    I'm wanting to fit a later stereo with the chrome buttons to my 06my but i'm not sure what i need as there seem to be so many differences.
    I've read i need an aerial adapter, wiring block but i've read the newer model has an amplifier in the tailgate and without this i'll get a poor signal?

    Can i buy the amplifier and will it fit in the tailgate or will i need to drill/ stick it in there (are holes already in place? does it replace whatever is already there?)

    I've been offered just the stereo (6 disc) for £100 so how much would everything else cost?

    Cheers

    Should be a straight swap on an 06 plate if you are fitting a later Audi HU. Audi changed to quadlock around 05, but I guess you need to check yours if it's an early 06 as there was quite a crossover, I've seen 05's quadlock and ISO.

    You will need new aerial amps in the boot. Otherwise you will not get reception for radio. It will be ok for 30 sec's 'ish , then just cut to very poor reception. As said, see Johns3's guide in the faq's (it is for rns-e fix, but you need to do the reverse of what he has done).You could do a swap with somebody that is looking to fix their aerial issue with rns-e,to keep costs down.

    I bought an rns-e harness from ebay, and the aerial adapter. Small wiring change to the harness. 1 wire piggybacked to another.

    It will then work properly. You will not need vcds to any coding.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi, we spoke before, I have the stereo that you are looking for and the adaptor for the quadlock and aerial, pictures are in the classifieds. Could do the wholelot for £100 plus delivery, can't be bothered to put on ebay! Letme know.
