    It converts from multiple iso connectors to the all in one quadlock connector on the rear of the rns-e, say from concert unit to rns.

    Have Concert, BOSE, FBMFSW and Bluetooth with Sharkfin.

    What do I need apart from the Head unit? And rough cost for any bits I need to interface with the car.

    Obviously beer tokens would apply for VAGCom assistance. Couple of guys have kindly offerred already.

    Car is a 57 MY07 btw if that makes a difference.

    Cheers
    Paul

    I think Paul should be 1st in line as he keeps missing the units for sale, stop his whingeing then, lol

    I think as yours is double din you have quadlock already, only thing to consider is the antenna system

    Paul mine is an 07 S3 and the rns-e was a straight swap and coding via vag com. I just put the antenna above the speedo and have never had any problems. Hope this helps.

    I'll be willing to pay the 450 quid plus postage to South Africa if the deal with Paul falls through.

    Please let me know if you willing to sell to me or know someone who's selling theirs as I am really looking for an RNS-E unit in good condition and don't want to go through eBay.

    How easy is it to locate the Antenna, dont want to pull the dash to bits. In fact I was hoping to do it when the head unit was going in.

    Appreciate any ideas. (for a techno-numpty BTW)

    Cheers
    Paul

    Bloody easy, just find some flat metallic area in the dash behind the rns or up to the left/right & slap the mofo on there mate, easy peasy even for technonumnuts, lol

    I have finally managed to get hold of a unit and hope to fit it this weekend, have been following the posts carefully but wondered whether anyone could confirm if the TMC traffic alerts will work or do I need to activate anything?

    I have procured a VCDS cable so should have all the gear (but no idea) to access everything.

    Any clues?

    My TMC sometimes works, mostly there is a line through it. I guess it depends in the signal strength? When working, pressing the button brings up road works but not sure if it would divert me if I was on a guided route.

    Ok thanks. I have an A6 loaner at the moment whilst mine is in for work. Its TMC seems to be flaky too.

    Was the coding fairly straight forward with VCDS?

    I've got 6 disc changer as well, rarely use it. I'm SD'd up :) Good luck with it. Good job to hear you holding onto the car for longer :applaus:

    Pah, CDs are so yesterday.:)
    Yeah, nothing else I fancy car wise, the other stuff I like is even more to run than an S3 (which aint cheap) and I cant justify to myself spending any more money than I already do!
    This thing only has 15K on the clock and will tick all the boxes once the RNSE is fitted so Ive decided to break my own habit and keep it for a while (previous record is 18months).
    Regular wash and vacuum and enjoy it!
    Works in nicely with the realease of the RS3 to run out the 8P platform to -- cue Jamiekip....

    cheers

    Will i need to `move pins` or will the RNSE run with BOSE in a straight forward plug n play fashion?

    I'm becoming notrious for my belief in an RS3! hahaha

    I may end up doing the same thing as you actually Paul.
    I'm due to change my car next March and I'm toying with what to do, because IF they do announce the RS3 I'll be ordering one, but I'd probably need a car for another 9-12 months before that arrived.
    Given where I have got to with mod's on my car, I may as well put a bit more money in to it and keep it... so probably take it to stage 2+.

    Alternatively, I may get a 'toy' for 12 months, something that won't depreciate much. I know someone who recently got an M3 CSL - I don't think they would depreciate much more, maybe an early 997 C2S, M3 or even a C63AMG if they come down to the right price in 10 months time (though I think that would continue to depreciate like a beatch!). BUT, will all of those, like you say, running costs will become a factor.

    I do love the S3 though... it just ticks all the boxes for me.

    Ah man, have you got satellite ears or what, anyone mentions RS3(oops I did it again, cue britney) you're there on the spot, lmao

    Well quadlock on both I believe, just compare the labels on the top of rns & the old unit to see if the pins match up Paul, it really is very easy mate, no implying you're thick either, just pin to pin couldnt get any simpler & you're welcome to ring my 0906 number whenever you like :undwech:
