#1 of 10 Dash kit for after-market nav system?
Jul 13, 2007 (7:13 am)
We love our new Eos, but are having trouble replacing the factory stereo. We didn't buy the luxury package because we had heard that we could get a better navigation system for less money. So we did, but now we cannot find the dashboard kit that will allow it to be installed. Surely we cannot be the only ones to want to replace the stereo in a 2007 Eos? Any suggestions? Thanks!

I was wondering if you could tell me how much you pay a month for your EOS, I am wanting the 32k model, and want to lease. I also would like to be in the 300's with 2-4k down at signing. Since posting in the EOS forums are slow, I would appreciate any help and advice.

I hear it uses the same dash opening as the Jetta, Rabbit, Passat, GTI, and GLI.
#4 of 10 2008 Volkswagen Eos dumps Dynaudio?
Nov 18, 2007 (5:15 pm)
I was pricing an Eos at the CarsDirect website, and in the Audio Options section I saw this:
Dynaudio Premium Sound System (DISC)
NO LONGER AVAILABLE for factory ordering as of November 4, 2007
Does anyone know if another premium sound package will be offered?
I've driven an Eos with the standard sound and wasn't really impressed (bit of a bass freak).

#7 of 10 Eos Top Remote Control
Apr 28, 2008 (8:39 pm)
Does anyone know if a top remote control is available for the 2008 Eos? Somewhere on the internet there was something about a remote available for the 2007, or the 2006 which was not available in the U.S. I own a 2008 Turbo
#9 of 10 Smart Top
Jul 06, 2008 (3:06 am)
I just bought a SmartTop controller from mods4cars.com.
The controller is a little relay-like module. I also bought the wiring harness to make it easier to install. The instructions for installation are on mods4cars.com also. Fairly straightforward. Harder to get under all the carpeting in the trunk than to actually make the electrical connection. Fortunately, ElitePro (associates of mods4cars.com) are local to me and they installed with me. They'd never done an Eos before and I never installed a SmartTop before so we did it together for $45.00 (discounted labor rate). I could do it myself now that I've done one, but didn't want to mess up the first time. Well worth the money to have this module. It had always been a disappointment that one reason to have bought the car was to watch the top go down and as the driver you really don't get to see it. Now by remote I can watch it! Good luck and enjoy!!!!!
#10 of 10 "Chipping" your Eos
Jul 06, 2008 (3:08 am)
Does anyone have any experience putting an ECU chip in their Eos. I have a 2008 2.0T Lux. Many chips avail on Ebay for not much money, but do they deliver?
