The MMI in your B8 platform is 3G High. Face-lift B8s (B8.5) got MMI 3G+ systems (as pictured). As noted above, you would need to change main unit (in dash) to EU region MMI 3GP and console control panel. Not a trivial project, but not impossible, either. --g
It's super easy and he doesn't need to change region as he comes from Swiss which is Europe. I did this so many times before. No wiring involved, just change unit, remove component protection, and code it properly. I can do this upgrade in 1 hour.
Understood, @Baas J. ; I mentioned "EU region MMI 3GP" since other regions (e.g., NAR) could be used but add more work (e.g., due to EEPROM language settings). Removing CP and 5F coding are the not-so-easy parts if you don't have access to the tools to do these. How much to buy the hardware to do this, 300-400 euro, for main unit & console ?
