The bose radio units from the 92-95's can only be swapped into a
sedan, not an avant...they are pretty much drop-in on the sedan,

   The avant does not have powered speakers...and the bose radios only
output line-level audio, not nearly enough to drive the speakers.
I'm somewhat amazed the connectors are even the same.

Just buy yourself a nice Sony/Blaupunkt/Pioneer/whatever head unit
and drop it in...the quality of just about any CD head unit these
days is so infinitely better than the old Audi head units...mostly
because its CD vs cassette...
