    just buy the rns-e for the A4, simple, ebay sellers specify which car it fits anyway, they usually sell with the magnetic gps antenna & the loom, plus the radio antenna adapter aswell, but I'm sure if you ask the seller they would supply any loom you need to convert from symphony to rns connections, make sure you have a set of 4 radio keys aswell when buying the rns-e

    Is it a plug and play and do the loom or loom adaptors connect to my existing leads and what looms are needed

    With the Bose Adaptor, its plug and play. I found it very easy to fit, and everything worked. There were a few wires that needed connecting up for power and the K-Line diagnostics...
    Installing the CD Changer (not really needed) cos of the MP3 SD slots, and the Audi Bluetooth adadptor was a little more complicated, but very easy !

    All the info for fitting an RNS-e used to be on a site called www.navplus.us which has now moved to http://audiforum.us/rns-e/

    Click on the link....and do a search........all the info you need will be here with regard to the Audi OEM SAT NAV RNS-e system....

    Most of the adapters available are plug & play. Make sure you tell the supplier what options you have fitted. i.e. bose, cd changer, telephone. You will also have to do a bit of recoding with VAGCOM to get the directions displayed in the DIS.
    It is a very straight forward upgrade
