    my audi concert stereo all works fine until i go to turn the volume up or down. when i do this it seems to have a mind of it's own, either going really load and about blowing the speakers or really quiet.
    is this a problem that is easily fixable, or will it need replacing??
    your help would be much appreciated.

    Common fault. Occurs after 10,000 volume changes or something. Best thing to do it get a new HU.

    I think my Concert is just starting to do this. I've got the Bose audio system on my 2003 S3. What replacement head unit (must have CD) do you recommend?

    I too have the same volume problem! Drives me bonkers!
    Are aftermarket stereos compatible with the boot-mounted CD changer? My A3 came with it and I don't really want to have it and it not to work with a new stereo!
    Cheers
