    Hi All

    I have nearly completed the purchase of a 2006/56 A3 Sportback 2.0TDi 170 Quattro. It seems to have a Concert CD player but acording to Autotrader/techdata it should have a "Concert single CD player with MP3 facility" fitted as standard but i can see no details of how to use the MP3 compatiblity in the Hand book.

    if this is not correct how difficult is it to fit a OEM IPOD adapter (no CD changer fitted) and what controls of the Ipod will i have.

    thank you

    If it's single DIN Concert II then it can't play MP3 CDs, if it's a double DIN Concert II+ the it can play MP3 CDs.

    The OE iPod adapter is a POS (IMHO) - since you get no album name or track names and your iPod looks like a 6CD changer (CD1..5 = first 5 playlists, CD6 = whole iPod).

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=160278513863

    of course you would need to get the RNS & adapter yourself but I could suggest people to buy of for that no problem at all mate & fitting we would all help you to do via here as alot of us have done by ourselves or if one of us is local we could offer our services if not confident to do yourself.
