Audi offers iPhone option

Auto manufacturer Audi has unveiled a new optional Music Interface for its A5, A6, A8, and Q7 cars that allow owners to fully integrate Apple's iPhone into the vehicle for hands-free calling and music playback. The mobile phone support offered by Audi allows users to accept or reject a call, and displays signal strength as well as the provider's name in addition to transferring the telephone directory stored on the iPhone in their respective categories -- "Work," "Home," and "Mobile." The Audi Music Interface also supports playing music on-the-go, allowing users to navigate through songs by artist, track title, playlists, and genre.

    Wow, it is really something worth buying for... I wonder what model of Audi this technology would be compatible with... Or model not compatible with could upgrade just to have it... Mine is a 1993 Audi RS2... It is incredibly fast and solidly built.

    You need air-con as the pacesetter muffler and engine gives out an incredible amount of heat into the cabin.

    The space is OK but for an estate, not brilliant.

    The car sits VERY low and tends to scrape in car parks and on ramps - watch that front air duct!

    The quattro system is amazing. So much power, (315 ps), but the car just grips and goes. The RS2 has a strengthened 1st gear, (6 speed), as the S2 gear-box had a notoriously weaker 1st gear.

    Seats are wonderful and grippy.

    Car is very heavy and only really gets into its stride around 3000 rpm, but even below that, it is severely grin-inducing :-).

    Tyres are difficult to come by for the summer wheels, (only one tyre type approved, but now out of production), so most are being down-sized to 225's with some say, better grip and handling, so no problem.
