Hi all,

Am looking at getting my 1st GTI in UK and am currently looking at optional extras.... going for the Leather, 18" alloys, DSG and then can't decide on the SAT NAV with ipod prep or getting the RCD500 and soundpck for ?675 and ipod prep.

Anyone have any info on what spec the sound system the SAT NAV comes with in UK as the dealer knows less than I do also the RCD500 details are vague I know it comes with 10 speakers and a soundpack, but what is the spec of the soundpack ie whats included and what does it improve on the standard kit I can't find any info anywhere on the net .... any advise would be greatly appreciated....

I've got the Soundpack in mine and it has 10 speakers and an amplifier under the passenger seat.

I've been driving around in an R32 for 5 days last week with the standard RCD300 and the sound was shocking (of the RCD 300, the V6 was glorious). The RCD500 and Soundpack isn't all that but it's a lot better!

I think if you have the Soundpack you can't replace the head unit so easily because no one seems to do an adaptor between the headunit and loom for the amplified system (but someone may correct me on that).
