Bluetooth with wheel controls

So I've just bought a 2007 S5 with MMI 2G High (6 disc changer in the front with sat nav drive in the boot) and I'm due to pick it up this Thursday. One thing it is missing however is AMI and also has no AUX port.

After going over a few sites I've found that my options are to either have the AMI retrofitted, have a Dension Gateway 500 fitted, or have a Connects2 Aux kit fitted.

Now, what I'd really like is to be able to stream Spotify from my Android phone, and be able to skip tracks using the steering wheel controls. Is there anything out there that might do this for me?

Everything I can find seems to favour iPhones and iPods which is a bit annoying.

My problem is I don't use an iPhone, I currently have a Nexus 6P. I would personally prefer to install the AMI, but I'm just concerned that there isn't anything that supports Android very well.

My dad has an android and it works (Samsung) but for Spotify I'm not sure, it will stream for sure but I'm not sure about controls.

Ah ha damn, I thought it would work, there is the solution that pioneer offers to retrofit screen and radio, much mot expensive but you will have 100% compatibility :




I think it looks great and you keep steerin wheel controls and all, ac...

How much is it out of curiosity?

Here are two Chinese versions but work great I guess for the pioneer you can add a good 300 for the whole plug and play set

I was kind of hoping that I'd be able to get something that simply hooks into the MMI system, rather than replacing everything.

What are the general views on the Dension Gateway 500S BT? I'd only be using the bluetooth model for music streaming, curious how well these work with Android phones and if they transmit the steering wheel controls over to the phone.

The 500S would also give me the option for DAB in the future without too much faffing if I needed to install it.
