    Hi guys,

    finally time to post my story about my B7 TDI Avant Ocean Blue Pearl

    Car: Audi A4 B7 Avant
    Model: 1.9TDI
    Color: Ocean Blue Pearl
    Power: 115hp original -> 150hp chipped
    Location: Belgium

    Car is as good as full option except for Xenon headlights.

    Some pictures when i bought my car:

    Installed a few months later an AP coilover set and fitted an S Line front bumper.
    Also fitted Rotiform Nue wheels underneath the car.
    Just a few months later i decided to become an addict an bagged my car with Airlift Air suspension.
    I went with the Autopilot V2 controller.



    Last year I sold my Rotiform Nues and bought a new set of Rotiform IND. Love those wheels.
    Also notched the front up and down to get extremely low.
    Here are a few pictures just before winter.

    Quick write-up about my car entertainment system i have installed.
    My headunit is a RNS-E and i wanted to keep it all OEM.
    What i've done:


    Connected a Kufatec AMI+ controller at my RNS-E so i can connect an multimedia device and a backup camera.
    I bought also an Raspberry Pi (that tiny little computer) and used a CANBUS module to put on the RPI so it can read all data out of my car and all buttons will work ( steering wheel etc.)
    Next i fitted an 4port USB Hub (high AMP one with 2,5 amp/ port ) to connect a MIFI ( that's a mobile router with LTE function) and a HDD cause the RPI doesn't give that much power.
    I also connected my Phone holder to it and made sure all cables are not visible. ( got a mountr mount. it's magnetic and it charges wireless. no more s*** with my iPhone cables :D).
    The CANBUS module starts up the RPI with the ignition of my car and properly shuts down when i turn off my car so data couldn't corrupt.
    Only problem i have is that the CANBUS itself doesn't work 100% (My car is a little bit flipping sometimes) so i disconnected it and i will look to work wit an 12V ignition to start up / shut down.
    For the buttons i will look to connect the Remote line to the RPI (saw on the internet it works)

    On the RPI, i installed openelec. An open source linux distro with Kodi (XBMC) implemented. To connect the RPI with the AMi is used a simple HDMI to AV adapter.
    Had i little struggle with the right resolution and had to fix my font cause they were not good readable on my RNS-E screen. But i found a good theme now and edited the font size and it's all perfect now.
    Putted everything away in my glovebox but need to put everything on a nice way.
    Here's a pic how it looks into my glovebox:



    Here's a video to show it's working:

    Also fitted an Backup camera. Bought a second hand camera on ebay for only 75$ and bought the Q7 handle with LED lights and resistors.
    Don't look at my dirty car. took these pics in a rush. will post some nice pics soon:



    Only thing left is to do a VIM hack on my RNS-E and code it that the Backup camera works when i put it in reverse (now i neet to set it manually on the source but i don't have a legit VCDS cable so need to wait till a guy i know has the time to do it for me
