Re: Another A4 gripe
The trunk mounted CD changer in my '98 A4 2.8 quattro is the same
brand and model used in the Mazda Millennia S my wife used to have.
It has the same problems - extreme sensitivity to ALL conditions
(humidity, heat, vibration)! Changing lanes on the freeway causes the
CD player to skip!
This unit is NOT an Alpine (or a Pioneer), but a Panasonic. My wife's
car (a BMW 328i with the sport suspension) has an Alpine, and that
unit has none of the problems of my A4's CD player. I would assume
you could replace the Panasonic with an Alpine, but I am disappointed
that one has to do this in the first place.

The Audi changer in the A4 is an Alpine unit. I don't know if Kenwood uses
the same changer, but I doubt it. The Pioneer magazine has a reputation for
scratching discs during operation but this may be fixed in newer models.
