    so if i got the sat nav on and music on the sd can i still listen to music?
    on the pioneer the sat nav had a 3d mode does the rns-e?
    so is there any thing extra i have to do so the directions come up on the dash
    thanks

    Yeah you can still listen to music fine.

    Yes there is a 3D mode, but as far as I know, this is only on the actual junctions?

    And no, the DIS will be connected automatically.

    If you already have a double din frame (where the RNS-E will go) then the mod will only take 30 minutes to do.

    Make sure you get an RNS-E no earlier than a "Q" version. I have the VIM Hack and SDS DVD if you need a copy.

    You will need to tell us if you have Bose or not, as the Quadlock adapter will need a few pins moving. This adapter can be got from Kufatec.de
    http://www.kufatec.de/shop/product_...trofit---Harness---Audi-A3-8P---8P-Sport.html

    Iit will be the best £600.00 you will ever spend on your car.

    also, does anyone have a part number for the rns-e "q version" as my local audi dealer in roermond, germany says they can order me one if i have the part number. As i am tax exempt maybe this won't cost THAT much more than an ebay one and it would be new.

    A brand spanking new unit from Audi will cost far far more than a used item from eBay, regardless of tax status.
