    turn the music up! :p

    you will get louder road noise as standard with bigger lower profile tyres

    The noise can also be tyre specific with some brands being better than others, alot of Audi's are shod with Conti's which though grippy are fairly noisy, I'm a fan of Goodyear GSD 111 but these have now been replaced with a new updated version so at replacement time unsure what to go for.

    First off, welcome to the forum.

    It's not that difficult but it is not a job if you are faint hearted as the changing from single to double din requires a fair bit of dismantelling.

    I did mine myself and it took about 4 hours if I remember correctly.

    By far the most difficult bit for me was swapping the cages. The bit I was most worried about was the trimming of the climate control panel, but that was actualy quite easy.

    There is a complete how to do this here.

    Hope that helps.
