    Yes with the right adapters. You need a wiring adapter to feed the rear/sub amp, fascia adapter and aerial amp adapter for the radio.n And also radio removal keys. When removing the HU take out the glovebox and push the HU from behind once the keys are in position. Do not pull the HU out by pulling on the keys as this can knacker the spring clips and you can end up with the old HU jammed in the dash.
    Depends what year your car is as to whether it is ISO or Quadlock as Audi changed it around 2005

    Well I got it, and Discovered when installing the unit that there was a Sony Ericcsson handsfree kit from a previous owner that has been plumbed into the wiring, and as a result its not plug and play.

    Grrrr, Now I only have front speakers. and a feint humm from the speaker in the boot. Any ideas?
