You won't be able to code via VCDS Lite. The unit only really needs coding to activate certain features such as Bluetooth, CD Changer, AUX etc and depending on what car the RNS-E was previously installed into will determine the coding that already exists.
You should be able to fit the RNS-E and to actually use the unit as your normally would, but say if you find your Bluetooth or CD-Changer isn't working, its because of the coding of the RNS-E.
The Single to Double Din conversion isn't too bad, just don't be too rough when taking out the old cage, and focus more on the positioning of the cage rather than brute force to remove it.. generally twisting whilst pulling is the best way to remove the cage.
