    There isn't a commercially available double din facia for the 8L... the one for the A4 can be modded though

    I had a double din unit in mine when I first bought my car... I ended up doing a swap with another member for a single din setup and used an Alpine headunit on my Bose system using an Autoleads PC9-408 adapter lead... a lot of people say this lead is rubbish... personally never had any issues with it and used it for quite a few years before I got around to fitting the rest of my kit..

    There are a few others on here that have fitted double din units though so they may well pitch in and be able to help you further

    That looks like it should be ok, it's roughly the same shape/size

    hi guys a new update/problem lol. ive got the fasica all sanded down and fitted, new problem i plug it all in with the wire harnes etc and it turns on then turns off, any ideas?. i have the right harness i think. i went into the shop and the guy sorted it all out for me. even pluged it all together for me so all i had to do was add the remote for the bose to work ( i have half bose on the rears and sub). i am thinking he has given me the wrong harness.
