    Is this an RNS-D or RNS-E?

    It's from a September 2007 B7.

    I've bought this car, and am collecting it this coming Saturday. In addition to the RNS-E, it also has a glovebox-mounted OEM CD-changer.

    Am I right in thinking that the CD-changer occupies the auxiliary input, and that I will not be able to install the iPod adapter that have in my current car?

    Should be a straight swap if you have the Ipod tray in your current car. The Ipod and the CD use the same interface.

    Problem is the ipod interface is **** unless you have the newer ami on the mk2 rns-e units which are substantially more expensive, I would just stick with SD cards that are used behind the motorised flip down screen mate.

    Hey, that's great, I didn't realise it had an SD card slot. Any idea if it will play AAC files, or will I have to reformat all my stored music as mp3 files before I copy them to an SD card?

    MP3 only & there are 2 slots behind screen which can take 2-4GB cards with an estimated max 512 files on them, cant use SDHC, has to be SD only.
