S3 aftermarket stereo help
New owner of a 2002 Audi S3. Love the car, its totally standard (so yes it'll need a remap, TLC and some tinkering!) and yes its in silver - the fastest colour!
Only real problem is the headunit (single din audi chorus). Has a volume control problem. So its time to replace especially as I have an alpine stereo in a box in the cupboard!
I've done loads of searching, most threads talk about non or rear bose amplified systems, from what I can tell mine is full bose, (Bose front speaker covers, bose sub (2 speakers in sub) in one boot pocket, and what looks like an amp in the second! Local auto electrcian has never seen a full bose system so has no idea!
As part of the shopping list I will have to buy some radio keys so I can remove the stereo, so I can't see whats behind the unit!
Shopping list so far:
1) Fascia Adaptor (CT24AU07)
2) Active Aerial adaptor (CT27AA08) (Think this is right, headunit has the long type - car has the small flat type?)
3) Wiring Harness (?)
4) Canbus Adaptor (CAN-01.2)
These are connects2 part numbers - if anyone knows any better parts then please advise!
Can someone who knows what i'm attempting tell me if i'm ordering the correct parts and what harness i'll need? (headunit has Front and Rear RCA so will use them to get sound) Don't want to replace the bose system yet, just replace the headunit with the exsiting speakers / sub until I can afford a proper sub / speaker install.
Apologies for the long post, i'll put up a hello thread, with piccys soon!
