    Charrie's AUDI S4 Avant

    This weekend the Nogaro sled got the RNS-E upgrade and I now have full OEM GPS Navigation functionality integrated into a pre-CANBUS car.





    Since my M3 and Porsche has OEM Navigation, I wanted my Nogaro sled to have it as well. Since completing this upgrade I have had a few people in the Audi S4 owner's group ask me how I did my retrofit... lots of reading was involved and some simple rewiring of the CANBUS wiring harness in order to get everything to work

    I now have the face plate to work on then this project will be complete...

    Hey Charlie, GPS is looking good. I like that controller knob on the right side of the screen.
    How was your transition from e46 cabin to S4 from ergonomics perspective? Was it a big difference? Is there any complains you have regarding Audi cabin and controls layout?

    Serg,

    There is a difference and it took me a few hundred miles to get accustomed to. The cruise control is on the headlight stalk on the left side of the steering wheel instead of on the steering wheel of BMWs.

    Turning on the headlights require movement of the stalk instead of a rotary switch like what I have on my M3 and Porsche...

    A few minor differences but not too hard to adjust to. Window switches are on the door arm rest just like the E9x series BMW.

    As for complaints....it would have been better to have the cruise control buttons on the steering wheel just like you see on E46 BMWs and have a rotary switch on the left side on the dash for headlights and fogs. Thatís pretty much my complaints... nothing too major regarding Audi cabin and control layout. Overall, this Audi is a lot of fun to drive and man do I have awesome viewing in all directions. No blind spots when driving this car

    Wait till you see this car in person my friend!!

    Thanks Charlie, just wanted to hear your opinion.
    Have control on the steering wheel is very convinient for sure.
    I am glad that you mentioned about more visibility. Changing lines on the highway in e46 is not ideal.

    I like the picture with the frost pattern on the hood.
    Did you change the headlights already?
