STEREO UPGRADE

AUDI R8
STEREO UPGRADE

Apple CarPlay & Android Auto

As these two interfaces are becoming the norm in vehicles, the R8 is starting to feel a bit left behind. Whether you're an iPhone or Android user, upgrading to a stereo that uses these interfaces can transform the user experience in the vehicle.

The upgrade itself consists of removing the original stereo and replacing it with an aftermarket unit. Our fitting kit is used to mount the fascia to the vehicle securely, whilst maintaining an OEM appearance.

Along with this, we will use specific wiring harnesses that integrate into the factory cabling to ensure no modification to any original wiring. If the stereo chosen is DAB compatible, a DAB antenna will be fitted to the vehicle, along with the aftermarket microphone. The wiring harness used also ensures that the steering wheel controls remain functional and work with the aftermarket unit.

If an original reversing camera is present, we're able to integrate that into the aftermarket unit so it retains its functionality and displays an image on the screen, as it would from factory.

Complete upgrade kit

Although we're known for our custom work, we do go the extra mile when it comes to creating solutions for existing problems. As there has never been an off the shelf solution to upgrade the Audi R8's stereo to an aftermarket unit, we have designed, prototyped and manufactured a full installation kit to make this upgrade possible. This kit ensures a consistency in quality from install to install and also reduces the time that your vehicle is being worked on, meaning you can have the best finish possible in a shorter time frame.

Each fascia uses a specifically designed magnetic mount that secures to the vehicle in two factory screw locations. The kit has magnets embedded which pulls into the mount for a secure fixing which is completely reversible.
