    A3 2010 Sportback Black Edition Bluetooth

    Maybe an easy one this... Will this car be fitted with Bluetooth as standard? It's got standard headunit.

    I'm picking the car up tomorrow... If it's not standard is there a way to check for it and also how much roughly would it cost to get something fitted?

    Thanks

    Mines got it fitted - best way to check, go & do a Bluetooth search & you'll find one called Audi_hv or similar! this should be your Bluetooth connection!

    Was it part of the standard equipment do you know or will it be some have it and some don't?

    Also so when I pick it up start the car the search from iPhone and see what happens?

    Dunno if it's part of the standard equipment, I think it was on the BE's.

    Yep do the scan from your iPhone, mine worked a treat - not sure of the pairing code though, it may be 0000 or 1234, the manual will tell you

    He has the old style 7 spoke alloys in titanium. Also his steering wheel didn't have a silver ring in the insert around the Audi badge.

    I'm sure the Audi brochure I looked in was for 2011 model year, it certainly wasn't earlier than that. Best bet, pop out n have a scan

    You might have been lucky and whoever owned it could have specified it on the build. Not too expensive to retrofit if you need it anyway. The Audi system is very good indeed. Better than any aftermarket solution i have used in all my cars

    That's all correct. I started looking or my BE when 11 plates came out and they started fitting the rotors half way the through MY11 if I recall. At this point they also started fitting BT low and I ended up opting for BT high which includes the cradle in the arm rest and voice control

    OP could be lucky. Only one way for him to find out

    Thanks for all the info... will do as you said tomorrow when I have started the car and search for Audi - Hopefully I am lucky!! If am not for any reason how do I go about getting bluetooth fitted (audi genuine one) and roughly how much would it cost? I know I won't be able to fit myself as I'm not really good with things like that...

    Bluetooth upgrade

    Or if your buying the car from an Audi dealer i'd haggle with them to fit the OEM bluetooth for you!

    Sometimes already included as part of a tech pack or something. I.e. You ask for sat nav and it gets thrown in. Just a thought I could be wrong

    The OEM BT is excellent as well. Worth the extra money over an aftermarket kit IMO

    Possibly, my first 09 did not have anything extra, my 11plate has a tech pack, auto lights, cruise, windscreen wipers etc.

    I didnt know this was installed until I read a thread here 3 years ago that mentioned doing the bluetooth search when the ignition was first turned on......
