Hi Guys,

I am just considering options for my imminent purchase and was wondering if anyone had an opinion on the following

  • Interior lighting pack
  • DAB Radio
  • Auto dimming mirror (Does this do anything other than auto dim? Does it control the follow me home function or is that standard?)
  • Parking plus

Also I will need a hands free phone option but not keen to go with the Audi factory options (company car purchase and this would mean I had to pay for it). Are there any 3rd party options available that would integrate with the AIS? (this wouldn't cost me)

Interior lighting pack is worth having IMO - especially for the door warning lights (came as standard on my old A4!!).
I have heard that DAB radio is a bit of a no-no at the moment. European standards differ from UK: UK coverage is far from complete and although the potential is there, the current bit rate in the UK is well below par - furthermore it suffers from drop-out.
Parking plus is probably OK but I've heard people comment that they only really use the standard rear parking.
Auto dimming mirror depends I guess on how much night-time driving you do and whether you find dazzle a common problem-personally I decided against.
