    Sorry, I'm not reading the whole thread to see, but are you just getting the BitOne because you have optical? Just asking because the Alpine has crossover/EQ settings, so it may be a BIT redundant, ha! Obviously, the Alpine won't give you quite as much control, but I was able to flatten my signal nicely with it.

    I realize that the Alpine has crossover/EQ settings, but the Bit One will give me better control across the entire spectrum. I like that I can connect it to a laptop and make any adjustments via the software interface. I got a great deal on a used one so I'm happy with my purchase.

    Gents. Dumb question but does this work on a B.8.5 2014 S4? I see only mention of A4. Other than the S4 start up screen, I'm not aware of anything specific for the S. BTW, I don't have MMI. TIA!

    Han,

    It is possible to purchase new head end units on ebay for about USD$1300 or so, including freight. There are a number of European Auto HiFi shops on ebay that can source Alpine Europe components. UK sites as well, although my experience concludes they tend to discount less.

    Did anyone in the US successfully install this with no issue in functionality? This is basically what I have been looking for as we got a 2014 Audi Q5 premium which didn't come with much (only xenon lighting package). I wanted to confirm that it works with all the functionalities as the OEM unit would including Sat radio.

    If you do the audio upgrade there are different configurations depending on how you your car is equipped.

    The free install offer is still up but it only applies to the radio. Speaker install would be extra.
    @Christian@enfig The offer on the instal still stand?

    Can I use this in a car that has 2G High/NAV/BO? I wanted to upgrade to the 3G Plus but that is a bit more work than I want to dive into.

    What are the cons ---apart from the obvious one of risk of distracted driving?

    I wouldn't be dumb enough to watch videos while driving, of course.

    They are pretty much 1250-1300 from Europe. Impossible to find cheaper and they never go on sale used. This is the only one I have ever seen used

    I don't recall seeing if this unit can work with SD cards like the stock system. Has anyone tried using them with the X701D using an adapter? I have a ton of SD cards for use with the stock setup and it would be nice if I could use them with this unit.

    I am just getting ready to get the X701D installed in 2014 A4 quattro (6spd) with concert system, no MMI. I was wondering if the following adapter is needed for installation, and if so, anybody found a source for it. https://www.alpine.co.uk/p/Products/...View/KWE-BO1AU
    Thanks!
