    There is no place on the stereo to plug in the ipod you will need the AMI in the glove box and this will then allow full working control through the steering wheel,although there is an SD slot in the stereo that will work through the steering wheel.

    There is an aux-in, in the centre arm rest. This will not charge or control the ipod though.

    If you spec the AMI from new you get two cables to connect Ipod or other MP3 player. dealer option code UF7 cost £245 inc VAT (according to brochure)

    I have the AMI in the glovebox and have to say, it's one of the best systems i've seen. It allows full control for the ipod through the system, including the wheel, and also charges the ipod. The other option of aux jack plug in the centre console is poor in comparison.

    Called in at dealer today and tested out a 143 sline , must say i was impressed how quiet the new engine is , although i broke into a laugh when the sales guy gave me the cost to change. Thanks for the help guys

    I have to agree the AMI is quality as big bird says,but i really wouldnt pay the extra for it just get a 16gb SD card and use this in the slot far cheaper.As my car was a demo it had some extras on it including the AMI, i also have the symphony radio with MP3 6 disc changer so i have any amount of music possibillities but i really dont use the cd changer but its always there should i need it.

    Sorry, i was under the impression that the car you were after was used.If your having a new one its well worth it.

    Hi guys , i have searched through the audi website its amazing the number of cars listed that dont appear to be in stock , and such an array of prices, have been looking at 2 phantom exec slines vey nice.so hope to sort things out tomorrow if i can get decent price for my car . In northern ireland it doent matter as much whether a car is on 58 09 or 59 plate , it is still an 2009 car .

    is there any big issues on the b8 i need to look out for ?

    I've only had my 09 S-line two weeks and spent az few months looking for the right one. As far as i ciould find out, there have been no major reported issues with the car- they are still too new. Plus, a 2009 car will still have the best part of 2 years warranty left on it!!

    I found a few cases of the B&O amplifier going a bit mad, but apart from that, not a lot really....!!
