    Just use the ISO lead, you don't need the diversity aerial

    You need to ensure the radio can generate phantom power to power the antenna booster, if it cannot then you may need a widget to provide +12v down the antenna wire.

    But wouldn't the yellow fakra have to be connected somehow to The new radio to do this ? What would be a good 12v wire to connect to ? I have seen a phantom double fakra connection for retrofitting the rnse but does any company make something that will work for me ?

    You just need an ISO aerial amp adapter, and connect the blue flying lead to the power antenna lead on the new head unit.

    Are you sure you have a single DIN Concert (thought they were all double DIN quadlock on the B7)
    If you do have a single DIN Concert then not sure why you bought the CTKAU02, as that includes a Quadlock harness and from the image above your system is clearly ISO - all single DIN Audi HU's are ISO

    yeah im sure its a single din bought a double din frame and climate control in order to fit the double din pioneer.
    Take a look it has both the quadlock and iso harness i bought it as a kit worked out cheaper (this is what i will be using harness with brown rca's) just not sure if it is 100% plug and play ?

    Yes it should be. You won't have a switched ignition live though, not sure if that adapter will give you CANBUS emulation so you may need to wire both up to the perm live or wire in a switched live

    Apparently it is compatible with the canbus system it has a little box (far right on the picture) that is supposed to hook up to it so Im hoping this will give ignition live and illumination. Is there anything else the canbus adapter should control ?

    No just power and steering wheel controls if you have them

    The canbus interface I got delivers GALA (speed controlled volume) and illumination as well as ignition and reverse gear outputs
