    Ive currently got a Xplod 50Wx4 MDDX-CA680X Head unit with MD/CD Changer control. I want to wire up a cd auto changer to this as im sick of recording my own discs. Ive got a w reg 1.8 Turbo Quattro Sport A3 with the Bose system set up. Please recomend or if any of you are selling, a good changer for this. Also what cableing and wires will i need extra. Are there wires pre installed into this model of A3. There is a round pin plug thats next to the Bose sub attached to the panel in the enclosure. Cheers

    You'll need to run the CD-BUS cable for the new changer, whatever is compatible with the head unit.
    The existing Audi cable is only compatible with the old HU and Panasonic changers. It's sh*te quality anyway so I wouldn't use it even you could plug it into an aftermarket HU. Running a new one is only a 15min job as you should be able to tuck it under the trim rather than take all the trim out and do it professionally.
