    I've just had the dealer on the phone, telling me that the DVD sat nav system on my new car is faulty. The new unit will take up to a month to arrive. Can someone tell me whether this unit will plug straight in, with no other adapters, so I can have some music, whilst I'm waiting for the new unit to arrive? Thanks

    This is an original Audi unit with single CD, single cassette and radio.

    Get them to put a unit in untill the new RNS-E arrives! I am sure they could get one from Audi CS or something!

    Yeah I've tried that, they reckon they can't source one from anywhere. They don't even want me to take the car, but I gave them the choice of letting me have the car, or lend me one, surprise surprise, they let me take my car

    Just kick up a stink for either a curtosy car or a temp radio... I am sure some of the used cars have a radio that will fit :)

    I doubt very much if that unit would even fit in the dash, let alone hook up to the loom. You'll have to take up singing instead ... :)

    I'd also tell them to stick the car up their arse. You're the customer and they should be bending over backwards to help you. As for it taking a month, that's balls, nothing takes a month to deliver from Germany.

    Whats apparently wrong with the DVD sat nav to render it faulty?

    Dealers told me that when Audi did their final checks on the car before it was shipped, the unit was found to be faulty and they didn't have another to fit??? So they shipped the car over anyway, minus the Sat Nav. The unit is on back order, will probably take 2/3 weeks to arrive.

    Hardcore son,
