Not sure if you have MMI MIB1?

To determine if your vehicle is equipped with MMI MIB1, please visit this page and follow the instructions.

Which Audi MMI do I have? MMI 2G, MMI 3G, RMC, MIB I or MIB II?

IMI-1000 Audio Connection to Car

IMPORTANT: If you do not have an AUX port you have two options:

1. Use an AUX-AMI cable and connect our wiring loom 3.5mm jack to the cable.

2. Enable AUX via VCDS or similar during installation. Enabling aux will enable our kit to connect directly to the AUX pin on the rear of the head unit, allowing for a completely hidden installation and no need for an AMI-AUX cable.


All IMI-1000’s are compatible with front parking camera, reverse parking camera and 360 degree cameras.
