    I think this is where the standard Audi bluetooth phone thingy should go.

    What's missing?

    £5 for the cradle and about £20 for the phone. I'll be happy with that to fill it up.

    I'll take a look for that list.
    Be interesting to see what options I have.

    Thanks.

    I believe gen 1 was the old Motorola phone prep.

    That holder only gives 2 advantages, the first is it charges the phone the second is it uses the cars amplified aerial so you should get a better signal.

    The Audi bluetooth system you have will not stream music off any phone.

    Just been reading up on that.
    That's a shame.

    I wonder if the Audi phones you see on ebay still work?
    I guess they do if you can find the correct cradle?

    I believe they are for the Motorola phone prep only, don't believe they will work with the GEN2/3 BT units.

    That Motorola phone prep is the one that goes in the arm rest.

    Might keep my eyes open for RSAP cheap.
    Unless I win the nokia one for a pound. lol

    The big below the arm rest.
    To fit that better looking Audi phone. They use a different cradle (obviously).
    Ive not been able to find one yet.

    Sod that.
    I only want something to fill the gap that's own and looks better.

    Rather spend the time and money on a solar roof.

    If I were you i would just fiberglass something for that gap like a mobile phone holder or coin holder etc and get dension bluetooth that will stream music and phone.

    In fact I would even consider just taking it out and line the bottom to fill the holes.
    In mine I had the controls for my Bit 1 processor remote but I moved that to my front ashtray and hard wired in a lead to charge my mobile whilst i'm driving. i piggy bagked it off the cigarette lighter and the lead comes through to where your cradle should be. When I'm drivnig i put my phone there under the arm rest charging.

    Chatting to my dad about mobiles and what I'm trying to do, he said he has two 6020/6021 phones in a box not doing anything that I can have.
    I went on ebay and picked up a 6020/6021 cradle for the car.

    Just got to wait on the phone now.

    Going to take the bin out and give it a proper clean.
