    Hello,

    I've recently bought my MY17 (2016) A3. I've found that I'm missing some things, so inmidiatelly started to look for it ;)

    In another topic I fight with Auto Hold, but here I would be very pleased if you will give me some informations about AA/Carplay retrofit.

    I bought that setup:
    https://pl.aliexpress.com/item/33034294460.html
    and it looked like quite easy to fit (plug and play, of coarse with new software), but i have a small problem with green plug to be put on MMI. Green one is the same as it was in old usb socket so it was easy to change in big socket taht goes to MMI, but there are also 2 loose pins, and i don't know where to put it.
    Do you have any idea about that maybe?

    Use the search, been discussed about 50 times before..those aliexpress kits sound pretty rotten, but they do achieve you Carplay.

    I have one of these, sound on my unit is no different but the Carplay connection aspect is flakey at best.

    Like the other day someone said the basic sound system sounded as good as the BO one, sound can be subjective but most of the time people are just wrong :)

    Good attitude. Not sure what you're getting at here, pal. In the case of the basic sound system not sounding as good as BO then I'll happily agree with you. In the case of my current system, which isn't B&O then yes, via the ali express box the sound is no different.

    It really isn't...as I said, subjective.

    From AliEx is just a cable, we will see about it :)

    About seeking right thread, I cannot find something really helpful. Just general information about kits or methods. Could you link something here?
