    Anyone knows about 2G? Can we enable the oil temp meter? Or there is no oil temp for 2G? Thanks

    3G simply refers to the MMI being the 3rd Generation. It's not a function in itself.

    You get better screen resolution, quicker response, 3D images on the Satnav etc etc

    3G came in with the MY2010 models around July 2009. Beware that even if you buy a car with satnav after this date it may not be the full thing as the DVD based satnav was still available. The easiest way to tell is ;

    Non satnav car :

    2G Satnav cars have the MMI rotaty controller down by the arm test.

    3G satnav cars have a little thumb joystick on the top of the MMI rotary controller.

    Cheers scoTTy that has cleared the fog a bit ! I think I have a hell of a lot to get to grips with here LOL. The car I have come across is an 09 but not sure how far in to 09 it was registered/manufactured, have e-mailed the dealer to ask so lets hope he know what it is !!!

    Hard to tell from that pic. You should be aware that the changes for the MY2010 cars were quite a lot. At least a lot more in any year before or since. Check out this document :

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3628815/Car/A4/Model year 2010 changes and pricing.doc

    Personally I'd try and get the later car due to the benefits not least the quieter wing mirrors.

    Not sure what the above one is though. I suspect an earlier car based on the glimpse of the mirrors. Also since it's a manual, if it's a 2.0T or a 2.0TDI then it's an earlier car as the later ones have Stop/Start and a button under the coin holder (the slot thing near the gear shift).

    I'd say it's MY2009 but during transition there's always a few off build cars.

    Simple thing is to ask the dealer ;)

    He confirmed it is a 2G model, not sure if it is possible to "upgrade " to 3G ? If that is possible then could be a green for go

    Technically it is but financially it isn't. Once you've thrown the £3k+ at it then it's obviously worth just buying a newer car.

    If you don't have navigation then you won't be able to access the 5F module as it will not be fitted to your car.

    It's only for MMI 3G systems, that have navigation with the 5F module installed.

    as far as I am aware, RNS-E is not compatible with the B8 cars - or at least it was never fitted to any from factory

    Hi Gents,

    I am a new owner of a 2013 Audi A4 B8. I just wanted to find out about the topic at hand. You say after you accessed the VIM you able to watch a video displaying on the on board screen.

    Do you have to have a Navi installed or can this feature be added in without any extras being fitted?

    Does the normal display play the videos 100%?

    Concert & Symphony units will not play any dvd's or video files. If you you have MMI 3G then it will play DVD's but not movies of the SD. If you have MMI 3GP then you can play both DVD's & movies off an SD card.

    Movies played from an SD card will only work if they are encoded with the correct resolution & frame rate.

    We need to know what system you have,
