Only if your cars is post 2016 as uses the smart phone interface

If prior, they take out the head unit, send it to Germany for a factory software update to allow the smart phone interface to work.

No music for 10 days, and £695 fitted

I am hoping to get this done to my car (a 2017 PE). I know this is going to be a dumb question :bash: but what does "and uses the smart phone interface" mean?
Currently running:
18 plate Lamborghini Huracan Performante (5.2l of V10 naturally aspirated craziness)
67 plate RS6 Performance (fully loaded)
66 plate Range Rover Autobiography (for wafting around)
16 plate Mini Cooper S convertible (lots of fun but rather skittish when thrashed)

Favourite car ever owned:
1971 Citroen DS21 - The Goddess (pure art on wheels)

Its worth talking to the company below for official carplay, he does everything through Audis portal so its added to your vin as if Audi was doing it themself, he comes to you as well.
