    Hey guys,

    Just got my first Audi today after wanting one for ages, went from a RX-8 so its quite a change!

    Its a 61 plate misano red Black Edition (2.0 170) and I'm loving it!

    Two quick questions if I may:

    - If I ask the dealer to swap the Concert II+ radio in it with a Symphony II+ radio in another used car (mines an ex demo) how much do you think I should be willing to pay? Cant find much on them through google for pricing etc.

    - This guys car (below) is identical to mine but has mudflaps, from my very limited knowledge I thought that the s-line bodies dont accept the Audi mudflaps. Can anyone in the know say if thats true because these look a great fit to me!

    Thanks again!
    Rich

    Hey mate!

    Car looks great!

    Get yourself the symphony and radio keys off eBay and swap it yourself! They charge about £70 per half hour labour at my local dealership.

    The BE can take mudflaps, I've bought some for my car just haven't fitted them yet. I paid £25 for the set.

    Don't forget the Audi keys to get the unit out :)

    I expect you will get the symphony quite cheap, most people will get the RNSe and put their old symphonys on the eBay?

    Welcome to the forum :icon_thumright:

    I will have an immaculate Symphony ii+ on eBay in next day or two and could code it to match your vehicle spec so it's just plug & play. PM me if interested.
