    A3 is probably the hardest to do, as trimming the aircon is tricky and removing the cage is a pig. This install took 4 hours. The DIN conversion needs around £150 worth of parts. Then the costs of the RNS-E and bluetooth parts.

    did a good job trimming the Air Con! I don't think i'd have the balls to have a go at it tbh... Looks a very professional job.

    I have to say I am well impressed with this, looks the dogs cohonus. How easy would it be to retrofit the latest phone prep into the arm rest ?

    Cheers

    :) :)

    i'm well impressed too ... as it's my car! car now feels complete. total dream.

    and it's the car's duck (donation from embarrassed son). permatan ducky made it to the back seat and although he made it through the retrofit safe and sound, he's sadly currently covered in glass dust and flakes after a bit of piston came flying through my windscreen last night.

    thanks craig. i'm looking forward to getting my car back tomorrow with new glass and playing around more with all these new toys.

    a highly recommended and all-round satisfying experience for any of you considering it.

    If you don't mind me asking, how did a piece of piston end up through your windscreen?

    Why do you need the prep in the armrest, 99% of users do not ever plug the phone into the prep cradle, so bluetooth only is enough at £400.

    it blew out of the bottom of a citroen xsara on the m6 toll, bounced off the carriageway. i managed to miss the other bits of flying engine luckily. i'm going to only follow german cars for a while.

    Thought you need the full prep for the bluetooth to work, obviously not, do you need the MFSW for the bluetooth install to work ?

    :p

    The bluetooth prep will work with nothing installed at all except concert/symphony/RNS-D and the phone prep, it basically acts as a send and receive device, names and numbers will pop up on the DIS when the phone book has transferred and you set you phone to auto answer.

    If you have a MFSW, then you can control the phone through the wheel and DIS and make and recieve calls as long as your phonebook transfers. Also you get voice control of the phone.

    If you have the RNS-E nav system, you don't really need the MFSW, as you can control the phone from the nav screen. But the MFSW helps as you get voice commands as well.

    Out of interest, what voice commands does the BT kit support?
