    When i bought my A3 I noticed the tax disc holder has a small black wire going to it, it then trails down the window and down the back of the dash what's the wire for ? im guessing the tax disc holder is a Audi one ? its black leather good quality just wondering about the wire, its it for the central locking or radio antenna ? lol :)

    Don't think that's a standard Audi thing so to speak.

    I've seen ones that were GPS antennas. They were extremely fugly.

    Mines got that thing too.

    I remember a while back there was a 'phase' of tax discs being stolen from cars, as well as other stuff off course, and sticking the holder to the window using the wire to prevent a 'quick steal' was something brought up at the time.

    Don't quote me on that however, it's just something I seem to have a vague memory off.....(it is Friday afternoon however, and my mind starts to wander at about this time off day)

    Do you have RNS-E (the DVD sat nav)? Seem to remember some people couldn't get good enough signal putting the GPS aerial behind the cluster so used these instead…

    Weellll, I do remember asking the dealer to remove the phone kit that was installed in mine. So this could be the answer - not sure if the OP has the same ? :icon_thumright:
