    AUX input, possibilities audi concert 2007

    i have the same stereo as you. I made my own lead from a 3.5mm jack cable and using instructions online as to which pins it needed to be connected to. You will also need to use VAGCOM to switch the aux option on if not already done so. (double press the cd button to see if it selects AUX)

    Chrome fog ring mod

    No unfortunatley you cant just buy the rings on their own even though they come apart and have their own part number. Audi will only sell them as a complete package. Best bet is to look on ebay for a second hand set but be patient as some are still expensive considering all you want isn the...

    Chrome fog ring mod

    Afraid not as there are no clip holes on the earlier models... the rings and strips are bonded to the surround but its nots just a case of sticking them on as theres quite of bit of other work involved beforehand

    Sportback vs 5 door

    Thanks pluves1 that's what I thought and was the answer I was looking for. I'm just after some bars so i can fit cycle rack so I can transport my mtb bikes as I don't really want to go down towbar option and can't use rear mounted due to spoiler.
