    Your best bet is whoever manufactures the towbar kit.

    the phone thing in the armrest is to charge the iPhone, it should still pick it up on bluetooth, also do you have the right adapter to plug in the iPhone?

    You can buy the flap from audi, but of course needs painting for your car colour.

    You say in the glovebox, since the charging base is in the armrest or dash then maybe you're talking about the crappy ipod connection?

    Pictures would help.

    If thats the case, then this is not the factory fitted audi phone connection, so either its ipod, retrofitted oem phone cradle (doubtful as in glovebox) or some aftermarket phone system, pics will clarify :)

    Ok thats a dension cradle & it maybe needs an adapter to work, its not oem & will be purely for music interface to the head unit, it wont show track data either.

    Can update the systems to the latest & use say ami, but thats allot of money, if you get an itch that needs scratching, give me a shout as I supply/fit these systems everyday :)
