Android auto / carplay media interface all done, 2G mmi not very plug n play, need to wire into fuse box 12v,12acc, ground, 2 orange wires to candus +- wire to the pin 16 of mmi power plug for NAV button to switch between factory mmi & carplay on screen,
Fitted the mic up in the spare hole in roof light for ok Google /siri. Audio out to ami-3.5mm aux, also ran a usb extension lead to the armrest, but can use for a usb drive as found it had wifi & both carplay & auto work wireless.
Unlike a factory AA CP will play video & stream with mirror cast from phone, have a few hacked apps to try too.
Add a new level to a tired 2007 2G A5.
Brought fron EliteCarplay

Only the 2G doesn't have the newer lvds cable from mmi to screen, has like an old school scart, 2G comes with this little box that's lvds in fron carplay media interface to 2g in/out cable to screen.
Just incase anyone buys a plug n play ebay /aliexpress /wish one 2G needs wires jouning & splicing into canbus & nav button while 3G & headunits have in/out plug n play sockets
