Thanks for this John. I called my Audi dealer yesterday to order one (in English) but they don't have that part number on their system.
The part number they do have for an RNS-E manual is 271 562 729 20. But they were unable to say whether that manual included SDS, and once I've ordered it I can't return it.
Has anyone else got a manual for their RNS-E, which includes SDS in it? If so, I'd really appreciate it if you could look on the back and check the part number, and the date it was issued (e.g. 05/05).
I've noticed from another thread that some people have an older manual without SDS, which has the part number 251 562 729 20. Given the following, I reckon the one they quoted actually has SDS in it. The 3 part numbers start with:
251 - older manual, no SDS
261 - John's manual, with SDS
271 - part number quoted by my dealer.
So I might actually take the plunge and buy one, assuming that part numbers with a higher number (271 rather than 261 or 251) are updated versions of the original. On this basis I'm hoping it will have SDS in it!
