    Great work Booba! B&O factory looms in.. wow , credit!

    As Spyder said.. did you have to change Datasets on B&O amp etc? What about coding to 5F etc? Did you do it all yourself comparing against a factory B&O Q7?

    Cheers!

    Hey Andy, yeah i had to cut open a loom that i got from the motherland to carefully extract all the b&o cabling, fortunately i already had bose so most bus was already in the back and the other wire was the diagnostics purple/green wire. I got access to this from the original bose connection. I have to give credit to my mate gerard who did the trim removal and did the b&o grill extraction from the donor car. There is a factory method of renewing the grills by drilling them out and then using a 3.5mm screw.

    As for the dataset, i don't believe that i needed them as i switched on the car right after i got all speakers hooked up and the system started working immediately with no errors in 5f. i did only have the left speakers working due to CP, this was resolved once CP was removed. I would imagine that datasets are required if going from a non bose audio vehicle.

    Hey Booba,

    you wouldnt happen to have matrix lights and steel springs (ie no air suspension) would you? Going to retrofit as well but want to double check the coding for J519 [BCM1] and J393 [BCM2]

    On a side note, I had to update my dataset in J519 to get the correct menu's for ambient lighting. All working now thanks to VCP... Strange that there is a default setting on J519 which isn't compatible with q7.

    cheers

    Hey mate, that's good news on the ambient lighting. sorry, i have air suspension and matrix.

    Maaate,

    thats quite a spec'd up car. Did you order it new or did you get is second hand? You rarely see rear heated seats or sublinds or all wheel steering. I dont know how you would get on in BNE with heated seats ;-)

    Damn, I have 20+ q7 4M VCDS scans and only one, a retrofit, with Matrix and steel springs!

    I wasn't going to go down the ambient lighting path but Andy suggested it as he likes it. There is quite a bit of work and lots of pieces. The biggest PITA is the fact you cannot get the ambient background strips for the doors (and the wiring diagrams and factory info are cryptic - but I sorted all that out now).You need to purchase new doors cards $$$. Having said that I have shaped some perspex rods in their place and they work fine (not as good as the original however). I have the silver top/dark silver bottom trim and have just got some brushed aluminium trim so will be selling quite a bit of the ambient lighting with the silver finish so if your mate is interested let me know. He will need:

    a. Drivers vent with light strip. RHD variant
    b. passenger AC vent with light strip - expensive. RHD variant (I bought a LHD ambient from ebay.de and RHD standard LED ebay.co.uk and swapped the LEDs) *** Note LEDs are internally numbered. You need the correct ones for J519 to send colour info to them! They are on a LIN BUS
    c. Light strips for side of centre console (they fit into existing centre console). Need to purchase
    d) top centre console with light strip and RGB LED. RHD variant required (I'll be selling one of these - silver colour)
    e) back light strip for back of centre console (I'll be selling this with above)
    f) exit warning door panels (x4) << If you have exit warning/side assist you already have the correct ones.
    g) 4 x LEDs for exit warning strip (I'll be selling 2 of these)
    h) 4 x RGB LEDs for door ambient/background lighting (I'll be selling 4)
    i) 4 x makeshift perspex rods to go into door for above LEDs (I'll be selling 4 of these)
    J) Vag Can Pro (VCP) to download updates to dataset to J519 to instuct 5F on ambient light settings for Q7 4M (Yes J519 tells 5F over CAN). Once I updated my dataset on J519 the menu changed in 5F to the correct one!

    then the looms..... Power for lights and also LIN bus come from J519 at bottom of passengar a-pillar. This needs to be run around car.. since you did B&O it shouldnt be that difficult.

    Thinking about it I might have a scan from a 65 plate Passat Alltrack that had the VW equivalent matrix led headlights. Would this help?

    Thanks mate! Yes please. That would really help.

    Cheers.

    I bought it "ex demo" mid 2016, it wasn't an actual demo as it was the dealer principles car. sunblinds are especially rare, i haven't seen them on any other q7. Heated seats are quite good in BNE for the colder days, you wouldn't think it but i love them.

    Thanks for the great info on the ambient lighting, i will pass this onto a mate unless he reads this on here as he may be interested.

    No worries. That was a cool spec'd car. I purchased mine May 2016 and was an ex-dealer car also with 4-zone AC, Audi tablets (pretty rare), LED lights, 200Kw, assistance package. Was just missing ambient lighting, Bose and Matrix lights.

    I have retrofitted:
    1) ambient lighting now but need to install the illuminated door sills (I have some of these to sell as well ;-) ) and door handle apron lighting
    2) Phone Box (wireless charging)
    3) BOSE - 50% - going to re-run cabling as was using the standard cabling going to MBI2 but hard to troubleshoot. Need to remove headliner and cut holes for speaker grilles and install the grilles.
    4) chipped - 240Kw


    To be done:
    1) Night Vision (have parts. Controller installed under passenger seat. Just need to install camera - will do with Matrix Lights).
    2) Matrix Lights (have lights, wiring done except for front sensor to J393 - have parts and front left LWR sensor installed)
    3) HUD (have dash and HUD)
    4) Soft close doors. (have parts - need to install)


    Would love:
    Massage seats with venting... but where do you stop. Maybe B&O ;-)
