1600??

I upgraded from Concert to 3G+ for less than 1000!
how did you manage to do that and do you remember the list of parts you got to do the job.
I just got my audi a5 and i wasnt aware of the difference now i wanna upgrade it. but dont want to pay crazy prices else i'd be better off selling and buying one with all that in it.

Did the upgrade from Concert to 3G basic. Had to take half the car apart, replace the rear wire loom and create a MOST network. Parts from the top of my head:

  1. MMI unit
  2. MMI screen, cable and facia
  3. center console control unit
  4. radiobox and holder
  5. wire loom
  6. gateway
I assisted in the installation and it took us (myself and a very experienced specialist) 11 hours straight in labour. Afterwards had to upgrade the firmware of the climate control unit and remove the component protection. Took about 1.5 month to source the parts from several suppliers and total cost was approx. EUR 1.000,-.
thanks a lot for the information and pictures. as i purchased an a5 i was thinking is this worth it because the amount of work and cost it will be. although i have been searching for parts online and some cut prices to be fair so maybe not as much as before but the labour would be also expensive. would you say do this or just get apple car play and install rear camera.
