    "JasonS" & Wrath" have done this, think the faceplates are very similar (if not the same) in the B6 as in the B7, could drop either of them a PM and they might be able to offer some guidance.

    Think the faceplates are just held on by small screws, just have to be careful and use the correct size driver and not round them off. Finding faceplates to buy can be tricky though... not sure if you can even buy them on their own direct from Audi?

    Also a RNS-E unit from a Seat Exeo HU should fit without the need for a faceplate swap.

    I followed this guide: Changing an Audi NAV System Face Plate For A Gallardo

    The Audi is marginally different. The key point to note is Figure 21. If you ruin these screws you are b*ggered. I pressed down on the screwdriver and used some pliers to turn the driver. Just take your time, takes about an hour to do.

    The faceplates are identical in the B6 and B7.

    Provided you don't mind the Seat logo/name on it.
