    Hi

    After reading through pages of AMI info, i am confused as ever.

    I bought a used A4 (B8 - 2009) last week and assumed it had an AMI input in the glove box. Unfortunately it didn't. In fact, it has nothing in the glove box part from a spare key holder !

    My MMI unit is a 2g high. It has a 6 cd changer in the dash and the control unit around the gears. The DVD sat nav lives in the boot.

    From searching around google/youtube/various form's i can't find this combination to gather info about what i need to add an AMI socket to the car.

    Do i need the full AMI unit and splitter to the back of the 6 cd changer in the dash, OR am i able to get a AMI cable, and cut a hole for it in the side of the glove box.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    What Gunnark said is spot on, they don't come with AMI - especially the early ones if it's 2G...

    I was looking into it when buying my A4 a few years ago and as it was a bit of a faff getting it retrofitted waited for one that already had it - if I remember correctly prices were about 450 for a full retrofit installed.

    Thanks for the quick replies. At least i know which direction to go in now.

    Im guessing the unit will come with loom splitters, that just go in the rear of the in dash 6 cd changer ? Is it a case of plug and play at that point and the AMi will appear in the source menu automatically ?

    I have seen a few 'used' ami units on ebay, but there are a few different types of units. Most of them are advised for 3G not 2G. Will it matter, or is that just me being hope full.

    I'm pretty sure that the 2G and 3G system are totally different so not interchangeable.

    With 2G I think the AMI unit goes in the glove box and does connect to the back of the CD changer - but not 100% sure as I have a 2012 model which is a bit of a different setup - hopefully, someone with more knowledge can help.

    I've been searching and i think for the MMI 2g high, its the 4E057785F AMI unit that may be required.

    But I've seen quiet a few AMI units for sale without the F at the end, just 4E057785.

    Does anyone know if these will be compatible ?

    Without suffix are probably early units from a8 and a6, they probably work, but I will not recommend those old units. So,
    4E0 035 785 B ,D or F.
