    You'll need a CAN bus adapter that generates the "igniton" 12V that your aftermarket HU needs - Audi OE HU's only have permanent 12V and use messages on the CAN bus to tell them when to turn on/off.

    Plus you'll need something to feed 12V onto the antenna lead to power the antenna amps built-in to the car.

    the autoleads adaptor converts the power input of the standard unit into the power input of your new one

    Go to an audio shop they will charge about £20/£30 and you will have a stereo that works. If you're not sure what you're doing you'd probably end up doing some damage worst case scenario.

    What year is your car? some of the B7s are quadlock connectors some are ISO, two connectors that look the same with an additional rectangle plug. By the look of your picture you have the ISO type connection in your car,you can get the bose ISO loom adapters online or from an audio shop, you will also need an Ariel adapter.

    I agree with this. Unless you really know what you're doing, you can easily end up shelling out more cash on having someone undo your mistakes than you would pay them to do it right from the outset.
