    Noise on tickover when cold

    definitely the hydraulic tappets - you could try using an engine flush such as that by Forte - the problem happends as the lifters get caked in oilly crud over time, thus stopping oil getting in to them as soon as would normally be the case - hence the ticking noise which is un-lubed metal-on-metal

    no power/link from HU to CD changer

    even though it's a non Audi unit, a converter BUS lead was fitted and it worked perfectly with the previous Concert unit, so the fact that it is not an Audi changer is not the issue.......or shouldn't be!
