    Hi everyone,

    I'm a newbie here and this is my first post, I have recently bought a 2008 A4 (B8), fitted with the absolute most basic stereo, Concert with no AUX etc, just the CD/SD option.

    Wondering what my options are to upgrade this?

    My main priority is to allow me to play music from my iPhone, (either via bluetooth, or cable), but depending on cost I am not averse to paying a bit more to have a Carplay setup where I could benefit from the satnav also


    The digging I've done to date suggests that this head unit is not great in terms of working with other systems, has anyone swapped the concert stereo with CD/SD button for the one with Media button, and then fitted a carplay system? Is this an option, or will it be incompatible with my vehicle?

    Any help/advice would be much appreciated

    Ok, i have an update

    Took the audi and a 2012 Concert head unit to a local Auto Electrician, head unit fitted fine but needs 'coded' which our local Audi dealership refuse to do!!
    So, question is...what are my options now?
    Have read a number of threads advocating use of the SD Card, which would be fine were it not for the 4Gb limit the concert unit allows, am i right to belive the 2012 head unit will support a bigger SD?
    If so, are there any folk who can 'code' the 2012 Concert to my car?

    Really at a loss here, and pretty ****** at how difficult getting a decent ICE set-up is for this car!

    this maybe more than you want to spend, but there may be an additional option. I think Alpine do a model that replaces the concert with a new head unit, giving you full CarPlay.

    He you tried a local VAG specialist independent garage for the coding ? They may be able to help. Which town or city are you based near?

    sorry, just seen you’re in Scotland.

    OK, at long last I'm having the newer Concert head unit fitted tomorrow, next question...where can I get my hands on the required wiring to allow me to connect this to my ipod/iphone? eBay seems to have plenty of the AMI cables, but I think I'm right to believe I need some additional wiring from the rear of the headunit to the AMI port?

    For ami you also need AMI(can) unit, not just wiring. For aux you need 12pin connector with "jack" cable(male or female up to you), should be cheap on ebay, but aux means no controls via car buttons.

    Probably there is few aftermarket solutions also for music interface and concert radio, but i have not investigated those.
    Factory solution is 8T0035785A(must be can version) and oem location is glovebox(you may need new one or modify old, depends what you have now). On ebay i guess you find ami around "100"!
    Some generic info here:

    Not related to cp, so dealer is not needed for this retro.
