    Hi all,

    I've seen an armrest for sale for a good price, but it has the phone prep cradle built in, and at the moment (as far as I know) I have no phone prep in my car.

    There is a cable from the armrest for the phone prep, so I'm wondering if it's an easy job of just plugging this cable in to a loom under my centre console, beneath the rear ashtray somewhere, or whether you think my car wont have the correct loom there?

    I've had a quick look in the area under the console near my handbrake, and I can see some wires hidden near the rear of the handbrake, but I can't see any obvious plugs to connect the armrest in to.

    Anyone had any experience of retrofitting this part?

    Thanks

    Audi are pretty tight and every cars loom is made to the exact specification.
    So it is a good chance that the loom is not there.
    :sorry:

    You will have to buy the cable loom for the amrest that goes to the phone module 54 pin connector and also to the antenna amplifier.

    Do you have a phone prep at all? if not where are you going to attach this to?
