    check this site out they sorted mine out. They had to upgrade the head unit thin put AMI in glove box. I have run an extention cable from the glove box to the arm rest. If you search the site there is a thread all about it with pics

    I hae seen that sote before, but i was wandering if there was just something a little easier and less expensive. And i have checked again and there is defo nothing under the armrest apart from the 12 v out.

    You may be right, even if I could just control it from my iphone that would be fine for me. you would have thought that audi would have included a simple thing as an aux in as standard!

    One easy way is to use an FM transmitter

    FM transmitters are tbh useless these days, so many frequencies in use & constantly moving to unused frequency when on the move, one of the most worthless items I ever bought years ago tbh.

    Is your stereo an audi infotainment or MMI?
    If its MMI it shouldnt need a replacement head unit so should cost less

    I am picking my B8 A4 up on Wednesday, but when I viewed it I am sure there was an AUX jack in the centre console (under arm rest) ??

    I am assuming this will let me use my iphone for music but I will not be able to control it via MMI or steering wheel, but I am OK with that as have the symphony with SD slot
