First posting, great site, very informative!

I'm thinking of retrofitting an RNS-E to a new 8P Audi S3. I have 3 questions:

1. The car will be fitted with the new double-DIN Concert III head unit, with BOSE. Can anyone confirm whether the wiring loom for this will be the same as that for a Symphony III for the purpose of retrofitting an RNS-E ?

2. The car will also come with GSM phone prep, and will have the "shark fin" antenna to which I understand the phone prep is connected. Do cars that have phone prep but do not have standard-fit RNS-E units still come with the extra cable to the "shark fin" for the GPS ?

3. The standard RNS-E in the new S3 has an S3 logo on the startup screen when it is switched on. I assume that this is achieved by a firmware upgrade, which is probably on a unique nav DVD for the S3. Am I correct in this assumption, and if so, would obtaining an OEM S3 nav disk enable the required firmware upgrade to allow the logo to be displayed?

Thanks in anticipation.

S.

2. No the cable isn't fitted to the front of the car, just a very short length above the headlining.
