    Audi Phatnoise

    Hello All,

    It's been a while since my last post, but as i'm thinking about changing my car I though I'd ask the experts.

    I'm thinking about ordering a new B7 A4 with Phatnoise. Simple question, is it worth it in terms of quality, performace, etc? Or should I save my money and buy something aftermarket?
    cheers.

    If your gonna get a Phatnoise, don't get it from Audi.....they want 700 for the thing.

    I just bought mine on Ebay for 200 and am fitting it myself (with a little help from Craigyb [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    As for the quality and performance.....I don't know yet as my car isn't due until the end of October [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Look at some of Craigyb's posts or even PM him. He does Phatnoise installs and he's only about an hour away from you!

    I love mine (has it about 6 weeks or so). I bought the VW one from ebay for 169. All works perfectly and is virtually plug and play.

    Re: Audi Phatnoise

    Does it only work with VAG OEM head units, or can it be set up to play with aftermarket HUs, like Alpine?

    Re: Audi Phatnoise

    take a look here:

    http://www.phatnoiseuk.co.uk/phatnoise_buy.php

    they seem to be offering an alpine phatbox solution (granted, it uses a certain head unit, and they dont have it in stock) - but you could ask them how it's possible.

    I have doubts whether this site is affiliated with phatbox though..

    You're a diamond, Madvw. That Alpine HU is exactly the one I've got. I've sent off an enquiry email asking if they can supply the Phatbox only to hook up to it.

    Hi Craig - I am very interested in a phatnoise but for some reason I can't PM you. Can you please let me have a price for supply and fitting. Thanks.
