Cool. Can you tell us about the build? Do you have access to any of the VW menus?


Would love to see one with a Sony XAV-100, XAV-300, XAV-1000 or XAV-5000

I'm mixed on the idea of an aftermarket head unit.


I have an Exec so I'm not sure aftermarket makes sense when Dynaudio is present. But I sure wish I could update to a newer cpu package with some customizations.


The one thing I love about the Sony (I put one in my Mk4) is how slick the interface looks. It's almost OE grade. The sound is pretty decent with the Monsoon amp though no where near as good as the Dynaudio.

the RNS head unit is okay, but Im an avid SiriusXM user, and the stock unit doesnt have a bunch of channels. Also my unit was very slow and i reset it several times. Plus with the aftermarket head unit i have more control over audio settings
