    a little update, the app radio extensions hack has is going through a beta where the system can control the iphone on unsupported apps. I have tested it and it works although there are some bugs to it. this is looking very promising!
    I wish there was a way of having one app running on the system screen and a second app on the iphone screen.

    there are 2 kits depending on the year of your car, both will support the bose and non bose option:

    2004-2006
    Audi A3 (2004-2006) Double Din Car CD Stereo Fitting Kit Fascia, Stalk Control | eBay

    2006-2009
    Audi A3 (2006-2009) Double Din Car CD Stereo Fitting Kit Fascia, Stalk Control | eBay

    You just need to specify what make stereo you have so that you get the correct patch lead to get the MFSW to work correctly.

    also here is the extra kit you can get with the adjustable cage fitting to get a 'flush' fit

    Awesome thank you! A3 is late 2011, do I need the second kit or something different altogether?

    well the difference between the 2 kits is that the second one is a quadlock to ISO connector and the 2011 cars still use quadlock s should be the same kit. if any doubts just call dynamic sounds and confirm

    yh it hasnt happened lately. i read on the avic forums that it had something to do with full screen apps but as i dont really use my iphone on the stereo (i have a dedicated ipod for music in the car) i just make sure i kill the music app from working in the background (using sbssettings with the processes button on my jailbroken iphone) and it seems to be fine.
    im not sure what the pioneer unit is actually doing to the iphone that makes it heat up.

    Does anyone know if this will fit my 2011 A3? It says 2006-2009..

    Audi A3 (2006-2009) Double Din Car CD Stereo Fitting Kit Fascia Steering Control | eBay

    Asked the seller and the reply was

    'As long as the radio shape has not changed it will.
    I have no newer information on 61 plate Audi so i will assume it will.'

    Does anyone know if it has changed?

    ahh i forgot to update that on here...

    so i started trimming the outer trim down from behind until i got it to level up with the fascia and then i adjusted the adjustable cage (not the standard pioneer one) to push the stereo back and this is what i have now.







    I will be replacing the trim as it has bowed over the year and half that i have had it but it still looks decent.

    Just finished installing mine, have fitted all the cables just to get it working etc so still have to fit the cage, all I can say is WOW!!! First thing I noticed was the now amped front speakers! Its like having two small subs in there. LOVE IT!

    Ive got one question, what the hell does this cable do?!



    Also have a couple of RCA cables and am unsure where they go, Ash can you help at all?

    also do you have bose in your car? if so then you need to connect the RCAs, if not then you dont need them at all as the speakers are wired into the plugs.

    which cage did you get? the original pioneer one or the adjustable one?

    You don't need the pads, the gold plates go on the side of the headunit with the metal supports holding them into place with the screws going into the side of the unit
    make sure the gold plate had the teeth facing outwards and the clip facing towards front of the headunit

    I have just had this unit fitted into my 08 TT. The unit is great, but the iPhone 5 screen makes the Pioneer's look a bit naff in comparison. Anyway back to the OP's topic...... I too can not get the App Radio to work, I have the additional CA-IW.201S iPod/iPhone 4/4S to USB Connection Cable and I am using the Apple 32pin to New connector adapter to connect to my iPhone 5.

    Now here are three things which may be affecting the App Radio opperation
    1) The CA-IW.201S iPod/iPhone 4/4S to USB Connection Cable has to be plugged into USB 1 on the back of the unit (how we are supposed to know the difference between 1 & 2 I don't know.
    2) The Apple 32 (iPhone 4 connector) pin to new connector adapter dosn't support video.
    3) The Pioneer Head Unit needs to be upgraded to the new firmware so as to be compatible to iOS6

    Any thoughts?

    Also dose anyone know how to flash the new firmware to the 8400? in other words can it be done via SD card?
