    Exclamation Aftermarket Stereo (A3 8L 2001) ??

    I want to fit an aftermarket stereo in my A3 but there is so many choices when it comes to fascia's and iso leads.


    I think i know what fascia i need now but can someone please help me out with what iso i need

    From what i can see, it looks like I've already got iso leads on the car but there is a third lead.

    Here are some pictures of the stereo I've got:

    The above pic shows that the stock head unit directly feeds the front door speakers.

    If your car has rear speakers, then you will need an adaptor cable to go from that third plug, to the RCA Pre-outs on your new headunit, as the rear speakers have their own amplifier.

    PC9 404 is what you need forget the descriptions, they never get it right. Rear amplified Bose doesn't actually exist, all Audi systems are rear amplified, Bose is fully amplified. The adapters work with either just depends whether you get front & rear RCA's or just rear.
