Audi MMI 3G – characteristics
From the outside, it looks like you have a 7 “color display (better resolution than MMI 2G High). In addition, the MMI 3G hallmark are two slots for memory cards.

They can look like this:

How to connect Bluetooth in Audi
Now that we have established that our Bluetooth module is for your Audi (A4, A5, A6, A8, Q5, Q7) you can proceed to connecting the BT module in Audi. Our module is basically intended for B2B sales, so you won’t find assembly instructions in the set. If you want to connect this module as a private person, there are no obstacles. Please find attached the installation instructions for the Bluetooth module in Audi.
The whole trick is to connect the fiber optic cable to the Audi installation and provide a constant power supply.
Note: MMI 3G in Audi can only support one additional CD changer. For this reason, in order for the presented module to work properly (the module “pretends to be a CD changer”) it is necessary to physically disconnect the original changer if you have in your Audi.
