    On my 2014 A3, I have the Audi Connect option with gives me 3G connectivity. However, on the 2015 A3 sold in the US, its offered with LTE. Anyone know if its possible to swap out the UMTS module with an LTE one and how much it would cost?

    I looked into doing this, but I think it would be very expensive, needing the whole MMI unit replacing basically.

    Ah, it's pretty much what I suspected would be the case. Speaking of which, anyone know the specs on the 3g module in the A3? Is it HSDPA or HSPA or just UMTS or what release is it?

    Cheers

    In theory you could swop the internal radio module, but you'd have to know part numbers etc.

    Ref earlier cars having 4g

    The display actually goes through 3G, 4g, LTE.

    4g is really 3.5G or dc-hsdpa or dc-hspa+ (Ie not LTE which is really 4G)
