    the majority of vag cars are actually wired so as permanent live is ignition live and vice versa
    this often causes a lot of confusion

    yes thats o.k
    the only thing to remmeber is now that you have connected the red and yellow wire you will have to turn off the stereo yourself
    even when the ignition key is not in the car
