#42 of 63 S-Line Kit & Bi-Xenon availability?
Jul 03, 2009 (5:18 pm)
I have a 2009 3.6 premium plus Q7 with almost everything I wanted....except for the S-line body kit and also the bi-xenon headlight.
Is it possible for me to purchase the bi-xenon headlights from Audi and have it installed? Parts/Service guy told me that since the wirings are different, it would not be possible?
But just wanted to get your guys take on it.
I am assuming with the S-line body kit, I can just purchase and have it installed.
#43 of 63 Pairing the 8830 to the Audi Q7

Does anyone have any "solutions" to allow me to pair my Blackberry World Phone, 8830, with my 2007 Q7? The Blackberry is runnning v220.127.116.11 (Platform 18.104.22.168) software. I wish the car companies would standardize the bluetooth interface so that all handsets would work.

I have the same issue and there might be a very easy and good solution.
I took my '09 Q7 to the dealer for the first oil change service. The service coordinator told me that all Q7s came pre-wired for navigation. He even showed me the harness where it plugs in. It is located in the right back corner of the vehicle behind the tool holder.
He said he will check on this a bit more as their parts department does not know about this. Audi system only knows what the car came with, which info is based on the VIN number.
He told me it really looks like it can be done and I'm still waiting for final info.
I'll let you know how it goes.

Got the answer to the question, i.e. how to add Audi navigation to the MMI.
The good news is that it can be done, the bad news is it costs quite a lot. Installation I think is not very difficult but parts cost a lot of money.
My dealer service guy told me first it would cost $550 - 650. Well, it is a bit more.
The navigation unit itself (with software included) costs $1639. In addition to this you need a bracket that holds the unit in the car. This is only $26.73. Then there is a "retrofit" part, which I understand is a wiring component that connects between the navigation unit and that wire harness in the back right corner of the vehicle.
I was quoted the parts at $2102.21 tax included today. Installation is extra, of course, and the whole thing would probably come to about $2500.

I ordered the navigation system to be added in my Q7 by my dealer. It is expensive but I was told that it will be covered under the same car warranty just as if it had been in the car when I bought it. There is someone in the E-Bay motors selling this same kit for a couple of hundreds less but for the benefit of warranty I choose to have it done by my dealer. Installation I could probably do myself but for the warranty I will not touch it.

Arrie--thanks for the update/info. If you dont mind, can you let us know how it goes and how much the final bill is? There were 2 dealers selling the Nav kits on ebay but I have been very hesitant myself in ordering from them. Installation does seem straight forward but I have no interest in messing with Audi warranty. Their prices are absolutely insane for service etc and if something were to happen electronically and they blamed it on customer that could be some big $$$$. Also, do u know if the Bluetooth is included with Nav?

What do you mena by Bluetooth?
I have Bluetooth phone interface in my Q7 but not the Navi. Bluetooth phone interface is separate from Navigation.

I was just checking my system because my Bluetooth stopped working yesterday. If anyone interested, I can post some pictures where everything is located and how it is connected. I have Sirius XM, NAV, Bluetooth, MMI in the car.
