Hello: I have spent a few hours looking at your forum, yes hours. Lots of info...Unfortunately something with the search can't get me to the direct answer. Which I am sure is here. I found photos for one (not the other)of the installs with A3 small split radio, but the new radio one big rectangle looks easier. However there are no photos for that install. Its seems like a trade secret ...Seriously though, 1. If I am going to trade up to an audi and I had the option of one radio versus the other which one is easier? is my assumption correct? 2. Some vendors here say the navi they will sell you doesn't need a "vag-com" work up. that its pre-coded. Does that mean that you plug it in and your good to go? 3. Do these vendors also give you the pin code too? 4. Does the Navi aftermarket give you real time traffic too? My concern is that I don't have much of a garage space here in NYC, and would need to work on the car in the street hence easy and fast is important. Or, I might wake up to find something missing. thank you very much davenyc Someone one will say use the search feature here, but trust me I did.
