    I've currently got a Delta CC in my '97 A8 with BOSE & 6cd Changer.

    Would a concert unit be a straight plug and play on this cd changer? Or would i need to modify the 13 pin cable?

    I've got a phatnoise which i'm hoping to install hence the need for a concert unit. But will need to know if the concert will replace the Delta CC without any problems before plugging in the Phatnoise system.

    I currently have a concert unit but it's broke. I was conned on eBay when i bought it.


    Cheers,

    Dan

    The Delta uses the old style 8 pin bus cable IIRC, not sure on the A8 but my 97 A4 had an 8 pin bus, so you'd need the newer style 13 pin cable with the Concert if that is the case.
    All the other connections are the same, but try and make sure the Concert is a pre-2000 model otherwise you'll end up with CANBUS ignition on problems and the HU will only stay on for an hour at a time.

    My cable is the 13 pin already fitted, so hopefully it's just a case of plug and play then.

    Thanks.

    Should be. The only other issue is the fascia panel. concerts from different Audi's do have slightly different facia's to match the vehicle i.e. one from an A3 or TT won't necessarily fit/match the A4/S4
