Help with parts for RNS-E, BT and satellite radio retrofit

    Hey guys,

    I’ve been scouring the forums looking for a proper thread, but I haven’t found an exact match, so I’m creating this one. I apologize if this has been answered before.

    First off, I have a 2007 Audi A3 3.2L S-line Quattro with the Symphony II (I believe) audio system and Bose speakers, but no BT or Satellite radio.

    What I want to do is retrofit (1) an RNS-E, (2) BT and (3) a satellite radio, with OEM parts (and I would like the U.S. versions of those parts, not the European versions, if they are different).

    I’m not looking for a guide, but I was hoping someone could confirm all of the parts that I would need, and confirm that everything is compatible, and where I could acquire the parts if possible.

    RNS-E retrofit
    For the RNS-E retrofit, I suspect that everything I need will come in this package, correct?

    Bluetooth retrofit
    I’m not mistaken, these are the parts that I would need for the BT retrofit:

    PHONE INTERFACE BOX: 8P0 862 335 J
    MICROPHONE: 8L1 862 373A
    ANTENNA: 8P0 035 503E
    Harness (?)

    Is that correct? Anything else I’m missing? Do I need another harness besides the one that comes in the RNS-E retrofit package I mentioned above? Is so, can someone link to it for me?

    Satellite radio retrofit
    Satellite radio receiver: 8E0035593D or 8E0035593D
    Harness (?)

    I am assuming that the antenna that comes with the RNS-E retrofit package I linked to above is all that I would need. Would I also need another harness as well?

    First of all, congrats on the initial research. So many people make threads without any prior research, but as you've done your ground-work, myself and others will be more than happy to assist you the rest of the way.

    First of all, we need to know if your Concert is a ISO or Quadlock type. The old Concert is ISO and the new Concert (II+) is a Quadlock. The changeover happened in 2007.

    Does your concert look like this?
