  1. Hi Guys I have some troubles getting my RNS-E to work properly in my RS4 B5, i was kinda hoping you could help me out here...

    I know this has been done a lot of times with some slight things that don't work 100% like the "clock issue" but my retrofit doesn't seem to work ok at all.

    I got the plug and play harness from ebay and bridged the can signals @ the TMC box under the dash,so far so good.

    Next thing i did was coding the RNS-E expecting it to work ok, but no luck.

    The RNS-E doesn't start up but I hear it trying to,now when i remove the plug which contains the can signals and I press the on-off swich it start up without asking for a code with a very faint sound from the front left speaker,after it has started up and I reconnect the can signal plug it seems to work ok.

    If i switch on the lights of the car , the lights of the RNS-E do not light up.

    Also the RNS-E doesnt react to the ignition on of off...

    Does anybody recognise these "symptoms" ?

    I would really like to get it to work properly.

    TIA for the input.

  3. Wow, just had a look at that, looks mental :eek: how the feck does that deal with upscaling normal 16:9 TV?

    I'm not a real tech guy but from what I understand this TV's got a PC onboard to recalculate the image from 16:9 to 21:9.

    Powerfull MOTHA this...


  4. I did this:

    You'll need a bridge or jack stands to get the cars front up.

    After jacking the car up remove the front wheels and remove the inner wheel well ,after that you can see the back side of the headlights and simply remove the lights etc etc....

    I've also tried to change the lights from the enginebay but that was horrible...


  5. It's not really a matter of budget but keeping the car as original as possible.

    But the exhaust is really REALLY silent,as you guys know.

    My thought was to delete a mid section muffler.

    Although I have never seen the underside of the A8 :o so I don't know if it has one...or more..
