    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.

    Had the same problem with mine a few months ago, used to send me crazy. Would get in the car and it was nice and quite then try and turn it up a little to hear the radio then im ears would be bleeding

    Ended up with a Alpine, never looked back

    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?

    Alpine CDE-103BT

    Its got bluetooth for phone use
    Connects to Ipod
    Great Sounds
    The Unit is red and looks good with the surround red lighting of the S3

    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
