Default Audi Symphony 1 to RNS-D upgrade on an A8 D2

Hello all!

So I've been thinking about upgrading my existing stereo head unit in my car (symphony 1) to the (I believe) European spec RNS-D unit. I recently got a pretty good deal on one. However as per teenager usual I didn't do proper research before ordering it. I've heard from about two sources that the swap is easy and nearly plug and play. As I looked deeper into the project though, I think there might be a few issues. The first being my fantastic car came with Bose premium audio, which I've heard has a separate amp. Connecting the sound seems to not be as easy and I was wondering if there are any wiring diagrams out there to get me started on what needs changing. Other than that, since I'm deep into this project already I figured I might as well add Bluetooth directly into the stereo. I haven't ordered that part yet, as I cant seem to find a good one. Which would you recommend? Also to anyone who's actually done this, anything else I should know about? I've seen it done, I know its possible. Thanks!
