    Tape only is a chorus stereo I think, which is a single DIN. A symphony stereo is twice the size so it wouldn't go in easily.

    I know things like the cup holder and stuff are removed to fit the double DIN steroes - someone may ahve done it on here before though.

    Correct - the Symphony II is a double-DIN unit. You can buy a double-DIN cage to retrofit, but as well as the cup-holder you will need some different buttons to go next to the hazard lights button. The climate control panel can then be trimmed down to fit, or (more expensive) you can buy the double-DIN version.

    If you're keen and skilled enough to go to that much trouble however, I'd recommend retrofitting the RNS-E sat nav instead. Most people who have fitted the double-DIN cage have only done this to fit the RNS-E; it's probably too much hassle just for the Symphony units.

    Just as a follow-up question, did you send me a question on eBay for a Symphony II unit? I sold mine last Sunday and recall someone asked me if it would fit a 2004 A3.

    If you are just looking for a single din cd head unit you can usually pick up the Concert II on ebay for around the £80-90 mark. That should be a straight swap...I think.
