    Anyone know of any adaptors to be able to display FM/CD/MP3 info on the DIS screen with aftermarket HU's? I am aware of adaptors for the MF steering wheel, which I won't have, but not for the DIS screen..

    I have already decided to upgrade the headunit pretty much as soon as I get the car, but haven't decided on the model yet. Any info on this subject is most welcome! Mostly I am ofcourse interested on info regarding the A3 8P /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile_smoking.gif

    No there aren't any that integrate with the Audi DIS, though some do with the more common vehicles like Vauxhall etc. It's a pretty pointless feature and you don't notice that it's not there when running a decent (non Audi) head unit.

    Thanks, this would have been my guess too. And yeah, it's not at all necessary to have one, but it wouldn't hurt either /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    You need an active antenna amp detailed below. All Audi radio's have an antenna amp built into the head unit, which you lose when going aftermarket. antenna amp
