    Its a really easy retrofit to do yourself, the hardest and most awkward bit is running the mic cable up the passenger side A frame and across the top of the windsceen to the front interior light fitting, but even that job only took about 10 mins to do.
    I didn't bother removing the A pillar trim as most guides tell you to do, I managed to prise it forward enough to get the cable behind it, you will need to remove the front interior light and pull on the headlining to get the cable on top of it and then grab the end of the mic cable to pull it through into the interior light recess.

    Heres the guide I used: OEM Bluetooth Install :icon_thumright:

    I bought one recently, the lowest he accepts automatically is £240 as far as Im concerned. He sometimes sells without the plug and play so maybe they go for £200. Its still a bargain at £240 !

    Got all my bits of the German e-bay (mike, module, antenna and cable) for a total of about £200...got the "Q" version of the module.....(I think the H & M versions are also OK).
    DO NOT get an "A" version of the module or you will not get all bluetooth functionality like the phonebook upload, etc. Looks like the "S" version of the module is the latest.
    Need to VAG-COM the module to the car....
    Scariest bit was getting the module - cos you have no idea if its goona work.....but its a top system when integrated into the RNS-e.

    Heres another good install site

    http://www.audiworld.com/tech/elec163.shtml

    Heres the list of Part Numbers:

    http://www.audiforum.us/part-numbers/7639-audi-bluetooth-tel-interface-part-numbers.html

    Module I have is the 8P0 862 335 Q MY 2008 (Europe, sw 0350)
    8L1 862 373A - Microphone
    8P0 035 503E - Bluetooth Antenna

    DO NOT USE THIS ANTENNA : 8J0 862 373 B - Microphone BOSE/TEL for TT 8J, R8 and 8P cabrio

    With regard to the Mike wiring, I found mike loom was already in my car....I connected the mike to the connector behind the curtesy light fitting in the front head lining......the other end of the mike cables was in the passenger footwell (the Mike cables are not used otherwise - if you use it then bell it out witha multimeter 1st)
    See this post :

    Hope this info is useful Ian :)

    BT unit arrived Thursday from Poland off Ebay after ordering last weekend.
    Latest Version, I beleive, listed as follows, (written on module label)
    BT: HW= 8P0 862 335 S H34 / SW= 8P0 862 335 AA 0600

    I decided to cut off the Quadlock adaptors and soldered all wires into my existing retrofitted "ISO to Quadlock" loom - adaptors not 100% compatible with my retrofit Quadlock.
    Also had problems with the supplied wiring loom concerning the supplied Microphone - did not want to work (No Mic Audio) and then once that was fixed found it was not easy to get the Microphone wire routed in the light unit - the Mic supplied was from Audi (correct Part No.) fits OK but with a custom white nylon 2-pin in-line adaptor not from Audi this made wire routing near impossible. With a bit of trimming of unnecessary nylon and a slight change in wire routing problem solved. Microphone still sits in correct position.
    (I have documented my problems Here if you are interested - AudiForum.US)

    Anyway after solving the above problems all working fine and test drove OK today.

    Next job is to make a custom charge cradle to sit in the armrest just to finish this project all off.
