Default 04 A8 Bluetooth retrofit

Well, i'm trying to retrofit the Bluetooth in my 04 D3 and i'm trying to keep the cd changer and xm module which I both use. Where do I plug the MOST into?? Every thread I've looked at is either they hook the MOST up to the Cd Changer or Xm module thus diabling either one. Like I said I don't want to disable either one. Ok thanks again in advance.

Dont bother with the retro fit as it seems to be difficult and the cradle/puck solution works identically except for having caller ID and importing of list from phone. And the cradle/puck takes five minutes to install. I have that for BT in my 04 and it works great.

Ok so will it the Bluetooth settings pop up in the MMI?? I don't care about importing my contacts or the caller id. Where do I get the cradle puck from?? How much is it on average??

I have never seen one of the "B" cradles for sale used...have to order from Audi dlr. Pucks were also used for BMW and I think also MB, so you might find one used and they are arround $100. So you'll have $300-400 in the BT system, but no pita install.

back in 09 I searched for the least expensive price for the cradle and ended up buying from Newton Motor Sports (an Audi dlr) in Newton NJ. At that time I paid $275 incl shpg.

Their number is 973.383.2624
