it.

    For in-depth advice check out the http://www.navplus.us/forums/ website which covers all aspects of RNS-E retrofittig aspects.

    In summary, Single DIN (SD) to Double DIN (DD) requires....

    - New A/C control unit which is DD compatible
    - New DD cage
    - strip out the centre console - remove the SD cage - fit the DD cage
    - make some mods to your existing centre console surround with a hacksaw
    - refit centre console
    - refit new DD A/C unit
    - fit new DD ICE unit - could be Symphony II as an interim before fitting RNS-E

    You will have left over and no longer useable in your car:
    - SD ICE unit - probably Concert II
    - SD A/C control unit

    double din aircon unit isnt required, you only have to trim the sides down with a dremmel or good knife. there is a over hang on the outer trim,if you trim it back to the next stage of the plastic surround (easy to see when its in your hand) then its location lugs/grooves on the side are suitable to slide in in the lower position for the double din location aswell as the single din location, saving you money.
    plenty of people have done this and im one of them,perfect fit,very easy diy mod.

    Hello

    So what exactly do you mean by removing the centre console? Is there any post with step by step guide for A4 Cabrio?

    The one I found on the link is for a A3.

    Thanks

    Hello

    Yes I would like to DIY this. I found a great PDF for A4 B6 but I wondering if it was similar for A4 Cab.

    http://debian.fmi.uni-sofia.bg/~plam...%20an%20A4.pdf

    I have a multitronic box and the circuit was replaced due to a fault. I really don't want to tuch the gearbox cover...

    thats spot on,i did my own in my cab and its exactly the same.
    just take your time and youll be fine.
    theres nothing to worry about around the gear selector.
