Basically i need to replace the stock with one aftermarket radio (pioneer or any other), could anyone that have done this give me some idea on how to do it, is there any kit i can order so i can just plug and play the original arness to an aftermarket stereo??

You can buy an adapter off ebay for a tenner, if you have the bose system you need another adapter aswell.

Google "car audio security" there website has every audio lead you can think of you can even phone them to make sure your getting the rights ones.

hi mate, you'll also need to buy an audi A4 stereo facial adapter and trim it to fit if your getting a double din, as they don't sell them for the A3/S3

update, i just received the kit and the bezel doesn´t fit well, here's a pic on how it looks like, as yo can see, the side of the bezel hast 2 other pieces from the OEM radio, besides, i had to cut the sides of the bezel to make it fit, don't like those 2 other pieces, I'm looking for a bezel like the one showing on this video:
