    8p0 symphony 2 into a 8L S3

    My symphony 2 radio in my 8L S3 (8L0 035 195) is playing up, it doesn't light up when you put the lights on anymore and it never turned on or off with the ignition you need to manually turn it on and off. Now I can get my hands on a symphony 2 from a 8p (8P0 035 195) but would it work in my S3.

    I doubt it will work, the 8P A3 was a very special car as it was the first to have a dedicated can gateway. This means that A3 and also TT/R8 radios do not work in non can gateway cars like A2/A3 8L/A4/A6 cars.

    The canbus system in the 8P is different and the radio will not turn on/off or display in the DIS when installed in your car.

    That's pretty much the way it is just now then.

    If it's like that then it needs wiring to the canbus of your car and then it will work.
