    Excellent product, CarPlay allows full integration of my iPhone with the car, which Audi themselves said was not possible for my 2013 A3.Especially like how I can control Spotify through my steering wheel controls, makes driving a pleasure again!

    Impressed with this sellers speed in responding to my queries pre purchase. Clear instructions made the installation process go smoothly. Overall a nice product, only limited slightly by the screen resolution in my A3 with 5.8″ screen however after a while totally used to it.
