    Replacing a RNS-E with a Concert, is it possible?

    The grey 32 pin is probably your AUX. It can be repinned to the quadlock according to the wiring diagram on top of the concert. The blue fakra is GPS antenna. Not in use for the concert. And as stated in my previous post, you need to jump D15 to D16 to fire up the concert HU.

    Replacing a RNS-E with a Concert, is it possible?

    What two extra plugs are you referring to? The concert unit needs +12v on the Quadlock plug corresponding to D16 on the RNS-E. Random picture from Audizine, red circle around the mentioned pin.

    DIY: A3 8P reverse mirror dip mod

    I can now confirm that MCi p/n 98562 works correctly for passenger side mirror on my LHD vehicle. I also tried 1K0959578A since that part is more available, but motors had reversed polarity for both vertical and horizontal adjustment.

    DAB radio options

    Nice work. But AFAIK there is no VIM hack for the RNS-E mk2..?

    What have you done to your A3 (8p) this week

    My 2009 is S-line with interior trim and lowered suspension, but was sold without the exterior body kit option from factory. I replaced the rear diffuser a year ago, and now I finally managed to get a color matching S-line front bumper from a local salvage yard. Makes a nice difference up front...

    DAB radio options

    For RNS-E mk2 owners, there's a very good option! This kit from JUNA.pl simulates AMI interface, and gives you very OEM like integration. Everything is controlled from the head unit. If you have AMI and want to keep it, they have also made a switch to keep both options. Reception is very strong...

    DIY: A3 8P reverse mirror dip mod

    Update regarding mirror adjustment motor and part numbers: Since they have no VAG numbers on them, I have tried to figure out how to identify left and right units. I believe the following is correct. - 8 pin left side motor (8T0959577A) has MCi part number 98561 (top) and letters AE (bottom) -...

    DIY: A3 8P reverse mirror dip mod

    I bought second hand. But I think it is an RHD part (8T0959577A), since the left/right adjustment is inverted (wiring OK so no worries). They don't have the VAG part number on them. Thus I am replacing it soon and will be selling this one if everything seems to work correctly.

    Auto DAB - RNSE issues

    I have an AutoDAB box on my shelf that you can have for free (+ postage from Norway) if you want to try another unit. I had some issues with it not storing favourites, and later changed to another DAB solution.
