VW AUDI Fitment Guide
Fitment guide for VW and AUDI cars. Lists all available installation options, and possible limitations.
In most AUDI 98-08 vehicles, a solid 3-in-1 factory connector blocks access to the CD changer port.
The factory connector must be removed to gain access to the CD changer port. If that is your case you need to use AUDS
harness that accepts the factory connector and plugs into the radio, leaving the CD changer port open for proper use of any interface adapter or auxiliary input converter (including GROM-AUX). Install into Audi A4 2008 with AUDS cable
