I bought an Audi A7 3.0tdi Quattro 3 days ago and on the first night I was browsing this forum and stumbled upon the following topic: https://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/factory-carplay-activated.411753/ I contacted Alex from https://www.vagcarcoding.com/ and asked him if he could do his "magic" for me too. He said, luckily my car is new enough (2015), so probably yes. Went to him at night, he was really flexible and after 2 hours of firmware upgrading, I had Apple Carplay/Android auto without unique-auto's carplay box (a bit botched solution if you ask me). I had a lot of smaller options enabled on the car like oil temperature, closing electric tailgate using the car keys, sound confirmation when locking/unlocking the car and many others. I couldn't be any happier with the results. Now finally, I can use Waze on the MMI screen instead of mounting my mobile on the vents risking breaking one of the slat.
