    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.

    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.

    Do you also have the part no as collecting my car in 11hrs and 55mins and dealer is giving me any cables I require and hadn't seen the green one before today.

    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.

    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.

    I've just had a new A3 and have the green AMI lead for my iPhone 5 (IOS 8). If I plug the lead in to the car FIRST, the tracks will not play unless I press play on the iPhone. Changing tacks also requires me to press play each time. If I connect the lead to the phone FIRST then in to the car it's OK. This could be a pain unplugging the AMI lead each time I get in the car.

    Anyone heard of any problems?

    Just been to my local Audi garage and purchased the MMI lead for the I-Phone 5, it's got a yellow collar, part number 4FO O51 51O AL. It shows album art work and plays video.
