I just went through this myself for my '97 A4. The answer (unfortunately)
is NO it won't work. There is a company (sorry I misplaced the name &
ph number) that Auto Stereo dlrs go to to get harness adapters for this
sort of thing but when I called them they said they would not have an
adapter until sometime Q1 1997! Plus it (apparently) is not a simple
wiring change, but requires some electronics & would cost $70 to $100.
I gave up and bought the Audi changer from my dealer. I got it for $595,
plus $25 for the mounting bracket. I figured it cost me ~$200 extra, but
saved me the installation hassles and doing without my 'tunes' for 4
If you want the name of the company, just go to your local auto stereo
specialist & ask. Note this company does do adapters for many other
