    Default who for head units?

    been quoted £800 to supply and fit a head unit in a 2012 Audi A3, by Skidz in Falkirk.......which I feel is just a tad pricey.,



    Any other companies recommendeded?



    thanks

    Depends on the price of the head unit and how much they are taking for fitting

    You only need two tools in life WD40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should use WD40 and if it moves and shouldn't use Duct Tape.

    Iíve fitted lots of HU to Audiís over the years, itís very straight forward, just get the correct loom and itís very much plug and play with most.

    If you get the correct wiring harness they will work, most Audiís came with 2 bose options one was half speakers (front only) the other was full, what you usually find is that even with the correct harness the tears are not adjustable in terms of fade etc
