    Hi All

    I have a quick question I'm sure you will be able to answer.

    I have a new A3 arriving in the new year, and have had thoughts of replacing the standard concert CD player with an aftermarket double DIN Sat Nav unit.

    All I want to know is:

    1, Will I need an adapter place for the facia? will a standard double DIN be a straight swap for the concert unit?

    2, Will an aftermarket unit cause any problems system wise? i.e. will I need to get fault codes removed or systems re-programmed?

    TIA

    Thanks.

    I've been doing a bit more digging this afternoon, and it looks like I'd be into a whole load of pain trying to fit an aftermarket one.

    Anyone got good* links to suppliers of the RNSE OEM unit?

    * not dealer prices

    Type Audi A3 RNS-E into ebay, and there you go my son.
