    Think the Concert 2 came out in 2002 so yes it will need the CANBUS otherwise you'll be stuck with just 60minutes and then it'll turn off.

    All Audi HU's allow you to turn on for an hour without the keys in the ignition, but then turn off to save draining the battery.
    All the CANBUS does is tell the HU that the ignition is on/off.

    Audi didn't do the Concert 2 for non CANBUS equipped cars.
    You'd need to buy a Concert 1 (tape/radio) or a Delta and add a changer.

    Sorry thought you were talking about the HU rather than the CANBUS emulator. You'll find the Concert 2 won't match the profile of the fascia of the B5 as they were never fitted to that model, so it may stick out a bit.
    You'll need a CANBUS emulator which are about 90, total waste of money IMO just to get the HU to switch on.
    No idea which are the right ones and whether they work as most people would rather spend the money on a decent HU rather than the same again with just CD instead of tape.

    The Concert II can be fitted to the B5.

    Just as a 4.2V8 40V can be fitted to a B5 chassis.

    As long as there's space, and you're not just looking at a bolt-in job, anything's possible.

    No i know there would be modifications needed, i just wanted to know if i could buy the bus emulator thing so the radio does not switch off every hour.

    from what I've seen the best fit is a concert 2 from the A6 or the TT.

    The closest HU you will find is a becker, they look like ans OEm style in an Audi, expensive, but you can get MP3 and sat nav in a single din OE style unit for under 500

    Last question honest
    Would not haveing the can bus sim affect the speakers, when i turn it on sometimes the front speakers come on. Then if i turn it off and on again a few times the fronts come back on again? I just want to know if i have been sold a lemon as im going to kick some butt if i have.
    Thanks
