Jay does loads of custom stuff to his - you should check out his instagram.Where did you buy the CF interior piece🤔
HI The Facia can be ordered through Audi they ship from Japan, LHD & RHD. RHD Part Number is J42AE2C14 "Garnish" costs $300NZ!Do you have DAB on that one? Do you have to install an aerial somewhere on the glass?
Where did you get your fascia, I'm a fan of the slot at the bottom... edit: custom job, nice work!
(follow you on insta btw! lovely build)
According to this greek supplier of NavINC's product, second tab "compatibility", the R8 Gen 1 is listed. Also has a list of features and restrictions by model... Gelisound - Τα πάντα στο car audio!According to their latest youtube video, the part number for the conversion kit should be CP3-AUDI-RNSE . It says "More info: https://www.navinc.nl " but I didn't find any more info on the site.
What is not clear to me is if this solution only works with the older RNS-E 192 Mark 1 shown in the video (2008-2009 R8s) or the newer RSN-E 193 Mark 2 (2010-2015 R8s.)
if your installer can document it that would be gold dust on here as well as for the installer’s customers, if there are other R8 owners local to them!Yes Bovee is well known on this forum. I tried it (the Tune2Air brand: https://smile.amazon.com/Bovee-Wireless-Car-Kit-AUDI/dp/B00R2HZ1XU) and hated the horrible audio quality as compared to a wired connection via the MMI port.
I spoke with Gelisound. They confirmed the Carplay adapter will work with my 2012 GT (OEM headunit with 2 SD card slots when you drop the screen). But it will also require a Video-in-Motion adapter for the install.
Apparently the install is quite lengthy and involved, so he stressed you need a very experienced installer for this.
A few things:
- You can't use the radio function via CarPlay. So if you want to use the headunit radio, you have to exit CarPlay. And then re-engage CarPlay when you're done with the radio
- CarPlay will accept and work with an OEM backup camera retrofit (this is the one I have but have yet to install: Genuine Rear Camera, Supply and Fit Audi R8, 4S)
- CarPlay will work via a wired and wireless connection
That's the extent of what I could figure out. His English is very limited. Despite this, I think I'm gonna take the plunge and buy the setup, install it, and if we can get it working, ask my installer (high end shop) to see if he can document the install process to help others.
