    you need a new double DIN cage to house the RNS-E new facia surrounds and a double din air controller unit (although you can cut the exiting one to shape if your careful) and some VAG-COM coding

    ...and some wiring.

    And either a sharkfin antenna or a clamp-on FAKRA antenna.

    Also the switch panel around the cup holder, plus new switches etc.

    It sounds a lot but actually all the parts can be had off ebay or a breaker or even Audi at reasonable cost. I think I paid £150 for all the parts, including a replacement climate control unit.

    I did it last weekend and although it does take some time, it isn't a very technical job to do.

    Sorry mate, not to hand, do a search, including the RossTech wiki page.
    As the coding will be specific to the options on your car there isn't a general set of codes to use.

    I'm still to get mine coded...can anyone help with Vag Com in S London?
