    Cd multi changer fitting advice

    If its a C6 and has MMI Basic then it can't be added as the Basic doesn't use MOST.

    If its Basic+ or High then it's a straight swap with no coding.

    Cd multi changer fitting advice

    How many MMI buttons do you have?

    4 or 8?

    If you have 4 it's Basic

    If you have 8 and a central RED screen above the centre air vents you have Basic+

    If you have 8 and a central COLOUR screen above the central airvents you have HIGH.

    I'm sorry? all MMI cars in the A6 C6 chassis regardless of type are MOST and can have a 6 CD changer.

    Only difference between MMI basic and basic + is the amplifier. And I've never seen an A6 with MMI Basic, they are all Basic + minimum spec with a red screen.

    So you can have a Basic + A6 with a 4 button panel and MOST, it will just have a single CD radio in the glovebox, but there will be a 9 channel amp in the boot hidden behind the left hand panel.

    Q7's on the other hand tend to be Basic and not Basic + with a red screen, but are still MOST.

    Right first of all, you cannot remove that single CD player at all. It is the MMI headunit, CD player & radio all in one.

    So you can add a 6 CD changer alongside it effectively giving you 7 disks to play from. When you add a 6 CD it will go into component protection and skip every 2 seconds, a dealership or an independant with online access can clear this only, no one else can.

    Also as you have MMI Basic and the AMI is not supported, so the best option for USB/Ipod is the Dension GW500, using this with a 6 CD would give you the best combinations.

    If you want any of these options fitting then give me a shout I have them all in stock.
