    Hi All,

    After doing some searching I eventually came to the decision that to get the exact answer to my query I may as well put it out there to all you pro's.

    As per my sig I have an A3 8p with the Concert double din radio. I have the iPod connection in the glove box (fitted from factory). After purchasing several leads/connectors I have failed in my quest to convert the iPod connector to an aux port.

    My reason to change this set up is because I would much prefer to select the track on the iPod rather than go through the rig morale of creating a playlist, adding the track, inserting it into the iPod connector, selecting the playlist and then searching through until I find the track. I also have the issue of the iPod moving and then having to open the glove box and re-inserting it.

    What I really want to know is, is it possible?

    When I was on the search for an Audi A3, I came across some that had an aux port in the centre arm rest; however, I can’t be sure if it had a different head unit (Chorus, Symphony)


    If it is possible, does anyone know how or where to go to get this changed?

    Thanks in advance and sorry if it is a repeat question

    The Aux port was standard from facelift models onwards I think... It can be retrofitted though and should be easy as you already have a quadlock stereo...

    Users NHN or Ash187 do retrofit installs...

    You still have to use the playlist function with the iPod dock, you can't use the iPod itself....
