You would need a wiring adapter for the stereo and a euro to american antenna adapter. Other than that the actual mounting bracket and trim should come with the new stereo unit.


thank you shaun for your reply is the wiring adapter pretty easy to find as the antenna adapter ?


Any major auto parts place should have them if your looking to do it yourself. I live in a SMALL town so I had to go to a car audio place and pay twice what the part is worth or order online. Even Wal-Mart's usually have them but where I live German imports only have a tiny following so its hard to find any VW parts.


thank you again will be getting busy as soon as this crazy weather breaks
