    Hi, I have an A3 sportback from September 2007: which bluetooth retrofit kit do I need. I am seeing on ebay that some 8P0 862 335 kits are only supported on the A3 up to 2006. Which end letter do I need for my 2007 a3 ?
    I saw on www.navplus.us that the latest version for Europe is the 8P0 862 335 Q MY 2008 (Europe, sw 0350) . Would an older version work anyway? Any known limitations on older models?


    Thanks for your help.

    older versions should work fine - the q version has code to work with some nokia smartphones such as the n95 - but only if the n95 is loaded with nokia handsfree software

    The above is pretty much true. Just avoid the really early versions which have very limited bluetooth support.

    Here is the full list of available versions

    PHONE INTERFACE BOX
    8E0 862 335 <MY 2005.5 A4 (US) - no Bluetooth
    8P0 862 335 <MY 2004 A3 - Basic functionality only
    8P0 862 335 A MY 2004 A3/A4 - Basic functionality only
    8P0 862 335 D MY 2005 A4 >8E-5-533 000 - Basic functionality only
    8P0 862 335 E MY 2005 A4 8E-5-533 001>>8E-5-600 000 - Basic functionality only
    8P0 862 335 C MY 2006 A4 8E-6-000 001/8E-6-800 001>>
    8P0 862 335 B MY 2006 A3/A4 (US)
    8P0 862 335 F MY 2006.5 A3/A4 (Europe)
    8P0 862 335 G MY 2006.5 A4 (US)
    8P0 862 335 M MY 2007 (Europe)
    8P0 862 335 J MY 2007 (US)
    8P0 862 335 H MY 2007.5 (Europe)
    8P0 862 335 L MY 2008 (US)
    8P0 862 335 K MY 2008 (Europe, sw 0340)
    8P0 862 335 Q MY 2008 (Europe, sw 0350)
    8P0 862 335 R MY 2008 (North America)


    I have version M in my A3 and it has never been any problems. Fully pairs with all the phones I have owned (even the iPhone).

    What would happen if I connect a "J" version (US version from the list above) to my European model?
