    Hi,

    I've just bought a 2005 A4 B7 with a pretty basic concert HU (I think it's the DIN I), it has the AC unit underneath and then a gap between the AC and the ash tray.

    Can someone tell me how easy it would be to change the HU to a RNS-E unit and drop the AC down so there is no gap? or even if this is possible?

    Cheers

    Chris

    Been asked many times, you need a double din cage to fit rsne unit, you can go two ways with the climate control unit, to keep costs down you can trim the face plate on your existing one as it sits lower.
    A new unit us alot more costly.
    I've seen them trimmed down and done correctly you can't tell.

    NHN does this conversion.

    NHN (nigel) is a member on here who specialises in VAG cars.

    Double din cage from the dealers don't think like they are that expensive.
