    i have a 2001 s3 and want to convert from my double din setup to single din.

    so far ive got most things i think. i have bought the inner single cage with climate control / underneath compartment / wiring harness for the sterio conversion. (i have a bose double din sterio set-up at the moment)

    what i want to know is , is the ariel going to be a straight fit into my aftermarket sterio or will i need an adapter for that also?

    if so could someone point me in the right direction of what i need to buy.

    many thanks

    steve

    Just a thought but find someone that want to go from single DIN to double DIN and arrange to swap parts one weekend.

    ill be selling the bits once removed. still not got round to doing it yet but will be done in the next few weeks. the sterio / cage / aircon unit and surround will be going altogether hopefully. have to see what interest is kicking about when its time. i dont need any single din bits as i have the lot now.
