    I haven't ordered it as it's cheaper to fit one aftermarket obviously.

    It's got the standard concert i think, double DIN head unit so my question is will it go strait in or do I need some sort of connection cables.

    I have looked at the sticky post above but it only talks about the symphony.

    Any help here would be great, I also want to fit a bluetooth module too, so I was wondering if there was an aftermarket unit that works with the RNS-E instead of the audi one?

    thank you for your help here guys

    I've you've not ordered the car yet then I would spec the BT, it'll save lots of time and aggro for similar money IMHO.

    I have no idea what installing oem bt involves but just looking at the fitted price on ebay i guess its a pain?

    I can recommend the basic nokia BT carkit. Easy to install/use etc

    I have no expeience with RNS-e or the 8P in general

    I have noticed that the aftermarket fitting is just as much as factory.

    Should have looked harder really before ordering the car.

    I wonder though, is it worth just going for a unit like the F900BT or DNX 5220BT they seem to come all in, and play DVD's for about the same money?

    Think I need a play with one first.

    depends who fits it fella, lol, I mean some charge £400 but can be done for at least £100 less for sure & if you do yourself then half that aswell, hey if you're anywhere near me then shout me for any mods to be done.
