    That is ridiculously cheap and a cracking find.

    It looks like you're missing the radio cage part of it but I'm not sure on the A3.

    I got a RNS-d at home for sale if you are interested.

    I'm not that sure on the 8L double din set up but I think there should be a centre bit in side the big hole that the radio clips in to.
    You can see the 4 bolt holes (2 either side) that it bolts in to and then the radio will slide in to that.

    The A4 B5 unit looks like this.

    Not sure if its the same for you guys.

    A RNS-D is a satnav unit. It looks like this.

    Sat nav, Radio, CD changer control and some other bits if you got the right units.
    I got one from a A8. It will fit with some modifications to the face plate.

    You need that bit. lol

    Take a look at the other switches in there.
    If they are all complete and not rubbed off, it would be worth taking them.
    They tend to rub off and go white.

    RNS-e if you want to go standard of a nice Pioneer/Alpine style unit will do.
