    Replacing std bose headunit with aftermarket

    Morning Folks,

    Before i start...i have done my searches, just wanting to clarify what info i have picked up is correct before i go and spunk this money.

    Car is a 2003 Audi S3 - With the Double Din Std Stereo and the Full Bose with amp and sub.

    reason for changing this out is because the CD Auto changer has stopped working, and i miss having the function of listening to my IPOD.

    This is the what im planning on getting. If someone who has done this can confirm or point me in another direction.

    Pioneer Double Stereo of some sorts
    "CT51-AU01" - Bose Active System Adaptor
    "CT27AA14" - Amplified Areial
    "CT23AU02" - Audi A3 Double din fasica.

    Thanks in advance. Done my home work just wanting someone to say yay or nae (providing if you think it will work of course)

    Thanks in advance!

    My car is a A3 8P1 Full Bose with subwoofer came with symphony II 6 CD Changer unit, A while ago I changed the unit to a double din Alpine and yet had all speakers + original Bose sub working whilst I added my own 12" subwoofer and amplifier and all went well. Not sure if this would help or not, but my wiring harness which connects to my aftermarket unit has 4 RCA cables which basically converted all Bose speakers and sub to 4 RCA which is now sitting plugged into my Front and Rear on my Alpine Unit.

    In your case it should work without a problem, however dont own 8L so not sure on the harness however the main thing you need to be sure on is your wiring everything else is preference. Best of luck.
