re: V8Q: Optional CD Changer Questions

I note the same situation based on having two '91 200q cars (one dead these
11 months, :( :( :(). The first car had an aftermarket (Pioneer) CD
changer. The present car has the OEM Audi official whizbang changer. There
is not a shred of "integration" difference to distinguish the functioning
of the two CD units with the Bose (gamma) head unit.
