  1. David

    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!

  2. Rob

    I’m impressed with the CarPlay system and the service is great!

  3. James R.

    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.

  4. Matt Matthias

    Did exactly what I wanted, added CarPlay to my Audi A3 2014. Impressed and happy
