    Yes it will be compatible & of course you need a double din setup before doing anything else.

    Rubbish, only faulty units cause this & that's few & far between.

    I supply/fit these systems.

    Hey Ryan,

    You'd be better off with RNSE mk1 for least hassle and cost and I assume you already have a double din unit in your A3?

    Nigel (Username NHN) can provide you with one I'm sure and if you fancied the newer unit, yes that's quite possible but would need to update a few parts and aerial module for FM reception. Again Nigel can advise on this if your interested (he fitted mine). Top bloke. Just drop him a PM.
