    Hello Fellow S3 fanatics! I wanted to post up my YT channel for those of you looking to add ambient lighting or other DIYs into your 8V. Special thanks to the pioneers who put together threads to guide me with these DIY, I couldn't have succeeded without your hard work.

    Hi,

    I'm looking to activate VIM on my A3 so that I can cast my phone on the MMI screen via cables. Can I do it myself with OBD11? I'm not so experienced so can I wreck something while at it?
    Thanks,

    Dan

    Thx guys, my A3 is 15 plate so should work.
    Two more questions:
    1-can I ruin something with obd 11 if I'm not careful?
    2- has anyone connected their phone via cable to the MMI screen? I've read an american forum where they connect wirelessly their phone via ami to vga cable, hdmi to vga box and chromecast. Wonder if someone gas done it in the UK.

    Thx.

    You just swap them out in the headlight housing. Find the brightest led you can too.

    Right..

    I'm half way through having Google Mapse on my screen. Got one Miracast device from Amazon, a HDMI2AV box, and an AMI AV cable and magic, it works and I can wirelessly cast my phone to the MMI. Now I'm stuck in the damn VIM thing. Wish the VCDS cable would cost less than it does and the OBD11 kit arrives quicker than 2 weeks as it is advertised on Amazon. I'll find a way I think. :) Is anyone in West Norfolk area availabe to help me?
    If someone is intrested on the kit I can post the Amazon UK links.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Hi All,

    Just to let you all know that you won't have to see my you've been framed style DIY videos on here anymore lol
    I am collecting my new car on Friday and unfortunately it isn't an Audi...hence why I stopped additions and videos slowed down...
    Its a 2017 mercedes a class a250 amg line and just fancied breaking away from audi for a bit and getting into a different cockpit!
    I'll be making a video shortly about reasons why if you're interested and if you don't know about my youtube channel its here ... https://goo.gl/MBVvsd
    I'll still check this wonderful, active forum from time to time and I still receive notifications when inboxed...
    Hopefully the merc and a class forums are just as interesting as this one!
    Thanks for watching and ill see you soon! :)

    -Ami to RCA Cable
    -x3 Male to Male RCA adaptors
    -RCA to HDMI converter box
    -12v to usb scocket
    -usb cables for power

    If an Apple device then you will need the following in addition to the above:
    -Apple lighting AV cable
    -Apple usb to lighting cable (power)
    -hdmi to hdmi cable

    Android devices.... not sure what cable are needed.

    Wireless solutions, in addition to the first list of parts, valid for both Apple and android:

    -Google chrome cast
    -Amazon Fire stick
    -Miracast HDMI stick

    *firestick requires an app purchase.

    All the above requires Video in Motion activation in order to be able to view the information display while your vehicle is moving.

    Edit: just to add, both wires and wireless solution can be hidden under the centre console with no issues :)

    I've got a spare chromecast laying around so that would be perfect. In that case I'd just need the AMI RCA cable, male to male RCA cable, and HDMI to RCA cable? Already have a 12v usb socket and usb cables.

    Hdmi to RCA converter, not seen a cable as yet.

    One thing to note if your an iPhone user, wireless mirroring = crazy battery drain.

    Oops, meant to type box. Hopefully the battery drain shouldn't be an issue, I've got a charger in the car anyhow.

    Thanks for the info

    You cant have stage 1+ tuning because you have many I/O restrictions and higher intake temperatures.
