Looking to spend around £400-500 all in. I was looking at the fitting kits, I will also needs GPS fakra to smb adaptor, and double fakra to aerial adaptor.I’ve got a alpine ilx 700. CarPlay unit so I don’t need a gps antenna as I have unlimited data.
You’ll need a Bose harness adapter, facial adapter, probably a antenna booster for the radio and I had to get a cage as the alpine didn’t come with one.
Fitting an aftermarket may induce groundloop, which is quite common with Bose so you’ll have to run a ground from the amp to the headunit.
There are others out there with more bells and whistles but I’m a fan of alpine and liked the look.
How much are you looking to spend?
Get the fascia etc of amazon. Way cheaper than Halfords or anywhere else.
If you want no problems with your head unit I advise getting someone who does this for a full-time job fitting themI have purchased a Kenwood DMX7018DABs and the relevant bits to go with it. Will hopefully have installed over the weekend

Explain? You had issues? Tbf I am fairly handy so should be okay. Also went for the connects 2 module which is like £60 and means you don't have to mess around with rca cables etcIf you want no problems with your head unit I advise getting someone who does this for a full-time job fitting them
Most of which are Chinese branded or they have used the cheap adaptors which are known to cause issue. If it don't work as it should it will be going back and I will be jumping on the branded Chinese rnse lookalike as above.I have never had any problems with my head unit as I like the OEM Rns-e ( does what I need it for ) but over time I have seen so many posts about lads who have fitted Units off all sorts and then they come back asking why this isn't working ie front speakers, crackling noises, problems with Bose etc . That's why I say when it's electrical get the guys that know there way around a cars cause it can work out more costly in the long run .
I do wish you all the best and happy to hear you fit with no problems as it would be horrible to see another post about my head unit not working
It's this one:What fascia is that? Is your screen size 7”?
Ye you just need removal keys. Either get them online or go to Halfords and buy. Literally push keys in into each slot then pull stereo outCan i buy a kit to remove the cd player? Then i can get it removed will have a better idea what exactly i have. Yes i dont really care about having a non cd unit as I'd rather connect my mobile and radio anyway.
Is the Concert unit a single DIN, or Double DIN?Hi guys sorry to just jump in on this but I'm looking to put a android one in my car. How easy is it to put one in as i just have the audi concert in at the moment i have the audi a3 8p 2004. Any help and suggestions welcome

Can be an issue as a aftermarket can draw more power than std one plus the alternators aren’t filtered hence you can get the annoying whine.
Couldn't tell you, I didn't need any thing extra. The loom that was in the car attached to the rear of the stereo and everything was running fine from the start.Which cable did you use 6.3 or 2.2

People bad mouth the chinese Android Head units, but I can't fault mine. Having ODB Eleven installed also makes it a great scan tool built into the car.
Here is the kit you need (https://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/aud...scia-steering-bose-retention-fitting-kit.html) also keeps steering wheels controls if u have a multi-function steering wheel.
Also If you need help installing the headunit, follow this enfig video.
