    Guys,

    collected the the new motor today (first impressions to follow).

    Was given a lightning MMI cable for my Iphone 5 which apparently was new in this week.

    Nice one! Is that the green one?

    So how's the motor?

    Yes it's green.

    Will post a pic when I remember how.

    Seems to work better than old cable with lightning adaptor.

    Do you have a case on your iPhone, and if so, will this cable fit it without needing to take the case off? There does appear to be a bit of a shoulder on the lightning plug which maybe means it will fit through a chunky case like mine.

    I Have one of those leather wrap around cases so I have to open it to attach the cable. the plug is quite chunky at the shoulder and doubt it would accommodate one of those clip on cases.

    That should be 4F0 051 510 AD

    At the moment that cable does not support album artwork or video, certainly not the case in my 3G plus and iPhone 5

    Should work with all cars, everything is fitted with AMI as far as I'm aware.

    Green collar cable is the correct cable for 5s

    Enjoy the cable fun.

    My experience green one= rubbish (looses connection / not fit for nothing apart from bin)
    Blue one (older i-phone connection plus apple lightning adaptor) = much better conection, no dropping of call, displays artwork.
    but costs you another 25 quid.

    I've got a blue collar cable with apple lightning adaptor and can't get the
    artwork to work with iPhone 5.

    Green collar cable broke almost immediately and ended up in the bin.

    I've got the lightning cable as well. But I've find using Bluetooth connection is the best. It does album art too.

    You need the red one with an adapter for artwork to work

    This is what I use but the connection is still a bit iffy... I really don't understand why Audi can't just make a single Lightning and 30pin cable and be done with it instead of having two or even three variants for both and charging different amounts. It either works or it doesn't!

    I use Bluetooth sometimes and it works fine but I find the quality is diminished compared with the cable.
