    I converted mine to run with a Kenwood head unit. To do this you need a new cable and to re-flash the Phatnoise to run Kenwood firmware. Also Kenwood head units made 2008 onwards require an additional Kenwood switch box (KCA-S220A) to be used, pre 2008 Kenwood head units do not require the...

    Phatbox, CD changer cable install

    Its not actually a heat sink as dunk says its just cosmetic. Audi had to make it the same width as the OME cd changer to fit in the same hole. this is a nice conversion.
