    Well the A3 with symphony has neither AMI or MMI.

    You can pair the HTC with the car for bluetooth, put the key in the ignition and turn to 2 position, use your phone to search for the car's bluetooth. You should find AudiUHVxxxx and the passcode is 1234

    As for a cradle, well the Audi systems do not supports music over bluetooth in the current A3.

    Get a Dension gateway 100 CAN fitted for your Ipod music and you can use that charge your Iphone and play music in the future.

    You will have bluetooth with or without a cradle.
