I have Gallardo RNS-E faceplate. WTT for b7 A4 RNS-E faceplate.

I had the opportunity to acquire a RNS-E Unit (8E0 035 192 J) off a Gallardo.

Unfortunately the faceplate doesn't fit perfect in my b7 a4. Looking to swap with someone interested. I know there are a lot more RNS-E's for Audi's than for Lambo's. I'm located in SoCal.

If the part number begins 8E0 then it was originally an A4 unit, so it's faceplate must have been swapped to a Lamborghini one by/for the seller.

ahh, that explains the audi logo on the actual unit. guess i'm returning it to its original state.

will update this post with photo as soon as it uploads from my iphone.

petroldave: sorry to go off topic but do you know how to identify if the rns-e unit was originally bose or non-bose?
i've been google/forum searching for hours and ended up here w. a new account :)

You are in luck! I have a 2004 Gallardo and I want this radio. I am about to buy an A3 nav unit off ebay in the $489 to $499 range + shipping. I could buy the A3 unit and swap faceplates (PITA) or I could buy your unit and you could buy one that fits your car, or let me know another alternative. Look on ebay for "Audi navigation OEM" and you'll find a bunch in nice condition. Give me an email reply and I'll share my phone# with you.

It's possible to swap the units, and here's a link with pictures of the process. The issue I have with swapping faceplates is that there's a flex circuit involved and there's always a chance of breakign the little plastic clips which happened the first time I ever worked with those flex circuits.

Thanks!
