    Fit a Symphony / Concert II+ headunit from a late B7 - Get the wiring adaptor and Ipod interface from Kufatec.

    Looks all standard + greatly increased sound quality.

    I have a Dension 100 - full control from steering wheel/radio (mimics a 6CD changer) and track names in the DIS. Brilliant bit of kit.

    YEs I think that's what he means, I have that in mine and the sound quality is a lot better... not (yet) compatible with B6 MFSW though (except volume controls)... I'm working on it!

    EDIT: Climate unit just needs trimming and you need a connector from Kufatec... the seller obviously isn't on a forum!!

    Yep, exactly what I mean.
    If you have a double-din Symphony unit, it just slides straight in with the addition of a wiring loom adaptor from Kufatec.
    Kufatec also do the adaptors for the MF-steering wheel & I-pod.
    Slightly more expensive option but its worth it for the looks, sound upgrade and OEM-ness (gets rid of the tape-deck which makes the interior feel abit more up-to date)

    If you have the single-din concert unit I believe you need to remove the existing centre console & replace for one with a double-din slot.

    Here is mine;

    Is bluetooth an option?

    Saves you from being stuck with a iPhone interface, you can also use other phones, tablets and future iPhones when they change the plug again.
