    Headunit face-plate adapter

    Hi folks.

    I've had a quick search through the threads but cant find anything about this. I am hopefully getting a new after market head unit and I am in search of a face plate adapter to allow me to fit it. I currently have a standard symphony cassette player, can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Don't think there is one for double-DIN to single DIN conversion on the B5 assuming the new HU is single DIN. There is one for the B6/B7 but never seen a B5 version.

    This was pointed out to me by another forum member (Doc I think) it arrived yesterday and it fits perfect!

    Strange and very annoying!

    The seller is good though, he marked it down as a gift (didnt even ask him) so I didn't get stung with import duty!

    Nice find, may be after one myself in a few months time.

    Anyone have any comments about fitting and any before & After pics?

    fitment wise not too bad, you get a couple of extras with the kit so it will work with din stereo's as well as the iso ones, the only thing I'd mention is that when you remove the audi one there are two bits of plastic that will make getting the stereo in a bit tricky, you could probably file them down a bit, but I managed to just push my stereo in

    Not a great before and after but you get the idea
