Hi all, what are the options for getting the following.

1. IPhone access for music, prefer hard wired, but bluetooth would be useful as well. I have seen the enfig videos and do not like the idea of pulling the console apart as I don't want rattles and thats inevitable if I start doing that.

2. Options for upgrading the amp, speakers and adding a small sub. I see the jbl ms8 is discontinued. Any other all in one units?

Thanks.
 
You can retrofit an Audi Music Interface. Mounts in the glovebox next to (or in the place of) the CD changer.

On an early car like yours, the MMI 2G system will require a firmware update to support it.

You can get piggy back devices that hook up to the factory head units instead of replacing the whole head unit. What head unit do you have installed?
 
What do you want to know specifically?

Well, I’ve been reading about some Bluetooth streaming devices that connect to AMI interface in some Audi’s. Seems to be only those fitted with the 2G High though? I don’t care really where it connects.. I never use CD these days, so if it requires pulling out the CD stacker, not a problem!

I recently installed an eBay Bluetooth unit into my B5 S4 with Bose system. No wires need to be cut as it replaces the CD stacker input. Connects to the Bluetooth very easily and has a USB option too. Around $80-$90 AUD shipped. Check that the photos they have on eBay match your unit and get some radio removal pins to remove the factory unit
 
I jacked into the system by using one of the spare video lines in the boot. You can then use a 3.5mm stereo plug or RCA into it. From the control side, you just select video in MMI and then let your iphone do the controlling. Saved me having to add an interface like a DICE or a genuine AMI to break into the system. This is in my 4F. In my C5 I just added a quick and dirty bluetooth + audio interface through an ISO cable.

I bought one of these retro fit things back in October https://www.naviplus.com.au/online-...CarPlay-&-Android-Auto-Integration-p100855590 never had it working properly and had untold issues with it. Starting with killing my battery, ended up having to buy a new battery. When it worked it was fine, though volume was always low so had to crank it up to get to normal levels, not too bad unless you're switching to the radio. Then realised it was draining my new battery slowly after I'd left the car in the garage for a week and the battery was dead. Was previously able to leave the car in the garage for 4-6 weeks and it'd still fire up first time.
Anyway, got the guys at battery world (where I bought the battery from) to check it out and they confirmed that there was a drain, took it to an auto electric installer who found an issue with the original install which was causing the battery drain. Long story short, this didn't fix the issue and another couple of jump starts later I'd had enough and took it back for them to rip out and restore to factory standard.

I now have this retrofit system in the garage minus the touchscreen (still in the car) if anyone fancies a go with it.
 
Sounds like it should have been wired to switched power instead of permanent power Chung?

Yeah I know, too late now, all the bits are in the boot apart from the touch screen, which is still in the car. Expensive lesson learnt, go to the specialist instead of trying to save a few bob, will cost more in the long run.
