    Hi Guys,

    Hope your all well, recently picked up 2012 Q5 which I'm super in love with. However, one of my favourites things to do is me and my kids taking long drives and listening to music.

    My Q5 has MMI 3G low however music can only be played via SD card or CD Player etc... really want to be able to play music via Bluetooth wireless Ideally via apple car play or something similar, Now after doing my research I have seen that I can get a retrofit to do this.

    Found the following company Audi retrofits ltd- who have lots of stuff on there website (including youtube vids) they seem to know their stuff.

    Spoken to the guy via Instagram and he says they can do the work pls see link below:

    The aftermarket wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto kit is £550 supplied and fitted.

    He's asking also for a deposit of £300 pounds to book the car in for an appointment to have this done..(not sure how comfortable I am with sending money, is this normal??)


    Wanted to know if anybody from 'myaudiq5' family has used or heard of this company before.

    Thanks In Advance guys.. :)

    Hey, had my RS3 grill and dynamic mirror indicators fitted by him last year.

    We sent a deposit before so that’s normal. Very happy with the service, quick and professional. Highly recommend him.

    Apple CarPlay / andriod auto box is £200 from aliexpress. If you are not confident in fitting then I would ask £45.00. Done loads of these recently. These boxes are all made by the same three companies but people sell them for higher prices with different labels so don’t pay over the odds.

    had one box, on an older RS4, which needed resetting in order to solve a connection issue, otherwise no.

    Ok cheers

    I fitted one and I assume they are all the same but everytime I switch the car on i have to disconnect and reconnect bluetooth for it to work as it also connects to the phone kit

    try a factory reset and then setup again. I believe these units can also have firmware updates so might be worth checking. None of these boxes are perfect, hence why I advise buying from Aliexpress to avoid inflated prices. Never had good results with boxes that look like number 2 but number 1 does need to be connected the BT and then selected as a source for the sound to work.

    Hi Guys,

    Can anyone help with a 100% certainty whether an Q5 with MMI 3G low be fitted with the above kit found on Ali express:
    https://www.aliexpre...e_backgroup_101

    I have been advised that I could order this and someone would fit it, however, the seller has just got back to and told this doesn't work on 3G Low.

    This is becoming beyond frustrating all I want to do is play music from my phone in the car wireless/Bluetooth. [​IMG]
