    Hi Guys & Gals,

    I've owned my S-Line Q2 for a while now and from having a look into Vorsprung models due to another thread, I noticed they also have Heads up display. Just out of pure curiosity, would this be something that could be retrofitted, has anyone done this? It would of course require the top of the dash to be cut, wiring and a new light control unit but due to it being a self contained unit it wouldn't require a new windscreen. The units and dash trim can be found online for a few hundred ££, it all just depends if the labour is worth it. I have the VC in my car so I'm not exactly dying for it, but if its something that can be done I wouldn't be opposed to the idea of doing it one day...I wouldn't mind being a guinea pig...hint hint @DJAlix...obvs don't want a hole in my dash for no reason haha.

    Would be a project and a first for me as most would not look at doing this retrofit. Happy to help if I can.

    Hey Sounds good to me, maybe something we could do when you're back...alongside the *** upgrade. It would be interesting to see how its wired through the wiring diagrams.

    ha i know the feeling - think the HUD may be a stretch to far for me, but if @Callum Jarvis works i may follow suit later down the line
    (first thinkgs is HBA and traffic sign recog!)

    I would be interested in the HUD. If its as simple as getting those parts, wiring and then giving it to someone to do then i would do it. Guess maybe 100 to fit it, 300 to buy parts, so just have to justify 400!

    audi have just dropped the pricing of the sq2 and q2 of the configurator front page - i wonder if that is a clue to the new model being released!

    The lower models had a smaller central MMI screen, all markets had it I think. Btw, is that your Q2 in your profile pic? I have the same. 1st edition :sign yum:

    hmm the pdf still states that it might have the camera. I’m still hopeful, need to go shine a light on that small triangle I the centre of the windscreen!

    By time it’s out my TT pcp will be over so will have to stick to what I’m ordering. Annoyed that I can’t get the vorsprung model!
    it seems if I don’t have that camera it’s just not with fitting which for the price of car it is I’m disappointed!

    I’m hoping for you. You can always check the PR codes in the service book. Will be quotes at qk1 I believe

    In the UK 7" display is standard although the bigger 8.3" comes part of the tech pack....just interesting to see that in some markets they come even smaller.

    Audi’s are so weird! It’s got heated seats, climate control, aircon, but a stero that belongs in a 90s fiesta! That MMI aside, I don’t get Audi options, it’s never linear like other models!

    It’s real. Not all markets are the same and some have massive tax on optional extras. I believe turkey is 100% once the value of the car is to a threshold, so an MMI upgrade that costs £1000 is actually £2000 as a result. This is why these is such a massive retrofit market in eastern EU and why I am so busy over here at the moment :) People buy poverty spec cars and then retrofit in order to keep overall costs down. Never thought I would see a Q8 without a virtual cockpit but have seen two today alone lol

    wow!
    just to give you all an update, my audi dealer contacted me earlier, in the port there is currently a vorsprung sq2 in black, cancelled order and did i want it, same price as my sq2 that was being ordered - snapped there hand off

    only thing missing is folding wing mirrors - how easy to retrofit those?

    Not a big job physically but then I do this for a living. Might be a big job for the pocket tho as it’s not the most cost effective retrofit.

    also @Callum Jarvis if you are still looking at head up disply - the new car will have it so happy to give you a scan to see what may need to be turned on

    That’s amazing! Guess it worked out in the end! Yeah that would be fantastic. U guess the hardest part will be to try and source a RHD version of the HUD as I assume the LFD ones will be inverted or at least the dash trim.

    there doesnt seem to be anythink that would distinguish a L hand or R hand on the serial number and this one has a complete dash cover replacment
