    Do you know anyone who can fit this kit, and also how quickly can Stuart get this kit.

    Been looking for one like this for ages but been finding it hard

    I'm right in saying that no dealers will attempt this will they? There's no way I'd try this my self! :)

    Even if they would they would probabnly charge an astronomical amount due to there high labour costs.

    But the tiguan is a brand new model so probably has the appropriate coding and modules built in?

    Hi Dan.

    Yeah sent a few e-mails to Stu, and im in manchester you see, so a good few miles away.

    But . . . . the miles wouldnt stop me as i could have a weekend away with the missus you see. So ill see as the only other option is a phone holder, but there are more expensive, then i would have to change holder if i swap my phone etc etc.

    That's a very kind offer. Thanks, I will give it some thought :) First priority is to take the car to a detailer and get rid of the thousands of scratches that were left after I used a dodgy drying blade! Once that's done I'll think about the BT.... :D

    Dan (or anyone else that has undertaken this adventure!),

    If I don't buy the new instrument cluster and stick with the standard one will I be able to use my steering wheel buttons to simply answer calls using a variant of the mute button mod mentioned above?

    I have the TFSI Sport (same as Dan) which comes with a 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel. Accordng to the manual (P82-85) two control variants are possible with the LHS button cluster providing telephone support with the BT option.

    From the VAG-COM Wiki I can see that the Steering wheel controller options for digit 4 are:

    0 = Steering Wheel without Multifunction
    1 = 3-Spoke Steering Wheel without Multifunction
    2 = 3/4-Spoke Steering Wheel with Multifunction without Cruise Control
    3 = 3/4-Spoke Steering Wheel with Multifunction with Cruise Control

    (Audi A3 pages add)

    3 = 4-Spoke Multi-Function (with Radio/Telephone Control)
    4 = 4-Spoke Multi-Function (with Radio/Telephone/Voice Control)

    Worth trying to set digit 4 to '4'?

    I darrel, no need to reprogram the controls.

    The bluetooth will use two buttons regardless wheter you have the larger MFD or not.

    The mute button the steering wheel:
    Pressing this starts the voice command menu,, some nice lady gives you a list of options, or you can give it your command.

    The button under the right indicator stalk:
    Pressing this answers or hangs up calls.

    Dan can you quote me the part number of the cluster you bought?

    Also, is there any reason that I couldn't use a 2.0 TFSI FR cluster in my Sport?
