The VW/Audi control protocols are, as far as I know, universal for a given radio model in all regions.

The wiring harness for the CD changer is used for the Phatbox, so it is either one or the other.

The connection comes out in the right side compartment at the rear, next to the fuel filler. (Azlinbackr, our “passenger side” is the opposite of yours!)

I have a Nav radio but didn’t have a CD changer from new. When I went to fit the Phatbox, there was no harness there at all, So check before you buy!

I got a cable made up and ran it to the left side compartment (My passenger side!), where there is a lot more space for the Phatbox.

The “proper” fitting looks awful. TOUAREG PHATBOX.pdf

The Phatbox itself is excellent in musical quality terms and everything I have only takes up 30% of the capacity.

I bought mine in the US for well under $400, about a quarter of the European rip-off price, don’t know what Oz prices are like.

The display is a bit disappointing as it only shows track numbers, with the box generating voice announcements as you step through.

I am very happy with mine and I am sure it will work with any original VW radio that supports the CD changer.
