    mp3 player

    i have a bose system in the car, lovely quality sound system, it has a tape player and a 6 cd front loader but does'nt play mp3s witch i found odd for a car of this class and age (2006), my mum has a kia rio that plays mp3s, a car at the same age, slightly embarrising lol!

    anyway, im looking for a way to play mp3s without making drastic changes, i have an after market alpine in the garage but i dont want to put it in the audi because it will look a bugger, it wont look right in the dash boad so i want to keep it standerd.

    is there any way i can do this such as installing a memory card reader or an aux jack were i could fish it neatly into the glove box?? i'd like it were i can control it useing the controls on my steering wheel? has anyone done this and how without such an expence? i tried using an fm transmitter on a prevease car and found it abserlutly crap, there was no sound quality, it was very fuzzy, i want something more fixed to the system already in the car.

    Let's you keep your multi change as well, the sound quality through SD is far better than cd of jack plug.

    Does that system show the music playing on the DIS? Or do you need something else for that?

    seems a good idea! but i dont know if it would work, i doubt very much i have the muilty chainger connection on the back of my stereo! my 6 cd mulity chainger is all part of the head unit, its not the seperate thing in the glove box! unless theres anothor way to connect it? and would it work my steering controls?

    The internal CD-Changer is CD 1-6 if you add that unit then you also get CD 7-12.

    There is no mention of can-bus interface so I don't believe you get anything on the DIS. Have a look at the Dension units if you want DIS intergration.

    Steering wheel control is just a load of BS marketing, it's the radio/steering wheel which controls things these ipod adapters Aftermarket & Genuine Audi have no direct comunication to the steering wheel controls.

    Fitting seems fairly straight forward just plug in to the cd changer socket and away you go as I read it ?
    Were have people put the device once fitted ?

    I used velcro pads and stuck it to the roof of the glove box.
