    yep that one will fit no problem, only thing i would say is its a tad expensive considering what the newest RNS-E would cost you you might be better holding out for one of those?

    personally if i could afford it i would go for the new rns-e unit but the older one is a very good piece of kit which i intend to invest in sometime in the future when i can afford it :(

    so basically that RNS E i have mentioned will fit my car once i have done the dd conversion ? i emailed the seller and he said "this will not fit your car, you need to purchase the RNS E with the black knobs"


    what is all that about?

    Yes should work fine - you'll need the adaptor though I think.

    AUDI RNS-E adapter A3 A4 A6 Diversity antenna 0141 on eBay (end time 06-Dec-10 14:19:49 GMT)

    You'll also need to code the car (or get someone with VAGCOM to do it).

    You may want to look at SDS too if you have bluetooth car prep. Simple enough to do given the project you are taking on.

    After a certain year the quadlock connector is part of the cars loom but on older cars like mine and perhaps yours you need the adaptor connector, maybe they are supplying it too though i never saw it mentioned in the advert.

    Hardest part is swapping the cages across, a lot of pulling & sweating that you dont break anything. Have fun

    I was once where you are now, (single din concert) and you'll deffo need a quadlock adapter as stated, new buttons, climate control and GPS antenna. (if you haven't got them already).

    Best advice is take your time doing this and to have all parts needed and you'll be laughing at the end! :thumbsup:

    The adapter is used to make the radio tuner to work properly, original wire plugs onto there...
